What is a fun fact about yourself that people might not know?

I have traveled and visited 24 different Major League Baseball stadiums. My goal is to see all 30 MLB stadiums eventually. What started out as an ambitious goal between my brother and me was to see all the current MLB baseball stadiums suddenly seem within reach. I hope to visit the remaining stadiums over the next few summers. 

What is your favorite thing about working at fusionSpan?

My favorite thing about working at fusionSpan is how collaborative the environment is. Everyone is always willing to help when needed, regardless of whether they are working on your project or not. I cannot stress enough just how much I appreciate working at a place where colleagues prioritize collective goals rather than personal ones. 

What are some of your hobbies or interests?

Sports is one of my biggest hobbies. I am a part of a curling league and have joined softball, baseball, and basketball leagues in past summers.  I enjoy exploring new music and going to concerts. I also enjoy watching movies and going to the cinema to see as many new releases as possible.

Ryan RamSince joining fusionSpan, how have you grown professionally?

I have no doubt become a better consultant since joining fusionSpan. Getting to work alongside some incredible people has allowed me to develop better practices for working with clients. I have also improved my technical knowledge as a result of working consistently with colleagues who share insights I didn’t know or better ways of implementing Salesforce and Fonteva.

What do you like most about fusionSpan?

I love how fusionSpan fosters a culture of inclusion and open-mindedness. It is amazing how receptive everyone at fusionSpan is to hearing new ideas, thoughts, and suggestions. Since the first day, I started at fusionSpan, I have never felt like I couldn’t say what I was thinking or that things I said wouldn’t be valued or appreciated. In fact, fusionSpan actively encourages employees to challenge the status quo and think of ways to make improvements, something many companies are hesitant to do. 

Favorite Animal and why?

Dogs are definitely my favorite animal. I’ve never owned one, but I can confidently say with 100% certainty that I will one day. I didn’t use to be a dog person, but I have developed a true fondness for them. My social media algorithms have caught on to this because all they consistently feed me is dog content, which I don’t mind. I love how genuine and loyal dogs are and that all they want is to have fun and eat some food.

Is there a quote or motto that you live by/ has stuck with you?

A motto that I live by each day is to do what makes you happy. We’ve only got so much time on this planet, so why should we do things that don’t bring joy to our lives? I really started to embrace this motto within the last few years, and I’ve never been happier. I’ve created some incredible memories and seized opportunities I would never have by simply saying ”yes!”

What is your favorite movie?

Oooooh. That’s a tough one. There are so many movies I love. If I had to pick only one, I would have to say Shawshank Redemption is my favorite. I’ve probably seen this movie at least 20 times and will literally never turn down an opportunity to watch it again.
