Ryan Beltran is the Co-Founder of Original Grain. His passion for consumer products, in particular men’s accessories, led him to Hong Kong in 2011 where he came up with the idea for Original Grain. Ryan’s mission was to become a leader in the watch category by differentiating the brand through sustainable materials that tell a story. Starting the company in 2013 with a Kickstarter campaign, Ryan has maintained a direct to consumer (DTC) first mentality while keeping customer engagement and brand appeal a top priority.
Outside of work Ryan enjoys golf, snowboarding, and keeping the mind sharp through daily meditation.
