He sets the strategic direction for OWC and is responsible for operational management and business development. In addition, Ryan oversees risk management processes within the private debt portfolio, including: credit, keyman, facilities, capital placement and concentrations.
Prior to joining The Terra Cotta Financial Group, Ryan co-founded and helped build Oxygen Working Capital, an innovative and growing private debt firm. He worked in the oil and gas industry in Alberta during the boom of the 1990’s. His experience helping business owners who struggled to fund their business operations and growth was the impetus that inspired him to launch his own private debt firm. He’s been funding startups and entrepreneurs across a broad range of industry verticals ever since. Despite his 24/7 commitment to his clients, Ryan and his wife find time for adventure, keeping up with their four young children, whether on the rink, the court or the playing field.
