Ryan Denehy started his first digital media company at age 17 producing and distributing action sports films. He sold that company to a startup at age 19, and helped get that company acquired by USA TODAY Sports in 2008. Ryan’s partnerships and M&A activity led USA TODAY Sports to become the 4th largest sports property online. In 2012 he departed with longtime collaborator Rudd Davis to co-found Swarm, a retail analytics and marketing platform. When he’s not working Ryan likes to travel, spend time with great people and listen to house music.
