Ryan Janas

I started my career in the automotive industry as a technician; after seven years of working as an individual contributor, I wanted more opportunity to work directly with customers. I moved to Bridgestone retail operations and ran individual stores in Hawaii, and San Diego for a few years before becoming an Education Business Partner for 143 stores in North Texas. In that role I was able to become a certified trainer for DiSC & Situational Leadership as well as others. I trained thousands of employees at all customer facing levels over the course of 3 years. In my last role at Bridgestone, I managed thirteen stores in Dallas, Texas as an Area Manager responsible for safety metrics, store staffing, and P&L performance. While working on my MBA at University of North Texas I decided to make a change. I started with Amazon as an Operations Manager in Northern California and after being promoted to Sr. Operations Manager I chose to accept an opportunity in Manchester, England. There I was able to learn new cultural norms in managing a workforce of over 1,200 people as well as earned the distinction of “Bar Raiser” given to the top 1% of interviewers who are then responsible for overseeing interviews, in and out of their own business units. During my time at Amazon I was able to be a part of hundreds of interviews as either a Bar Raiser, Hiring Manager or Panel interviewer. Through all of these roles working with people has been the most rewarding part, this is especially true when I am able to help someone through difficulty or advancement. Now I am working at VetProCentral in recruiting and operations process improvement.
