Ryan’s Journal: Meet Ryan Pew

by Miki Saxon

I e-met Ryan through business dealings that led to several long, intelligent, wide-ranging conversations. I found Ryan thoughtful, knowledgeable, and wonderfully verbal. I asked him if he would be interested in writing a weekly post and, happily, he said yes.

I think you will find his views interesting; he is a Millennial, relatively new dad, works in a MedTech cyber startup and has a good sense of humor (and probably needs it.)

Ryan just came back from a holiday vacation in Canada and sent this picture.

When I asked if he skied, he replied, “Hey, I live in Florida. I don’t ski, I just stood next to the mountain, but never went up. lol”

So enough of me, here’s Ryan.

When I was asked to write the first thing that came to mind was why?

By that I mean I wanted to understand the why behind both this blog and Miki’s request for me to participate. I will keep that question in mind throughout my writings and look forward to this as an opportunity to learn.

I am approaching this as a platform for me to learn and hopefully convey some of my findings to you. My posts will focus on culture and values both from a personal perspective but more broadly from an organizational perspective. Now this is a topic that is covered far and wide so why bother? Because at the bedrock of it all, culture will make or break an organization.

Have you ever seen a group of people who one day have a different outcome from previous ones? Maybe they have a different leader, new goals or something else. I can guarantee that culture is somewhere to be found in there. Good or bad culture will have an impact in the long term.

I did not always believe this, but went through personal experiences that taught me otherwise. I hope to share some of those experiences along our journey together, as well as learn from others who have built successful organizations.

What is my background? I have had a varied life up till now and hope to continue upon that trajectory moving forward. I served several years as a United States Marine, I have worked in sales management in a fortune 50 company, tried my hand at a startup in college and currently work for a successful SaaS startup in Florida. I have used all of these experiences and more to forge a foundation for what makes success and will continue upon that path moving forward.

I look forward to your joining me on that path and sharing your experiences when moved to do so.
