Our Services

In 2018, LISA D. RYAN, LLC launched to provide human resource consulting services to family offices, family foundations and the wealth advisors that serve these organizations. While recruiting executives for these organizations over a 20-year period, Lisa realized that many of the family enterprises or boutique wealth advisors did not have a dedicated human resource professional, and at times, they had human resource needs outside of executive recruiting. With a deep understanding of these organizations, Lisa formed LISA D. RYAN, LLC to recruit exceptional executives and to develop and optimize existing talent to enhance organizational performance and attain goals.

LISA D. RYAN, LLC is unique in providing talent management through talent acquisition services to this market segment and in their commitment to aligning consultant and client interests. Additionally, Lisa is certified in the DISC/PIAV, the Hogan Assessment and the Leadership Versatility Index (LVI). The insights gained from the assessments can be helpful in candidate on-boarding, promoting successful integration, enhancing communication, developing executives and reviewing performance. These tools can help promote high performance and alignment between organizational talent and the overall business strategy.
