Ryan Farinella



As Director of Operations, Ryan is responsible for aligning business objectives with employees and management across the entire agency. He is a catalyst for process improvements, staff planning, agency growth, and increased profitability. His role is critical in advancing key initiatives that help recruit and retain top talent, improve and maximize existing client revenue, and position the agency for successful new business.

Now in his second stint at Blue Sky, Ryan brings a rounded perspective. After starting his advertising career in Media Planning & Buying at Blue Sky, Ryan transitioned into an Operational role, then went on to work in Accounting at 22squared. There he supervised client billing & payables while working across department teams to provide staff planning and business insights.  

Ryan is an SHRM Senior Certified Professional, with a particular passion in the Human Resources part of Operations. He views helping employees reach their potential as the most rewarding part of the job.

When he isn’t rearranging the office, giving advice, or grilling, you can find him messing around in his yard planting and gardening or traveling the country following Dead & Company with his wife. He is an avid sports fan with loyalties to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Manchester United, and the Tennessee Vols – GBO!
