Growing up in a family owned business household gave Ryan Hurst a firsthand appreciation for the hard work involved in running a successful company. Over the course of his 17-year career, this perspective proved valuable as Ryan carved out a professional niche of helping owners identify their vision for the future of their businesses and translating that vision into reality.
A Partner in RKL’s Business Consulting Services Group and an in-demand transaction consultant, Ryan’s areas of expertise include advising clients on buying and selling businesses (M&A); succession planning; conducting valuations for a variety of transactions and structures; employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) transactions; real estate development; and strategic alternatives analyses. In 2015, Ryan deepened his industry expertise and expanded his relevance to his clients by earning the Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) designation, placing him among the most highly qualified, ethical and experienced appraisal professionals nationwide.
Ryan starts every business transaction and ownership transition with an honest and transparent discussion around the owner’s goals and priorities. This approach allows him to deliver the utmost value and earn the trust of his clients during what can be a complex stage in a company’s lifecycle.
“My goal throughout my career has been to help business owners look up from the daily grind and consider the big picture view of their company and what it does and can do for them.”
Ryan resides in Sinking Spring with his wife and two daughters. Ryan is an avid runner, cyclist and Ironman triathlon finisher. He also enjoys traveling, reading and spending time with family.
