In this first feature, meet our Customer Service & Sales Assistant Manager, Ryan! You may have already been in contact with Ryan if you’ve called into our offices, or have gone on our website’s Live Chat.
How long have you been working, and what is your role at Viair?
I have been working since February 2013. I originally started in the warehouse in shipping and receiving and was moved to Customer Service & Sales, where I was then promoted to Customer Service & Sales Assistant Manager.
What’s in your driveway?
My daily driver is a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 2” leveling kit, Flowmaster exhaust, Gibson headers, and a Superchips Tuner. My wife’s daily driver is a bone stock 2007 Dodge Nitro. Our weekend cruising car is a 1950 Chevrolet 2 Door Fleetline with the stock inline 6 cylinder 235 C.I. engine, dual 12” glass pack mufflers and lowered 2” all around.
What’s your favorite food?
My favorite food is Smoked Brisket.
Do you have any pets?
Yes, 1 Siberian Husky and 1 Miniature Pincher and 2 Leopard Geckos.
Who are your sports teams?
San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
What’s your favorite activity to do on your time off?
BBQing and working on the 1950 Chevrolet. The Chevy has been repainted and lowered 2 inches all around. It will eventually be channeled and bagged with Viair Compressors as the heart of the air suspension system.
Do you have a favorite VIAIR product?
My personal preference is the compressor that I have used at least twice a week for the last couple of years, the 400P-Automatic Portable Compressor. I like this model in particular because of the speed of inflation and also the automatic feature, which helps when moving from tire to tire and to check tire pressure mid-fill since the automatic feature will turn the compressor off when the trigger is released on the inflation gun.
