Ryan Kindle, a 2019 winner of the tED magazine “30 Under 35” award, died unexpectedly on November 6 at the age of 35. Ryan leaves behind two young children.
Ryan Kindle, Outside Sales/Account Manager at Becker Sales
Ryan worked in Outside Sales as an Account Manager for Becker Sales, which is based in Chicago.
Family and friends describe Ryan as a devoted father and a person who enjoyed being at his family’s lake house, hunting, tubing, boating and water skiing.
Ryan was unable to attend the NAED LEAD Conference last July to pick up his award in person, but on his nomination form, the person who nominated Ryan described him as someone who works at an incredibly fast pace, which leads to a lot of success. Ryan started in the industry in the warehouse of a small supply house, where he pulled orders and made job site deliveries. His claim to fame is the fact that he often could be seen sprinting from one meeting to the next at NEMRA events.
In addition to his tED magazine “30 Under 35” award, Ryan also earned four other salesperson of the year awards during his career from two different manufacturers.
