Special Thanks to the 2018 Light The Night Executive Leadership Committee
Corporate Walk Chair
Dan Ryan, Banking and Capital Markets Leader
Dan, a Partner at PwC, advises the firm’s largest global financial services clients on matters ranging from business strategy to governance, risk and regulation. He has led large global projects for major clients including insurers, banks and asset managers. Dan is often called upon by the boards of directors and management of major financial institutions to consult on critical issues. He began his career at PwC as an auditor focused on serving large global financial services clients. Dan rejoined PwC's Advisory Practice in 2006 after serving as CFO for a major investment bank and later he found and then sold his own trading technology firm.
In 2017, Dan was diagnosed with both blood and brain cancer and has been battling them through the different difficult treatments required. Throughout this journey, Dan has continued to maintain his dedication to his career thanks to the unwavering support of his family and PwC colleagues. Dan was nominated by LLS Board Member, Rich Reynolds (PwC), as a premiere candidate for the 2018 Light The Night Corporate Walk Chair leadership role because of his willingness to share his personal story as a way to spread awareness and inspire others. Gratefully, Dan accepted this role and hopes that his leadership will inspire others to raise money to fund research for cures so that others may live productive and happy lives after a cancer diagnosis.
Dan has an MBA in finance from Columbia University and he is a certified public accountant in the State of New York. A frequent guest on CNBC and Bloomberg TV, Dan is often quoted in media such as the Financial Times, the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones.
The Executive Leadership Committee is a group of area professionals and volunteers who support the mission of LLS through fundraising initiatives, expanding corporate partnerships and planning special events. They are leaders and advocates for the Light The Night Walk.
