Ryan Firth

Ryan Firth grew up in a small town called Vero Beach, Florida, where the waters are crystal clear and flip flops are mandatory. He grew up in a family of entrepreneurs, where he learned the values of hard work, sacrifice, and the kind of work ethic one must possess in order to succeed. Ryan experienced his own accomplishment at an early age, becoming the Captain of the Vero Beach High School Wrestling Team where he went on to represent the state of Florida National Team. His Team Coach was none other then Wayne Ivey, Brevard County’s current Super-Star Sheriff.

After graduating from Florida Atlantic University with a Bachelors of Arts degree, Ryan went on to marry his beautiful wife Victoria, and began his career in the wholesale petroleum industry. Consistently building on the principals and dedication he had learned from his parents and their business ventures, Ryan was determined to perfect his trade and rise as an industry leader. In a short amount of time, he was able to steadily work his way up from a Retail Account Manager to the Director of Business Development, where he was responsible for growing the business by acquiring new customer contracts.

This role put Ryan in the spotlight as his name started to become widely known by others in the business. Ultimately he was recruited by Southeast Petro Distributors in 2014 to serve as their Director of Business Development. Again, Ryan accomplished a lot in a short time with the company. He, along with his amazing team, successfully attained the prestigious ranking of Regal Class Marketer for Southeast Petro, and serves as a Brand Champion with ExxonMobil to mention just a few achievements.

Ryan is representing Southeast Petro in the Dancing for the Space Coast Competition to raise money for Crosswinds Youth Services, Space Coast Field of Dreams, Brevard County community theater organizations and the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Charity. The owners of Southeast Petro cultivate a culture within their company of giving back to the community, and Ryan supports that message as well. Please help make this event a success by donating whatever you can to support these local organizations.
