Ryan Gilligan

Sr. Practice Director | IT Search

Ryan Gilligan leads our Information Technology Executive Search division at Versique. Ryan joined our team with more than ten years of professional recruiting experience, with the majority focused on IT recruiting. His experience and success in sourcing and placing IT leaders from management to C-suite levels with publicly traded, private, and start-up clients is unparalleled in the industry, and his diverse background and vast expertise delivers unrivaled results to his clients.

Before joining Versique, Ryan spent three years with Korn Ferry in New York City and Chicago as part of their Global Technology Officers Practice, executing executive-level technology searches for Fortune 1,000 companies. Prior to Korn Ferry, he spent a year with Amazon helping to build out their newly formed Minneapolis office while also recruiting for positions in Seattle at Amazon’s headquarters and in Boston for their Robotics division. Prior to Amazon, he spent six years with Robert Half’s technology team both as a recruiter, as well as a leader of a team of 12 full-desk recruiters.

When not working, Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife Lindsay and their two kids Abby and Henry. He enjoys being active—playing golf, running, family bike rides, and other sports with his kids, too. He also loves spending time on the lake.
