Over his career, Ryan has gained extensive experience with – and knowledge of – ERP HR/Payroll applications in both Canada and the US. He is a former Director of HRIS, Payroll, and Benefits for a major US university and holds a Master’s degree in Industrial Relations/Human Resources. He is also a certified consultant with PeopleSoft, Oracle, and Workday applications and has worked internationally on dozens of large-scale implementations.
Ryan taught HR technology courses at the West Virginia University Graduate School of Business for over 10 years before launching his first start-up tech company in 2004. He sold that company in 2010 to an international staffing company and in 2012 joined forces with his current partners to co-found Wagepoint.
