Ryan Rejoins AmericasMart as CFO

ATLANTA-Jack Ryan returns to AmericasMart as acting chief financial officer.

Ryan will direct all AMC financial operations and will help to represent AMC's interests across the financial community at large. He rejoins AMC following his 2001 retirement from its presidency, which he held from 1994. A financial industry veteran, he has more than 22 years with the AMC-affiliated Portman Companies.

Ryan's appointment signals continuing senior management team strength and advancement in the company's 50th-anniversary year, according to Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., president and chief operating officer of AmericasMart Atlanta and its AMC, Inc. parent entity.

"Jack's leadership, particularly during the creation and early development of AmericasMart, was critical to our initial successes in building market share and brand equity," Portman said. "As his direct report, I learned much from Jack then and will continue to gain from his expertise." Portman was appointed AMC president and chief operating officer at Ryan's retirement.
