Meet The Team | Ryan Nankivel

Join us in welcoming one of our newest team members at Casey Peterson, LTD, Ryan Nankivel. He joined us at the end of last October as a process enhancement specialist.

Ryan fills a hybrid role for our firm. His background is in process analysis and enhancement, as well as a Power Platform developer for process automation. For our clients and us, Ryan looks for ways to adapt manual steps in any process and automate them.

While earning his general engineering degree from the U.S Air Force Academy, Ryan’s role as an integration engineer on the satellite launch and control network sparked his interest in process management.

In the 25 years since then, he’s been able to apply and hone his Six Sigma, Lean, Agile, and Project Management skills in various companies and industries.

In his free time, Ryan enjoys strategic thinking video games. His current interest is Final Fantasy XIV. He also enjoys fishing and has dabbled in crafting his own fishing rods. Ryan recently obtained a 3-D printer and is exploring that as a hobby. And if all that wasn’t enough, he’s also attempting to teach himself Japanese.

DON'T LIKE NUMBERS? WE DO.
