“I am thrilled to be a part of the forward momentum at Ryko Solutions and to help further their progress in developing and directing a first-class leadership team and staff,” explained Hogan. “For the last six years, I have had the opportunity to observe corporations in a myriad of transformation circumstances while operating as an independent consultant helping companies recruit and develop leaders. None has been so promising as the foundation that has been set at Ryko. Here employees are truly emboldened to be game changers and culture leaders.”
