In his new role, Ryan will guide the firm’s efforts to streamline its finance and accounting operations. He will also be leveraging his extensive experience in data analysis and data management to create a robust, enterprise-wide analytical infrastructure that will include the necessary financial management standards and metrics to ensure the future success of Xactus.
