When people first meet Christina, there are a few things they notice immediately: she’s passionate about what she does, she’s highly curious and she cares. As Hartman’s first employee, for nearly a decade she has diligently worked to change how many of the top executives in the nation’s capital and in the Baltimore metropolitan region perceive technology — from that of a “necessary evil” to one of the greatest underutilized sources for revenue growth, strategic insight and competitive advantage.
“Technology saturates every aspect of business — from constant regulatory changes to a shift in customer expectations. We’ve rapidly moved from seeing technology play a support role to one that allows us to inform every single business decision.” -Christina Ryan
To Christina, collaboration is the key to success. Since technology catalyzes change at an incredibly rapid pace, she believes that Hartman’s executive level subject experts who deeply understand unique industry challenges are true game-changers for the C-Suite. An advocate for helping executives navigate the intersection of technology and business, her greatest satisfaction comes from connecting business leaders with Hartman advisors who can help them reach their strategic goals. “It’s a whole new game,” she says. “Executives can rely on our trusted advisors to change the game with them and for them.”
Outside of the office, Christina enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants and spending time with family. She is an active volunteer in her community and serves as a mentor to other young professionals.
