"The University of Warwick Science Park’s growth plans will involve several important financial decisions, and it is vital that the right strategy is employed at each of these junctures," he said.

"My experience in both private equity sales and general accounting means I am well-placed to give the best advice to the leadership team and ensure all avenues are explored when it comes to generating value for money.

"It’s lovely to be back near the University as well – I enjoyed my time there as a student, and the University as well as the Science Park are both excellent employers too," he added.

Ryan has enjoyed an extensive career in finance and auditing, including stints at Big Four firms Ernst & Young (now EY) and Deloitte. He has also provided financial advice in-house for range of companies during their sales to other businesses.

"I’m looking forward to playing my part in enabling the Science Park to hit its growth targets and to build further bridges with WMG, the wider University, and its diverse array of cutting-edge tenants as the Science Park expands," he said.

His appointment comes soon after the announcement of Victoria Lynch as head of commercial and John Roberts as head of property.

Mark Tock, chief operations officer at the University of Warwick Science Park, said: "Ryan’s broad financial experience in the private sector and connections within the University group make him an ideal addition to our senior team as Head of Finance.

"Ryan complements an already strong leadership team and is one of five recent appointments that will enable the Science Park to achieve its ambitious goals."
