Former PayPal executive Angela Rittgers has joined Dallas-based Ryan, a global tax services and software provider, as senior vice president and chief marketing officer.
She will report to Ryan’s Global President and Chief Operating Officer Ginny B. Kissling and will serve as a member of the executive leadership team, overseeing the development, implementation, and execution of Ryan’s marketing and branding strategy, creative, global communications, and digital marketing.
“Angela is an accomplished marketer with strong experience guiding brand transformations. She brings the trifecta of business, technology, and marketing knowledge with an understanding of the power of storytelling to engage new and existing Ryan clients to deliver business results and unlock growth,” Kissling said in a statement. “I am thrilled to welcome her to the Ryan team and look forward to increasing market awareness of Ryan’s client successes and value under her leadership.”
Rittgers brings more than two decades of strategic and creative marketing experience in technology, telecommunications, and financial services, with extensive experience leading disruptive innovation and high-performing teams to deliver transformational growth, Ryan said.
Previously, she was global vice president of marketing for small and medium businesses at PayPal, where she oversaw all marketing efforts for 35 million merchants globally.
Before PayPal, she was senior vice president and general manager of Boost Mobile, leading the P&L, business transformation, and growth strategy for the business.
Rittgers also previously was the CMO at Virgin Mobile USA and held various marketing leadership roles across multiple telecommunications companies, overseeing brand strategy, performance marketing, media, advertising, and sponsorships.
“Ryan is at a pivotal moment in its strategic growth plan. I strongly believe in our services and software, the brand, and the Firm’s vision,” Rittgers said in a statement. “I could not be more excited to lead storytelling and marketing planning to increase our brand recognition, drive sales, and add value for both our internal teams and clients. I look forward to building and accelerating the brand’s momentum in the months and years to come in service of our clients.”
