The ManKind Project USA is proud to announce that Scott Ryder is moving to the next phase in his career.

We celebrate Scott as he completes his service as Finance Director of MKP USA. Scott has taken a role with a publicly traded development products company headquartered very close to his home in San Diego.

Scott now joins a circle of active and engaged former CFOs including Scott McGregor and Jon Levitt. All three of these men are committed to the continuing success of MKP USA – and will be here in the transition as we open the search for a new CFO.

The Finance Team; including our accounting and bookkeeping firm Ignite Spot, our full time Finance Manager Trevor Day, and the MKP USA Finance Committee including Treasurer Russell Kramp, Bob Oser, Ed Gurowitz, and Jon Levitt remain fully engaged. And with no shortage of thanks to Scott Ryder and his predecessor Scott McGregor, the finance infrastructure and systems are a “well-oiled machine.”

Ryder had this to say, “I’m proud of where we stand as an organization, on solid financial footing and poised for expansion; to add services and programs to grow the ManKind Project. MKP holds a special place in my heart, and I have been honored to serve for the past 19 months. I remain committed to our vision, I love the work we do. I will help ensure a smooth transition.”

We wish Scott the best in his new position!
