Ryan Everson has spent his life not just asking the question, “How can this be better?” He answers that question again and again by developing innovative digital marketing solutions.
Ryan’s roots are intertwined in the automotive industry. Growing up, his family owned three car dealerships, which he started working for at the ripe age of 13. His early work experience planted a seed of passion within Ryan, and he hit the ground running towards all things tech, marketing, and automotive.
Combining his passions with skills, Ryan started his own tech company that saw major success. He led his company to reach $1MM in revenue with three retail storefronts by the time he reached the age of 18.
When Ryan crossed paths with Garber Automotive Group, he found his career home. With the support of leadership behind him, Ryan spearheaded the creation of the company’s first-ever internal digital marketing agency. For over 10 years, Ryan has served as the Digital Marketing Director for Garber Automotive Group. Today, he leads an in-house marketing team of 14 talented team members who help lead digital marketing efforts for Garber and it’s entities, including: 64 rooftops nationwide (23 franchise and 41 sub-prime in seven states), a finance company with a $250 million portfolio, and an OHL hockey team.
Ryan went to Northwood University for Automotive Marketing & Management and was awarded the “40 Under 40” award by Automotive News in 2020. He lives in Flint, Michigan, with his wife Megan and their newborn daughter, Claire.
