Ryan Kanot

Ryan is a passionate and engaged technical professional. He holds BS degrees in Chemical Engineering and Engineering Management from the University of Arizona and an Executive MBA from the Quantic School of Business and Technology. He has served in a wide variety of roles in engineering, operations and executive positions. One of his specialties is being able to communicate complex technical and strategic matters clearly from the wrench turners who "make it happen" to the board room. Ryan has spent 15 years working in the energy industry. The last several years he has been working on the energy transition as we reduce the carbon intensity of our global economy. He also co-founded a craft spirits distillery (Quantum Spirits) and has been running that since 2017. He is an avid endurance sports enthusiast and (mostly-retired) triathlete. Right now he mostly chases his 3 year old around.
