Ryan Bio Pic


Ryan is also a co-founder of Maven lighting.  He has responsibilities in business development, finance, marketing, and maintaining the office water cooler.  Ryan knew from a young age that he wanted to be a business owner so he could be his own boss while maintaining his very mediocre golf game.  His passion in business is simple, it’s about helping customers save time and money with a white glove level of service.  Prior to Maven Lighting Ryan spent 14 years doing consultative sales and customer service in various industries including finance, healthcare and oil and gas.

Ryan has Bachelors in Business from Texas A&M University.  He is happily married.  In his spare time you can catch him on the golf course, in front of a grill or chatting with the guy behind the meat counter.
