Chief Strategy Officer & Founder
Ryan Schulke hails from Huntington, NY – a bayside town in Long Island. Always an entrepreneur, he launched his first business endeavor with co-founder Matt Conlin while students at St. John’s: as hip-hop maestros selling mixtapes on campus. With a passion for all things non-status quo, he conceptualized Fluent with Matt while working at Innovation Ads and Clash Media. As a digital marketing trailblazer, Ryan has been recognized as an EY Entrepreneur of the Year and named to DMN’s 2018 40 Under 40 list. Outside of Fluent, Ryan and his wife are committed to bettering the lives of children in challenging situations; a topic that is close to their hearts as they raise their two children and is the basis of the Schulke Family Foundation.
