Our People

Debbie Ryan

Debbie Ryan

Managing Director

Having worked across the public Sector for 20 years, then private sector delivering public services I apply a commercial lens to impactful businesses. Having worked with Big Society Capital to create projects that support VCSE growth across the impact arena moving into financial services was a natural career progression. Now, through Impact Group I support businesses right across the impact sector to grow in a sustainable way and evidence their credentials through impact accreditation. Helping business to demonstrate their commitment to ESG and the UN Sustainable Develop Goals makes them more attractive to the Impact Investor, and supports the triple bottom line!

Having started my career as a criminology student, I became interested in the positive impact that businesses can have on the lives of individuals, communities and our environment. Having the opportunity to encourage businesses to evaluate and evidence their social and environmental impact is hugely important to me, and working in the Sales and Marketing team enables me to do this.
