Ryan brought StoryBuilt to Texas in 2005 and expanded the company’s holdings from a small rental property portfolio in Arizona to our more than 1,000 for sale or rental units. Ryan helps oversee land acquisition and development efforts and is instrumental in guiding complex re-zoning, as well as subdivision and commercial site plans through multiple municipalities. He has led negotiations with neighborhood groups, city staff, historic commissions, and city council members – all with the vision of intelligently increasing density in desirable urban areas. Ryan also helps develop the capitalization and investment structure of each community.
Prior to forming StoryBuilt, Ryan helped lead the finance department of iTax Group, a tax consulting and software firm in Phoenix AZ, serving as the company’s Chief Financial Officer from 2001-2005.
