Ryan joined WALSH in 1988 as a laborer while still in high school. After completing his college education, Ryan joined WALSH’s management trainee program, working his way into positions of greater leadership and skill – from laborer to carpenter to assistant superintendent and eventually on to superintendent.
During his years in the trades, Ryan acquired a vast knowledge of construction systems specializing in wood-framed buildings, with a focus on student housing projects and educational facilities. Having been with the company for so many years, Ryan has completed some of our most technical projects and is extremely familiar with WALSH’s project management processes. In 2017, Ryan was named Vice President and assumed the role of General Manager for Walsh Construction Co.’s Oregon division, working with the region’s project managers on all preconstruction efforts. As General Manager, Ryan takes an active role in the preconstruction process, tracking the success of our projects all the way through construction completion.
