Ryan D. Hendley, Chief Executive Officer
Ryan is the chief executive officer of Pinnacle Staffing, Inc. and serves on the Board of Directors for the company which is headquartered in Greenville, SC.
Ryan, the eldest son of founder Dick Hendley holds a B.S. in Business from Gardner Webb and a Masters in PE from East Tennessee State University and upon graduation pursued a career as a small college football coach where he honed his skills as a leader and team builder. Ten years later the family business came calling and in 1983 he rejoined the family business and began a deliberate process of learning the business from the ground up. He has held all intermediate leadership positions to include VP of Operations and President. He assumed his current position as CEO of I H Services, Inc. in 1993 and Pinnacle Staffing, Inc. in 1996. It was Ryan's vision in the early 1990's to diversify the family business to include staffing services. In 1996 Ryan brought David Ballinger into the family business to bring this new staffing company to formation.
Ryan is well known throughout the company as a "people person" and strives to continue the culture and legacy that his father began back in 1955. Ryan has a deep passion and concern for the safety and well being of all of our 4000+ associates on the job and off. He has become the "face" of our "12 Steps to Zero" safety program and has made this the top priority for all companies within the family business. Ryan has also led all the companies within the family business on a long term strategy of "Delivering the Ultimate Customer Experience." This strategy has required the re-engineering of many of our processes, continuing to develop the leadership and management skills and integrating state of the art technology to insure we exceed our customers' expectations in both quality and performance.
Ryan proudly served as the President of the BSCAI (Building Services Contractors Association International) in 2003 and has also obtained the designation CBSE (Certified Building Executive) which is the highest certification in the industry.
