Ryan Sirianni strives for excellence in whatever he does. “It comes in many forms, whether it’s being a high performer in my career, volunteering countless hours for JCI to better our community, or just doing something knowing that I’m creating a community rich in support and opportunities.”
In his professional career with the Royal Bank of Canada (“RBC”), Ryan worked as a senior commercial lender for 9 years and is currently the Branch Manager in Oliver for the last two years. During which time he received recognition from RBC for awards for team collaboration, for top growth, for top commercial account manager and for leading the commercial team for top survey results.
In addition to his successful career in banking, Ryan is the loving husband to his wife and proud father of two young children, who provide him with the inspiration to continually strive for success. “My inspiration is my family. I want to provide them the best I possibly can whether it be financially, morally, in support or opportunities for them.”
Working in commercial lending, Ryan has come across many aspiring entrepreneurs and takes pride that he has had the opportunity of helping others succeed in their businesses. “An entrepreneur is someone who is a risk taker and willing to put it all on the line for the betterment of themselves, family and community… the greatest piece of advice I can give any entrepreneur is to do your research thoroughly, and if still convinced that is what you want to do, then build a strategic network or support group that will help you succeed.”
Ryan is also a long standing member of Junior Chamber International (“JCI”) where he has chaired numerous committees and events dedicated to giving back to the community and raising funds for various charitable causes. For his hard work and dedication, he has received numerous awards and recognition within JCI, culminating with the honour of a JCI senatorship, the highest honour JCI bestows.
Ryan’s involvement in JCI and in other community groups stems from his commitment to giving back to the community. “Community is where I live, work, and play. It is who we are, how we support our friends, family and neighbours. It is everything I do in any given day. Through chairing JCI events to raise money for the JCI kids camp, working for RBC and providing advice needed to help entrepreneurs be successful in achieving their dreams, supporting not for profits in their fundraising efforts, to attending community events with my family.”
