Ryan Blackwell joins the Let’s Get Ready Board with more than 20 years of achievements in public and private equity-structured organizations as a driven sales and operating executive.

He joined Renaissance in 2020 and most recently served as Global Head of Revenue Operations/Enablement at Refinitiv. Prior to joining Refinitiv, Ryan was an operating executive at Cerberus Capital Management. In both roles, he was responsible for improving sales and revenue growth within Refinitiv and Cerberus’s wide range of portfolio companies. 

Ryan’s reputation as a great leader has followed him across industries, proven most recently at Renaissance in how he led his teams and supporting operations successfully through the ongoing pandemic and multiple acquisitions in 2021, enabling company and revenue growth through a particularly challenging environment.

He is also actively involved in supporting Renaissance’s DEI mission – to accelerate learning for all, by building a Renaissance for all – through his executive sponsorship of the Renaissance Black Employee Network employee resource group.

Ryan has been instrumental in sales transformations and core product growth as both a sales and operating executive. He holds a BSBA from the school of Industrial Technology at Eastern Michigan University.

We welcome him into our community and look forward to his leadership as part of our Board of Directors.
