Ryan Fyfe

With more than a decade’s worth of experience in web development and internet marketing, I’m passionate about building cloud-based products that redefine how businesses maximize their opportunities for success, improving employee job satisfaction along the way.

As the founder and CEO at Humanity.com and Shiftplanning.com, I’ve had the tremendous opportunity to build a business that to date serves more than half a million users across 87 countries. With a team exceeding 100 people and continually growing across 3 continents, I’m continuously seeking ways to foster an open, international culture that unites our offices around the globe.

Before turning my focus to technology I competed for Canada as a middle-distance runner (800m, 1500m), setting various provincial records and winning a National Title.

More broadly, Kaizen describes any kind of improvement, whether it is a one-time improvement, several improvements or a system of continuously unfolding improvements.
