Ryan Gay (he/him/his) is driven by a simple mission: To make other people’s lives and work a little bit easier. At Credo, he leverages his broad knowledge of IT to live that mission into reality. In the process, he’s made an indelible impact on our staff and the institutions we serve.  

A Technology Troubleshooter by Trade

As Associate Vice President for Information Technology, Ryan is focused on updating our infrastructure and leveraging technology so Credo can thrive in a post-pandemic world. A gifted troubleshooter, Ryan loves solving problems for his coworkers, serving as a strategic thought partner for our business development, finance, operations, technology, and client divisions. Colleagues say Ryan has a keen memory for details and can build a solution out of whatever information they provide, enabling the optimization of work in every corner of our firm. 

I have a strong ability to listen to the needs and challenges of others to figure out dynamic solutions and support their needs—allowing others to ideate while I focus on building the solution.

Infusing Work with Warmth

Ryan is a firm believer that, if you’re going to spend most of your life at work, you might as well have fun while you’re doing it. He brings humor, kindness, and thoughtfulness to each interaction he has with colleagues and clients. Ryan brings a similar approach to his personal life, where he’s a proud uncle to Khloe and Braxton and a loving dad to his Westie named Tessa.

Fun fact

Ryan was born on Leap Day – so at "9-years-old," he ranks as Credo’s "youngest" employee.
