Dan entered the Talent Acquisition and Talent Development market in 2006 and founded Ryan Search & Consulting, now ryan partners,  in 2010.  Dan’s background in the Industrial and professional services world, serving in roles ranging from Operations Manager to Vice President of Human Resources, provides him with a platform to understand what clients experience in their daily business lives.

Dan still takes a hands-on approach and is involved in many of the projects that this firm engages in and he actively participates in a wide range of groups involving both client industries and organizations working to make our region a better place to live.

Ryan Partners has grown from being primarily a Talent Acquisition firm into one that provides a broad range of services in Talent AcquisitionPersonal and Organizational Development (Vistage) and Behavioral Assessment  (Predictive Index-PI).  These additional service offerings enable the firm to provide a more comprehensive approach to the needs of each client.

Our Values

Every firm talks about their Values, but we try to live ours in all that we do. Here are the core values we embrace as the foundation for our firm.

We Listen

We treat ourselves and our customers with respect. We develop relationships that make a positive difference in our clients’ lives.

We Build Trust

We build trust through transparency and open, authentic communication. We assume positive intent and are the first to extend trust.

We are Dedicated to Others.

We create lasting and positive impact in the industries in which we operate. When we work hard, stay focused, and act in service to others, we believe anything is possible.

We are Problem Solvers

We are creative and resourceful, dedicated to life-long learning. We are open to change and maintain flexibility. We respect data and make human decisions.

We are Humble

We recognize there is no such thing as “individual success” in life. We are unanimous in victory and acknowledge those who have helped us along the way.
