Ryan has worked in the financial industry for 18 years, since graduating from the University of Lethbridge ,with a Bachelor of Management, majoring in Finance. His first role in the industry was as an Associate Estate and Insurance Advisor, which helped to identify the importance of planning for income and asset protection early on in his career.
Ryan later moved to BMO Nesbitt Burns where he has spent a combined 15 years with the firm. During his time at Nesbitt Burns, Ryan has earned several designations including the Professional Financial Planner (PFP), and the Chartered Investment Manager (CIM), which enables him to manage money on a discretionary basis for his clients.
In 2016, Ryan was a Nominee for the Investment Industry of Canada (IIAC) Top Under 40 Award.
Ryan has also been a part of the branch management team at Nesbitt Burns for the past 11 years, where he currently Manages Branches covering Calgary, Red Deer and Medicine Hat, in addition to his home branch in Lethbridge.
On a personal note, Ryan has a passion for golf and working in the yard landscaping. Ryan's wife Shawn, and their son Hudson love to travel to warm destinations to escape the windy Lethbridge weather, and use this time to meet up with their family from the USA. For Ryan and his family, life is about experiences, as they have a small family and find value in being able to head out on an annual vacation somewhere new. As with any family with young children, when Ryan and Shawn are not working, they have no problems being kept busy!
