Senior Director, Client Strategy & Business Development
Hi, I am Ryan … Before joining Gabriel Group, I owned my own business, Marketology, for six years. As a direct response marketing consultant, I coordinated both online and offline marketing programs from inception to launch for clients across the country. Prior to launching my own firm, I garnered twelve years of direct marketing experience at various companies where I held titles of Senior Account Executive, Director of Business Development and Vice President of Sales. I hold both an MBA and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Drake University where I was a member of men’s golf team.
When I am not in the office, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. We are a very social family, so there are always things to do, especially with my wife Tracey running our family calendar. I also like to enjoy the beach, cook, garden, play golf, fish, coach youth sports, do yoga and travel.
My first job was at a golf course – I will never forget it. I was 13, and it was early in the summer. My dad came home from work and said guess what “you’re starting a job tomorrow morning at the golf course.” It was the best thing my dad did for me at a young age instilling responsibility, self-accomplishment and a proven work ethic.
As a child, I wanted to grow up to be a marine biologist. My love for the ocean continues to this day.
