Ryan provides expertise to business owners and leaders in navigating where to take their business next. His commercial acumen and strategic thinking are invaluable, especially in times of organisational, or market change.
With an astute understanding of companies and how they work, Ryan’s clients value his ability to analyse how their business stacks up with their competitors to strategise a clear path forward that addresses their objectives, whether that be growth, business succession, identifying acquisition opportunities, or preparing for sale.
By layering his business acumen with a commercial approach, Ryan not only develops tailored strategies for companies but partners with them to ensure they are implemented effectively. Ryan knows his work has been successful not only when a company effectively navigates a transaction but when they’re able to smoothly carry out the transition process — a key area of Ryan’s expertise.
Ryan has had a global career, spanning the UK, Bermuda, Singapore, and Australia, which brings a cross-border lens to his engagements. This is particularly valuable to companies with an international presence or those looking to expand overseas.
Prior to joining Pitcher Partners, Ryan led strategy and network development for Baker Tilly International. Earlier in his career, he worked with Grant Thornton providing strategy, transaction, and advisory services, including establishing and running their advisory services office in Bermuda.
Coaching and mentoring professionals to identify and achieve their goals is another large focus of Ryan’s work which he finds immensely rewarding. He was a mentor in the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants’ Accelerator Program, Singapore, and has completed Harvard Business School’s leading professional services and organisational leadership programme.
Ryan joined Pitcher Partners Melbourne in 2022.
