Gary Ryno, Treasurer, M4L Governing Board
Gary is a contract chief financial officer with www.MorganCFO.com. He wears many hats. In his 40-year career, Gary has deftly negotiated the roles of CFO, CEO and EVP in banking and finance. After successfully navigating his way from Yakima, Washington into the US Air Force, he turned his attention to earning a Bachelor of Arts degree from Central Washington University and a Certificate in Commercial Banking from the University of Washington — a native son done good. When he’s not elbow-deep in Excel spreadsheets or saving someone’s bottom line, he spends his time cycling, cooking, hiking and passionately studying world events: economic, humanistic and universal and its ultimate effect on the future of Sapiens.
