My Story

With over 25 years of experience in commercial real estate and construction, Ryan has amassed a wealth of expertise across various industry sectors. Prior to establishing Novus, he served as a Principal at Verus Partners, LLC, where he spearheaded the development of diverse projects totaling over $1B dollars. His responsibilities encompassed the management of all phases, from land acquisition and infrastructure development to build-to-suit and speculative construction projects in both industrial and office sectors.

Ryan's professional footprint extends across multiple markets in the US and Canada. From overseeing a manufacturing build-to-suit in Casper, WY, to directing the construction of an office building near Scranton, PA, he has demonstrated his versatility and acumen in delivering successful outcomes. Noteworthy among his achievements is the recent completion of the multi-phase redevelopment of a 44-acre brownfield industrial property in Mississauga, ON, the construction of the 2.1 million square feet GreenParke at Airwest Business Park in Plainfield, IN, and the development of the Valvoline headquarters office building in Lexington, KY, along with two speculative industrial projects exceeding 1 million square feet each in eastern Pennsylvania.

Prior to his tenure at Verus Partners, Ryan honed his skills at a design/build general construction firm based in Indianapolis, IN. There, he managed a spectrum of office and industrial projects from estimating to closeout, overseeing ground-up construction as well as tenant improvement initiatives. He holds a degree in Civil Engineering and worked through college for the Illinois Department of Transportation Engineering Division on several large-scale public infrastructure projects.

He is committed to both his clients and values all members of his project teams in achieving outcomes that are mutually successful.
