Ryan grew up at Strong’s Marine. Like his father, he began painting boat bottoms and running the gas dock. He received his Yamaha engine certification at 16 and worked 30 hours a week at Strong’s while getting his college degree. After college, he continued to grow in the family business. Ryan now oversees facilities and manages marina operations company-wide. He is happily married to wife Tiffany, and they have a baby boy named Bradley. Ryan enjoys traveling the world, and makes sure to visit marinas wherever he lands, seeking out good ideas he can implement back home to improve the productivity of Strong’s facilities.
