RYAN BIRD

ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE

Ryan is a fourth-year Sports Administration (SPAD) student at Laurentian University specializing in finance. As an Account Executive, Ryan contributes to Cosmos by assisting in acquiring new business opportunities, executing sales campaigns, and more. Since learning to skate at three years old and watching his first Leafs game, Ryan’s life has revolved around sports.

The decision to attend Laurentian University is one that has paid in full for Ryan over the last four years. The opportunity to combine his interest in business with his passion for sports made SPAD a no brainer.

Thanks to SPAD, Ryan has had several valuable experiences in the sports industry. He has published numerous sports articles for Ontario University Athletics, and volunteered at the NCAA Women’s Final Four in Tampa Florida to promote green initiatives in and around Amalie Arena on game days. Before the COVID outbreak, Ryan spent a month contributing to the in-game social media of the Sudbury Wolves and Five.

By competing in and following several different sports, Ryan built his desire to work in the world of sports. He has played hockey, baseball, soccer, tennis, and basketball just to name a few. Ryan’s greatest achievement in sports was goaltending for his high school hockey team who won their first ever AAA OFSAA medal.

Ryan is a huge hockey, basketball, and MMA fan and follows many other sports as well. His favourite pro teams are the Toronto Maple Leafs, Raptors, and Blue Jays. As a combat sports follower, his favourite fighters are Israel Adesanya, Valentina Shevchenko, and Tyson Fury.

The great opportunity to make a difference with a tight-knit, successful team with a long list of clientele made the Cosmos internship stand out from the rest. Ryan is looking forward to making an impact at Cosmos Sports and Entertainment.
