Ryan McBride, Senior Operations Manager, joined VDC Recruiting Group in 2018. He ensures clients expectations are met, and candidates are placed in jobs where they can grow and prosper in their careers.
Ryan received a BA in Business, specializing in Mass Communication, from the University of Florida. After college, Ryan cut his teeth in sales prior to developing his career captaining and managing boats for owners throughout the southeastern United States and Bahamas. Ryan’s softer side showed when he took leave from the cut-throat sales and fishing world to teach special needs, elementary school aged children.
Returning to the ocean, Ryan founded McBride Marine Consulting LLC. Here, Ryan established intricate customer service and interpersonal skills throughout years of overseeing projects, teaching owners how to properly maintain and operate vessels, and leading tournament, fishing teams. Additionally, his skills competitively running vessels landed him appearances on nationally televised fishing shows and tournaments.
When not recruiting, Ryan spends most of his time on the water. Living in South Florida with his wife and two boys, he explores the ocean with family and friends. Fishing and freediving are how you will find him when he is not hunting down the next, perfect candidate.
