Ryan Clark is an entrepreneur, former college athlete, and one of the most prolific Business Brokers and Mergers & Acquisitions Intermediaries in the nation. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts in Finance at The University of Nevada Las Vegas, Ryan joined Citigroup as a Senior Financial Planner for high-net-worth individuals and gained considerable experience in corporate retirement planning, investment management, insurance, and estate planning.
In 2003 he joined his childhood friends in launching The Veld Group. Since its founding, and due in large part to Ryan’s contributions, The Veld Group and Veld Mergers and Acquisitions has completed over 350 formal and 5,000+ informal business valuations and orchestrated over 1,000 sell-side transactions with an 80%+ success rate versus the 30% industry standard.
Ryan attributes his extraordinary business success to his support network which includes his family and friends, his early entrepreneurial experience and to the discipline he developed as a lifelong athlete. This discipline, coupled with the wisdom he has gained over a 20-year career has propelled him to the top of the brokerage industry where he believes “grace complements achievement”.
