Ryan was born and raised on the family farm in the small town of Minesing, Ontario, located on the outskirts of Barrie. Like most other kids in southern Ontario, Ryan grew up playing hockey on an outdoor rink in Minesing, participating in Springwater baseball, and hitting the links daily to play golf.
Ryan was introduced to the document management industry nearly 10 years ago where he has been involved in operations of one of the largest national document destruction companies featuring over 60 locations across the United States. After receiving feedback from numerous local business owners regarding the lack of service and flexibility in the Ontario market, Ryan knew it was time to return to his roots to create an industry changing service with a local flair for residents of central Ontario. This decision led to the creation of Shred North and Archive Document Storage.
