Brendan Ryan

Brendan started his career as a research scientist in 1995 before moving into banking and finance whilst living and working in the UK. Upon returning to New Zealand, Brendan continued in banking joining the prestigious ANZ global leadership programme. Brendan then accepted a strategic role and was responsible for the implementation of one of his own projects. The runaway success of this project saw him implement the same project into the Australian market in 2002, again achieving considerable success.

Brendan continued with ANZ in several roles including that of Manager of Operations for the Pacific Region. In 2011 Brendan undertook a career change and joined a large scientific consulting firm where he was responsible for restructuring the company. A year later he successfully established his own management consulting business.

Brendan joined the dVT Group in 2014 as a consultant and in 2017 became Director of dVT Strategy helping business owners with strategies to improve and grow their business.

Brendan’s hands on style sees him work with clients at their premises as and when it fits with the client’s schedule and budget.   He is easy to relate to and has the ability to speak your language.

He places a major focus on the ability to deliver real outcomes.  This means the return on investment of a consulting engagement with Brendan can be substantial, as evidenced by results he has achieved for his existing client base.

Brendan calls on his extensive network and out of the box thinking to provide real and tangible “value adds” usually well in excess of his fees.  His in depth knowledge of the available government services and grants are a perfect value adding approach with the majority of his client engagements being partially funded via government grants.
