With more than a decade of contingent, executive search, team-build and consultancy experience, Ryan decided to launch Intaso in 2020 to offer a complete set of talent solutions to the Cyber Industry. Ryan is a CISMP qualified head-hunter and CAPSLOCK mentor who still keeps his hands on the tools with Exec Security searches, delivering webinars and industry talks at BSides, and attending events like Blackhat and Defcon.
Ryan is a family man who has two young boys with his wife Kerry, and can often be seen chasing them around and getting muddy. An avid sports nut, Ryan trains in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, has just managed to get his golf handicap to single figures and still hasn’t managed to hang up his rugby boots after 30 years! Aside from this, he is a keen Crypto investor and is always looking to further himself when it comes to self-development and mental health.
“Ryan placed me as CISO at Abellio at the beginning of one of the strangest times (COVID-19 break out). If that wasn’t impressive enough, he did it whilst setting up his new business and expecting a new addition to his family who also arrived just as I started at Abellio! Ryan was incredibly professional and warm throughout. He never made any empty promises and was always transparent. I look forward to working with him in the future either to find staff or change roles myself. “
“Ryan has a proactive approach, in that he is always thinking outside the box and suggesting alternative ways to address my recruitment issues... his thoughts are always on the horizon for my next recruitment challenge. Ryan is a rare breed in his honest, respectful, proactive and sensible approach to Cyber recruitment, often reworking his calendar to meet my challenging needs. There are only a few recruitment companies that I would trust to find me quality Cyber candidates, with Ryan being right up there with the best!!”
“Fantastic to work with, sets a very high bar for the recruitment industry and a pleasure to know. Ryan is one of the few who still conduct business face to face (which is absolutely essential for us) and has never failed to deliver quality candidates, pre-screened and well suited for the role. A genuine, hard working character I'm sure I'll be working with for years to come.”
