One day while Ryan Van Wagenen was working at Citi in the energy group based in Houston, he had a chance meeting with the group head at UBS. They hit it off well and they began to speak about a business development role that sounded pretty interesting. After a few months of developing a relationship with this group head, Ryan decided to make the move over to UBS and joined the group in a Vice President role.
Ryan worked at UBS for 2+ years in Houston and was responsible for sourcing investment banking and capital markets deals and assisting with private wealth on-boarding. This was a great part of his career as he was able to interface with many different executives and management teams primarily focused in the energy sector.
