A friend, a co-worker, a boss. There are many hats to be worn and as President of Finch Auto Group, Ryan wears them all well. Ryan supplies his staff with the infrastructure needed to succeed, and provides his management team with a clear vision of where the company is heading. Always wanting the best for his staff and customers, Ryan recognizes hard work and a job well done, and will always be there to help and care about their well-being.
Ryan attended the University of British Columbia on an athletic scholarship then returned to Ontario to attend the Ivey Business School at the University of Western Ontario. After graduating from university Ryan started full time in the car business and learned as much as he could from his colleagues and co-workers and started to formulate a plan to grow.
Involved with many local charities and organizations, Ryan learned from his father at a young age that supporting the community around you, the community that supports your businesses is the right thing to do on many levels. The Finch Auto Group takes community engagement very seriously and we have a full time person that handles and oversees all our charitable giving.
The last 10 years have been exciting to say the least, Ryan is especially proud of how well the Finch Auto Group managed thru the challenging business climate in 2009 and is currently enjoying the strong automobile economy in Ontario. Ryan has recently sold out of his interests in a number of dealerships around Ontario to focus on the core dealerships in London, Georgetown and Waterloo.
Ryan’s interests outside of work include golfing, hiking, time at the cottage, travelling and socializing with friends, Ryan always looks for inspiration in others and enjoys watching people get the most out of life and that inspires him to do the same. As much as Ryan loves the car business and business in general spending time with his son (Wyatt) and daughter (Georja) will always be his number one priority.

When he’s not at work, Rob loves spending time with his wife and their two daughters. He enjoys participating in many outdoor activities, including golfing and cycling. Rob is also a proud supporter of the Canadian Cancer Society, a cause that has always been close to his heart.
