Ryan Whiting is a project manager here at Royalty. He's been with the company for just over two years now and he has been an integral part of our team. He has a great sense of humour and really loves baseball.
Here are Ryan's four questions so you can get to know him a bit better:
Why do you do what you do?
I originally went to school to be a cabinetmaker at Humber College and the job prospects weren't exactly what I was looking for so I went to George Brown for Construction Engineering. I learned that being a project manager was the best route for me to take after school so here I am.
I love the decision making aspects of my job, the difference each day brings, and the interactions I get to make with so many people.
How long have you been doing what you do?
I have been a project manager at Royalty for two years now. Previously was a project coordinator for three years at another company.
What are your thoughts on DIY 30-minute reno shows?
Those shows I tell ya, they give some people in our lives a little too much hopes and dreams. The transformations are pretty cool, but the realistic timelines and budgets are a little off.
What's your favourite thing about baseball season?
Baseball season is my forever love and passion. I love everything about baseball season, from the warm weather, to going to games, to a few adult beverages and enjoying times with friends at the game.
I still play baseball every weekend and hope I can play for a few more years at a competitive level. I don't ever leave work early or watch the game on my phone at work haha ;).
