The leadership team

Meet our mentors and matchmakers, coaches and collaborators, corporate veterans and finance whizzes. An adaptable and friendly group, the senior leaders at RoseRyan wear a variety of hats to hire the best, inspire our gurus and keep our clients happy. Kathy and the rest of the leadership team have the broad, deep experience (from years at the Big 4, Fortune 100 companies, as well as many startups) that clients really trust.

Kathleen Ryan, CEO & CFO

Kathy started RoseRyan on a mission to let highly savvy finance pros combine challenging assignments with a flexible work/life balance—and the firm has grown beyond her wildest dreams.

Kathy was director of finance at Quantum and tax manager at Price Waterhouse before co-founding RoseRyan in 1993 with Sue Macias. In addition to management expertise, her skills include general and cost accounting;  tax and SEC reporting; forecasting, budgeting and planning; business finance; and systems planning and implementation. She has served as CFO for over 50 emerging growth companies. And she’s known for fostering innovation, having nurtured the development of RoseRyan’s scheduling, timesheet and billing management app, which was recently spun out as a separate company called Bizinta.

Her leadership has been widely recognized. San Francisco Business Times named Kathy as an influential woman in Bay Area business in 2015. She’s twice made Accounting Today’s national listing of the sector’s top 10 leaders, known as the Managing Partner Elite. And in 2012, the San Jose/Silicon Valley Business Journal named her one of the most influential women in Silicon Valley. Formerly a Big Four CPA, Kathy holds a BS in accounting from Santa Clara University. A founding member of FINACA, an association of similar consulting firms across the country, Kathy also serves the finance committee at St. Michael’s Church in Livermore. Kathy loves golf, needlepoint and (her guilty pleasure) romance novels.

Maureen Ryan, Vice President

Maureen Ryan knows business from all the angles. Her career has been a 20+ year journey through positions in engineering, sales, marketing, operations and, with RoseRyan, the glamorous world of finance.

Maureen joined RoseRyan in 2000 to spearhead business development. Before that, she was an account executive with Nortel Networks, marketing manager at Bay Networks and sales operations manager at Quantum Corp. As engineering program manager at General Dynamics, she was responsible for landing a $20 million government contract for the development of a major missile system.

Maureen holds a BS in aeronautics from San Jose State University and an MBA from San Diego State University. Her passion is the relentless pursuit of equal rights for women.

Pat Voll, Vice President

Pat provides strategic guidance into several practice areas at RoseRyan, including corporate governance, strategic projects and operational accounting. In addition, she manages multiple client relationships, develops new solutions for the firm, oversees strategic and corporate culture programs, and provides thought leadership on corporate governance and transaction topics in the press and media.

Pat has worked in various financial management roles with primarily mid-size, public, technology companies as CFO, vice president of finance and controller. She also worked with Price Waterhouse for five years as an auditor.

Pat does a lot of things well, including revenue recognition, SEC and management reporting, mergers and acquisitions, SOX compliance and risk management, and plain old nuts-and-bolts accounting, to name a few. Pat is a former Big 4 CPA, CGMA and holds a BS in accounting from San Jose State University.

David Roberson, Vice President

He’s guiding our efforts to help cannabis companies in all segments (growers, labs, manufacturing, retail) professionalize their finance operations.

He leads large, complex finance teams that bring PE portfolio companies through major transitions such as acquisitions and divestitures.

Working with RoseRyan in 2018, David led the large finance team that provided transitional services for the Symantec-Digicert divestiture.

Prior to joining RoseRyan, he spent 6 years as an Advisor to tech companies, leading major projects in the areas of finance, strategy, due diligence, capital structure, corporate governance, sales and human resources.

David also served as a senior vice president for Hewlett-Packard Co. Before HP, he was president and CEO at Hitachi Data Systems, where he has previously held the titles of COO, CFO, CIO and general counsel. He has served as a director of 12 companies including Brocade, Quantum, IGT, Spansion and IDT.

David received a BA from the University of California at Irvine and a JD from Golden Gate University School of Law. He studied financial management at Harvard Business School. In his spare time, David mentors a diverse group of people in various disciplines from recent college graduates to CEOs.

Stephen Ambler, Vice President

Stephen Ambler is a serial CFO who oversees our CFO practice, and assists with recruiting and learning and development at the firm. He also provides CFO services at fast-moving tech companies in and around the Bay Area.

Michelle is our Talent Manager at RoseRyan and focuses on recruiting senior level finance and accounting individuals to the firm.  She has more than 20 years of experience in sales and marketing management, business development and recruiting.  She’s constantly engaging with finance and accounting pros with strong technical skills, and who also possess the ‘soft skills’ to seamlessly meld into the corporate cultures and team spirit of our clients. She knows the ins and outs of working with CFOs, Controllers, SEC Reporting managers, SOX testing and Project Management gurus, Technical Accounting aces, and Revenue Recognition wizards, just to name a few.

Prior to RoseRyan, Inc., Michelle was a Recruiter at a direct hire placement firm specializing in accounting and finance. She holds a B.S degree in Business Administration (Marketing) from California State University Chico.

Before joining RoseRyan in 2008, Chris was a partner at Computer Sciences Corp., where he focused on providing strategy and technology consulting for Fortune 1000 clients; worked with startups at Lante, and held business development and management positions with MCI (now Verizon).

Chris has a BA in marketing from Creighton University. He is an active youth soccer and basketball coach (as if Silicon Valley high tech wasn’t already heart-pumping enough).

Missy Manriquez, Talent Manager

Missy holds the Talent roles of Scheduler, Recruiter, and Head of Learning & Development. As the Scheduler, she is responsible for the complex task of scheduling consultants for client engagements. It’s an intricate matching process of technical skills, soft skills and cultural fit to meet our clients’ precise requests for each assignment. She also focuses on recruiting senior level finance and accounting individuals to the firm. In addition, she drives forward the learning and development initiatives which are a combination of live, online and third party training experiences.

Prior to RoseRyan, she spent 14 years at Deloitte matching executive talent with marketplace hiring needs. She has a BA degree in Child Development from California State University, Chico, and a MA degree in Interdisciplinary Education from Santa Clara University.

Matt Lentzner, Software Engineering & IT

Matt has worked at RoseRyan since 2005 and oversees our overall technology strategy. He also heads up Bizinta, our internally developed scheduling, timesheet and billing management application, which spun out as its own company.

Previous to RoseRyan, Matt spent 5 years as an independent software developer and IT consultant working for companies such as Clorox, RoseRyan, Lightbridge and others. Prior to that, he worked at Clorox for 6 years in various software development and technical support roles.

Matt has a B.S. in physics from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, with a minor in Japanese. After graduation, Matt spent 8 years as an infantry officer in a reserve drill sergeant unit, making sure basic training lives up to its name.

He is a published authority on the physics and biomechanics of baseball and writes and speaks on this topic at sabermetric conventions. Needless to say, he’s a fan of Moneyball, Billy Beane, and the Athletics. An avid physical trainer, he hosts friends for weekend Crossfit-style workouts, practices Kung Fu combatives at the local Shaolin temple school, and leads the RoseRyan kettlebells classes to keep his teammates in shape.

Eve Murto, Director

Eve Murto leads the charge for RoseRyan’s marketing efforts, including PR, social media, integrated campaigns, web marketing, email, lead generation, thought leadership and partner programs.

Before joining RoseRyan in 2011, she put her marketing chops to work for many Silicon Valley startups and mid-sized companies, including stints at Mozilla, CollabNet, Telseon and Questra. Prior to that, she worked three years at Sun Microsystems, with roles in strategy and global programs, and before that nine years at Apple in the USA sales and marketing group.  She earned her MBA in finance from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, where she also earned a MA in International Studies.  She has a BA in French from Wellesley and loved her junior year studying in France.  She loves skiing, hiking and photography in her spare time.

Chris Ludwig, Director

Christopher is a director at RoseRyan and has more than 20 years of experience in internal audit, Sarbanes-Oxley 404 compliance and corporate finance. He has led significant compliance efforts in large, public companies as well as “year one” efforts in pre-IPO startups.
