Ryan Wannenburg

I was intrigued by the IT sector as technology is constantly emerging. I learned the ropes so to speak in IT recruitment with Greythorn for 3 years which helped develop a deep understanding of clients needs to secure the best available talent on the market. In 2010, I had an opportunity to join Solas IT Recruitment as a Principal Account Manager in Dublin. Working to my strengths to go above and beyond all expectations for clients and candidates alike, I actively keep myself knowledgeable about emerging and trending technologies especially with the presence of .Net in Ireland. In my spare time (the little I have with 2 young children ) I enjoy F1 and a good BBQ.
