A native of Wyoming, Ryan has also lived in Oregon, Colorado, New Mexico, and now Utah. During his most recent time in Casper, Wyoming he held the title of Director of Sales for Visit Casper. Here he oversaw the direct sales effort for meeting & conventions, group travel, FIT travel and sporting events. Most recently the tourism industry has taken him to Western Leisure, a receptive operator based out of Salt Lake City. Here Ryan holds the title of Director of Sales and is responsible for selling the Western US and Canadian Rockies to domestic tour operators in North America. Holding positions on both sides of the industry Ryan hopes to bring a unique perspective on how to make your city, hotel, and attraction more appealing for the domestic group travel industry.
