Ryan founded Inperium in January of 2016. Inperium is the sole member of non-profit agencies that provide person-centric mental health, intellectual disability, co-occurring disorders services, health-related supports, and other related services. Inperium was established to support and oversee affiliated companies to ensure quality services and continuity of care, and efficient use of public funding and resources. The corporation is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of its Officers and independent members of the communities served by Inperium.

In his present position as President of Inperium, Inc. & Family of Services, Ryan continues his efforts to expand upon his proven track record of developing, revitalizing, and growing business enterprises. Ryan continues to further utilize his strategic planning and implementation strengths, to guide and direct other enterprises through substantial change management, with strong and effective leadership and an on-going commitment to providing quality outcomes to all stakeholder representatives.

Ryan’s numerous and varied experiences have resulted in significant successes for the communities served by Inperium’ s “Family of Services”, as well as for those employed by these entities. During Ryan’s tenure as CEO of Supportive Concepts for Families, revenue has grown from $4.5 million in 2000, to more than $65 million in 2018. In addition, as a direct result of a strategically planned quality management system, SCFF’s 1,300 employees (grown from 200 when Ryan assumed CEO duties) provide consistent and high quality services. The company employees, the most valuable asset of quality human service organizations, also derive benefit from an Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP). This “first of its kind” program for a non-profit, was created in March of 2015.

Since March of 2000, Ryan has also served as the President and CEO of Supportive Concepts for Families, Inc. During his tenure, he developed and oversaw business processes to realize efficient and effective utilization of corporate resources; to achieve both organic growth as well as the development of a diversified array of services and of corporate structure. Through introduction of a focused strategic planning process, Ryan has also ensured that these business processes resulted in an equilibrium between the company mission and vision which reflect person focused values. Ryan has long credited these achievements, to the experiences he gained when he had the privilege of beginning his tenure with Supportive Concepts for Families, as a Program Coordinator in November of 1993, serving as the Director of Programs for more than two years, and then as Chief Operating Officer prior to his appointment as CEO.
