Born and raised in the Treasure Valley, Ryan quickly made best use of Idaho’s great economic conditions. Spending the first 10 years of his career in the commercial real estate industry helping companies relocate, expand, and downsize their office locations across the Northwest. Ryan is an entrepreneur at heart, who started and acquired seven successful businesses in a variety of industries, eventually selling all of them. Vantage Group Accounting has partnered with Ryan to bring its clients an expert resource in the very real struggles that all small-to-medium-size companies face at one point or another during the business growth journey. When Ryan isn’t traveling for business or pleasure, or helping a client solve a problem, you might find him on a local short track like Meridian Speedway on a Saturday night racing a legend car. Ryan and his wife Rebecca have two kids who, like their dad, are eager to take on the day. His family is also owned by their golden retriever.
