As a Sales Leader/Manager there are several skills that are a “must have”. Ryan possesses two of my favorites: The ability to see the potential in a candidate. Sometimes people don’t look good on paper, but have the will and desire to be great. Leaders have to be able to see the possibilities in a hire.Ralph Myers – Entrepreneur / Managing Partner
Whether you have a little or a lot of talent on your team you have to know how to bring out the best in people. Ryan understands how to develop skills that make his people successful. To make them better then their best. I could go on about other skills, but if you give me a Leader that has my big TWO I will show you someone that can lead any of my teams with great success.
As a sales captain for our team, Ryan WAS the reason for our success. I was the operations manager at the time and his consistent sales kept my team working and profitable. He kept one eye on our capabilities and operations and the other on the market, ensuring that he could close deals right on time and set expectations that we could meet and exceed for our customers. His business acumen, overall strategy, and (most importantly) skills to find and close good business were why we saw the success that we did. Ryan is a caring, capable, business mind that I would put on any team. I simply couldn’t recommend him any more highly.Michael Luallen – Business Advisory Manager

I had the pleasure of working with Ryan for about a year and a half and learned a lot from him. His preparation and attention to detail involving Sales are second to none. While teaming up with Ryan on some joint business appointments I was able to adopt some of these skills and it, therefore, made me a better Salesman. I know that Ryan will be successful in his new role because of this and wish him the best!Rashad Boggs – Mortgage Supervisor
I have known Ryan for many years. We were both members of Phi Kappa Tau Fraternity in college, for which Ryan served as President. I have seen firsthand Ryan’s passion and drive, which inevitably take him to the top of his pursuits both professionally and recreationally. Ryan is dependable, compassionate, intelligent, loyal, and motivated.
He is a natural-born leader. His likability and genuine concern for others make him an asset in any sales and front-of-house roles; while his leadership, organization, and analytical skills make him an operational asset as well. Ryan would certainly be an asset to any business and/ or team.Lawrence Demasi, CTFA – VP Personal Trust
I have known Ryan for the past six years. From the first time I met him, he immediately struck me as a leader and someone I could trust. Not knowing very many people in a new city and starting at a new company presented new challenges for me. Ryan took me under his wing and helped to show me the ropes. He demonstrated this because he could see that I was someone that needed help, and not because he was told to. That is the kind of leadership that you look for. I appreciate Ryan for helping to bring me up to speed and making me feel welcome.
For that reason, I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking for help or looking to collaborate. He will give you an honest answer, help where he can, and refer you to someone if he can’t. There’s not much more you can ask for in a person, in my opinion. Thanks, Ryan.Tyler Neff – Manager of Strategic Partnerships
Ryan is a dedicated and passionate leader that strives to exceed expectations. He is driven to not only succeed himself, but to put anyone around him in a position to succeed as well. In my time working with him, I learned that he is direct, decisive and energetic. I highly recommend Ryan as a Supervisor or Employee for any business. I believe that having Ryan work for you in any capacity will benefit your organization.Jeff Davidson – Operations Manager
I attended a training session Ryan facilitated, and it was so helpful! I loved hearing his story and real-life example of his sales techniques. He is incredibly talented, and such a great teacher. I was able to use a few of his sales approaches and incorporate them into a presentation I was doing just a few days later. It was great!Tricia Prues – Agency Owner
Ryan is driven, intelligent, genuine, and a great partner to work with! Ryan has always acted with care and urgency, and I would recommend working with him on any project as he is a fantastic listener and teammate.Kara Howard – Talen Acquisition Manager
What’s the most important skill in sales? Prospecting? No. Qualifying? Nope. Pipeline management? Still no. CRM mastery! No. Bonding and rapport? Not quite. Negotiating! Nein. Finding pain? No. Finding the decision maker! Not yet. Oh, asking questions, it has to be asking good questions!! All important but not the most important. Ergh, what is it then?? Ready to give up? The most important skill in sales is serving others. If you can help somebody reach their own goals and live a better life you are a master at sales. Ryan possesses all of these skills and more. He’s a relationship builder, problem solver, and leader. His clients grow revenue and live better lives. Don’t believe me? Ask around.Nick Smith – Director of Sales & Marketing
