Barb Ryan, Manager, Business Development

As the Sales Manager for Bromelkamp Company, Barb ensures that our current and prospective clients understand how our software can work for them.

She has worked with the company for more than 15 years initially in strategic planning and products. She joined our sales team in the summer of 2018.  Barb holds a bachelor's degree in Communication Studies from the University of Iowa. She has had a varied career-- including positions in sales, product development, account management and clients services in a Fortune 100 company, a local non-profit, and a small family-run organization. For 15 years, she ran an independent consulting practice helping owner-run businesses drive strategic change. She has served on several nonprofit boards, and is a founding board member of Africa Classroom Connection with company President, Henry Bromelkamp.

When Barb isn’t working you’ll find her out in the woods camping or hiking or cross-country skiing. She often takes community ed classes like guitar lessons, bread baking, improv, and drawing. When she isn't doing any of that, she's reading a great biography, or being “Cool Aunt Barb” to eight fabulous nieces and nephews.
