Ryan Berens

Ryan BerensRyan brings a diverse background to his work in technology at the national office. An insatiable curiosity for all things led to many roles before Family Promise – market research, a stint at a Linux-based security company, among others. In 2013, though, he chose his path with care, finding work at a local nonprofit serving those in need. Inspired by the impact, but looking to apply his skills more strategically, he found Family Promise to focus his fascination with the intersection of data and the human condition.


After three years, he supports Affiliates using Salesforce, directs office IT infrastructure and database strategy, and looks ahead to the future to find tools that will enable more families to find a home. When not working, he fixes up his house with his wife, plays tennis (poorly), and absorbs the wonder and utter insanity of raising a two year-old.
