Human Resources Director

Ryan joined Simonson’s as the HR Director in January of 2022 bringing his many successful years of team management and brand experience to the position.  He’s enjoys playing a key role in a career that advocates “taking care of yourself on the outside for it nurtures what’s on the inside”.  It’s a challenge he embraces with the same contagious enthusiasm he brings to every aspect of his professional and personal life

Ryan graduated from a local private college in 2006 with his bachelor’s in Business Management.  After college, he worked in the insurance industry to help grow small agencies using his magnanimous interpersonal skills to focus on client procurement and retention.  Ryan also spent time in the hospitality as the brand ambassador for large events and restaurant groups.  His unique skillset of identifying and resolving proficiency, quality and experience gaps is a great springboard for his launch into the beauty industry.

Originally from the NW suburbs, he now resides in NE Minneapolis with his partner Peter and their Bulldog Axl.  You can find him at the local parks walking Axl when he is not remodeling their “major fixer-upper” and expressing how he would rather be at his parent’s lake place “up north”.

Don’t be surprised if he flashes you a big smile and a wave when he’s out and about in our locations!
