Andy Ryan

Senior Client Partner

Financial Services, Digital & Scaleups

Andy is a Senior Client Partner at 6 Group. He leads 6 Group’s Swiss practice and is based in Zürich.

Andy brings significant functional and operational experience to 6 Group’s team, having spent the first part of his career working in front office wealth management roles, including for JP Morgan’s private banking desks in Geneva and New York. Feeling the pull of entrepreneurship, he left the financial world in 2011 to found a travel technology startup, growing his company to a team of 20 and a user base in over 150 countries.

While building a business he discovered his passion for talent and recruitment, so after winding down his company he joined UBS’s in-house recruitment team to gain a better understanding of the talent-related challenges faced by a large international business. Joining 6 Group in early 2019, his role enables him to bring together his hands-on business experience in both large corporates and scrappy startups, with his passion for identifying and solving challenges around talent and recruitment.

With a particular interest in HR strategy and board governance, Andy sits on the board of directors of a company in Argentina focused on promoting entrepreneurship and innovation in Latin America, as well as on the governing board of the International School of Geneva, the oldest and largest international school in the world.

Andy read Geography at Cambridge University.
