Ryan Tognazzini

Managing Director

Ryan originally joined SBI in 2010 as one of the first ten employees.  During his initial tour with SBI he helped launch a dedicated Private Equity Practice at the beginning of 2015, which today serves over 40 PE firms. Ryan is highly sought after by clients for his executive problem solving skills in the areas of go-to-market and revenue health.  Executives, PE operating teams, and deal teams look to Ryan for advice, and rely on his ability to drive positive outcomes through execution.  He has a serial track record of success with his clients.

Ryan previously spent nine years in sales and operations at Cintas, serving as the GM for the San Francisco branch. In 2016 Ryan left SBI for a CEO position at an enterprise software company, where he successfully transformed the business from 30% to 80% recurring revenue within four years on its way to an exit.
