Ryan’s the CEO of a marketing agency.

He is the leader of Mascot Sports, which ignites the “rally for innovation through athletes, brands, and events,” according to the company’s official website. “Mascot represents a top-tier stable of clients in the areas of sponsorship strategy, experiential marketing and athlete representation. Our passionate team is a mix of execs and entrepreneurs who follow an alternative approach to create powerful opportunities, inspire change and evolve the endurance landscape,” the website further explained.

Ryan’s success all started when he “transformed running and cycling events through his company Project Sports, a venture he founded as a 25-year-old graduate student in 2002.” He went on to sell “a portfolio event to Competitor Group, which became the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in San Francisco, CA.” Project Sport was then “acquired by OmniForce, LLC” in Feb. 2014, “where Ryan was responsible for the integration of Project Sport into the Raceforce division.”
