Ryan joined GBQ in 2017 after spending four years with the regional firm Clark Schaefer Hackett. Ryan initially began his career as a Revenue Agent within the Small Business/Self-Employed division of the IRS.

In the course of his five years in public accounting, Ryan has primarily served closely-held, family-owned businesses, advising on tax efficient strategies and incentives which benefit both the business and their owners. Ryan has also provided significant services to clients on M&A based engagements, ranging from the acquisition of a tech start-up to the sale of a multi-national, multi-state manufacturing entity.

Ryan’s experience at the IRS also provides valuable insight in navigating the complexities of IRS examination and collection procedures. This insight has led to numerous “no-change” examinations.

In addition to his work at GBQ, Ryan also serves as a board and Finance Committee member for St. Joseph Orphanage.
