Steve Ryan

Founder & CEO

Since founding RyTech in 2012, Steve Ryan has driven the company’s growth from a solopreneur at his dining room table to a thriving seven figure, award winning firm with a growing team over four offices. Steve is energized by helping businesses prosper through their digital marketing efforts. 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.

Previously trained as an educator, Steve continues to impart knowledge onto businesses and their leaders by speaking at conferences, conventions, trade shows, and more. His presentations help take the mystery out of online marketing, produce the best return on investment, and allow his audience to stay ahead of the latest digital marketing trends.

Steve has an undergraduate degree from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and a master’s degree from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.


What are your main responsibilities at work?

A lot of responsibilities fall on my plate at RyTech, but the ones that I enjoy the most are new business development, client relationship management and traveling across the country, speaking on digital marketing topics.

If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?

If I only have to pick one, my team would say I was mildly obsessed for Rachel Platten for a short time, but I’m a much bigger Zac Brown Band fan seeing them at Wrigley Field and Nationals Park.

Are you a night owl or morning person?

Morning person for sure. I can barely make it past 10pm!

Favorite holiday and why?

Thanksgiving. I love the fact that we gather together to be thankful for the many blessings in our lives at least once a year and you don’t have to worry about gifts, just the pumpkin cheesecake.

Dogs or cats?

Dogs only. Cats freak me out. I grew up with a 150 pound Greater Swiss Mountain dog.

What’s your favorite famous or inspirational quote?

“Fall in Love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.” – Pedro Arrupe, SJ

If you had an extra hour in the day, how would you spend it?

With my kids. I love watching them grow, interact, play, and discover life through a new lens.

How would you describe your perfect Sunday?

The kids sleeping past 6am, followed by mass and brunch, an afternoon of watching football or watching/playing golf, and a family dinner!
