It is with great pleasure that CD Companies congratulates Mechanical Designer, Ryan Boatright on earning his MBA with an emphasis in project management!

Ryan earned his MBA from Maryville University in April 2022. He has been with CD Cos since July 2019 and has been a key member of our M/E 1 Division. His favorite projects include Springfield Clinic-Pediatric Clinic and Trane – Normandy School District. Outside of work and school Ryan is also a member of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), Engineers Club of St. Louis, and Building Enclosure Council of St. Louis (BEC).

When asked how it feels to graduate with his MBA and what he hopes it means for him professionally Ryan tells us, “It allows me to understand the business side of this industry. I know the technical side of what I do and if I do not know something, I can understand and learn the new information. The MBA allows me to better learn the business side. I can understand why things happen or why decisions may be made in regards to a business setting. It helps set me up for future ownership and leadership opportunities.”

In his free time Ryan enjoys playing with his dogs, watching or playing hockey, and spending time with his fiancé cooking and baking.

Congratulation Ryan! We’re all so proud of you and we’re glad to have you on our team!
