Ryan started his career working for large organizations including FedEx and Enterprise, where he eventually elevated himself into roles of high level leadership, coaching and recruitment. He specialized in creating dynamic systems and protocols, while leading large teams towards success. These skills, along with a desire to build something of his own, inspired him to dive into entrepreneurship. With a great team, he created and grew the first cold pressed juice company on Vancouver Island. Starting a business in a fledgling industry, Ryan learned a lot of lessons the hard way. But after 5 years he reached a personal goal of being able to step back from the day to day, and let it run without him. Ryan now brings his passion of helping others to BTA. His role in Member Success allows him to get to know BTA members and their businesses on an personal level, ensuring they don’t learn every lesson the hard way.
When he’s not getting lost in a Central American jungle or climbing through a box canyon in Arizona, Ryan lives in Nanaimo, British Columbia, where he enjoys exploring the local wilderness, drinking coffee and playing board games.
