Ryan started out his business career as an Accountant, receiving an BS in Accounting from Southern Utah University. He quickly realized that his passion was for entrepreneurship and marketing so he finished his MBA and struck out on his own. After 5 years of success in the world of web marketing and lead generation, he was approached to develop an applicant tracking system specifically focused on smaller companies.
He founded ApplicantPro in 2005 with the singular mission of helping small and mid sized employers improve their hiring results. Going far beyond applicant tracking, Ryan has used his web marketing background to create innovative approaches that help smaller employers dramatically improve their applicant flow and hiring.
As the CEO of ApplicantPro, Ryan has successfully bootstrapped his company from a startup into a multi-million dollar growth company with over 80 employees and 4000 clients in 10 countries. ApplicantPro’s 10 years of consistent 50%+ annual year-over-year growth has resulted in it being recognized by Mountain West Capital as one of the 100 fastest growing companies in Utah and by Inc Magazine as one of the 5000 fastest growing companies in the US for the last 4 years in a row. He’s also travelled around the country and spoken at various SHRM events including National SHRM for the past four years.
