Nigel Ryan

Director, Marketing & Communications

Nigel Ryan started his professional life as a restaurateur in Tobago before migrating to New York to be with his now-wife, Bina. Nigel holds a Bachelor of Science in Communications from NYU, and a MBA. Nigel has been the Marketing Director at the Riverdale Y for 4 years, before which he was the Marketing and IT Manager at PacPlex, a popular Brooklyn rec-center. While at The Riverdale Y, Nigel envisioned and spearheaded the creation of the JCC Digital Co-op which allows JCCs to collaborate on shared software for best-in-class websites for the best price.
