OWNER, BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE
My favorite aspect of working at IPI is that the relationships between teammates go back 40 years which makes you feel like you are part of the IPI family. Going from project to project you always bump into a familiar face. Our team members never miss a teaching moment and would rather see you swim than sink. There is enough opportunity that you can wear multiple hats. This keeps the fast paced environment as challenging as you want it to be. I love watching our culture drive business. It is also rewarding when clients want IPI’s teams back on their projects.
Ryan is responsible for sales and business development activities as well as operations support.

OUTSIDE THE OFFICE:
I enjoy doing too much, too little, and everything in between. I am either hiking, traveling or sleeping and being lazy! My wife Megan and I have 3 children. Jackson is 9 and rising quick. We have twins (Tristan and Annalee) that are following in Jackson’s footsteps. On Saturdays, you might find me cooking on the smoker in the backyard! We are looking forward to post Covid schooling.
