Most recently, Ryan co-founded Obie, a portfolio and insurance management platform for small- to medium-sized multifamily and commercial real estate owners. The Obie platform helps owners gain access to risk management tools and carriers to help decrease insurance spend on their assets in an effort to create higher yields, IRR, and cash flow by better managing one of the largest expenses on the balance sheet.
Obie currently services and provides insurance and risk management for more than 10,000 apartment units and millions of commercial space square footage.
Ryan has written on CRE for publications like Propmodo, Think Realty, REoptimizer, and Realty Times.
His CRE portfolio management platform, Obie, was praised in Forbes for its blending of proptech and insurtech, marking it "the best of both worlds" for CRE portfolio management.
Ryan earned a bachelor of science from Michigan State University and a master's in Architecture from Clemson University.
