Steve Ryan Recognized as C-Suite of the Year Award Honoree


RyTech, LLC Founder & CEO Steve Ryan has been chosen by the Daily Herald Business Ledger as a 2020 C-Suite of the Year Honoree. The C-Suite Award honors C-level executives for the leadership, business, and civic contributions they have made to their organizations and to the suburban Chicago community.

Since founding RyTech, a digital marketing firm, in 2012, Steve Ryan has driven the company’s growth. In just a few years, he’s taken it from a solopreneur operation at his dining room table to a thriving, award-winning firm with a growing team and four locations. Primarily responsible for the overall strategic direction of the company, including developing new business opportunities, he skillfully leads his team to fulfill RyTech’s promise of exceptional customer care. RyTech continually has strong year-over-year growth without compromising productive and efficient operations; this is just one manifestation of Ryan’s savvy leadership. 

“I’m humbled and honored to receive this recognition from the Daily Herald Business Ledger, among a tremendous group of fellow executives at companies within our region,” commented Steve Ryan. “This award is truly a testament to our remarkable team, fantastic clients, and supportive family members who are the backbone of any leader. Without these individuals, I wouldn’t be the person I am today.”

Contributing to the community, Ryan currently serves on the boards of Pillars Community Health and Nazareth Academy, and previously served on the boards of West Suburban Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Marquette University Alumni Association National Board of Directors. At Nazareth Academy, Ryan is a member of the Executive Committee and Chairs the Marketing Committee. At Pillars Community Health, Ryan is a member of the Executive, Finance, and Governance Committees, currently serving as board chair. 

“Steve’s work ethic, never-ending drive, and dedication are what have guided RyTech to be the successful organization it is today. His commitment to continually bettering RyTech and the organizations he serves are more than enough to make him deserving of this recognition,” said Sam Kessenich, RyTech’s Chief Digital Officer.

Ryan was nominated by Sue Reardon, Co-Founder & Community Connector at Suite Spotte. He will be honored with 19 peers at a virtual recognition webcast on Thursday, July 23 at 4 pm.
