In the CFO role, Ryan will be responsible for the financial management of the organization while developing key innovations and leading several strategic initiatives. “Ryan brings with him a diverse business background, a Wharton MBA and proven leadership experience, which will strengthen our executive team as we prepare to surpass the $100 million revenue milestone,” said Garet Hil, Founder & CEO of the NKR.
Prior to joining the NKR, Ryan was a Managing Partner of Aviano Capital, an acquisition fund, where he raised seed capital from Private Equity firms and secured $100 million in conditional commitments for private company acquisitions.
Before Aviano, Ryan led operations at Unison Energy, which designs, installs, and operates distributive power generation solutions across North America. Under his operational leadership, the company experienced growth of 150% over 3 years and raised $150 million of investor growth capital. Prior to Unison, Ryan worked as an Oil & Gas trader at J.P.
