Ryan Sherry

Manager, Programs at NSW Government

Ryan Sherry has worked in the human services and education sectors for the past 20 years, for government, non-profit and for-profit organisations.  

Most recently Ryan led on the implementation of the NSW Government’s Disability Sector Scale-Up program designed to assist businesses in NSW to maximise the economic opportunity from the rollout of the NDIS. Ryan has a strong interest in human services organisations who are market orientated, focused on placing the customer at the centred of what they do and how they roll. 

Ryan has earned a reputation for credibility as a trusted business partner. He is a professional with a balance of diplomacy, empathy, operational excellence and total commitment to working with customer centric organisations to build sustainable businesses. 

It is for these reasons (and not to mention, he is an all-round nice guy) that Ryan is a very valued and trusted member of the selection panel for the 2021 Australian Disability Service Awards. 

Ryan is happily married to Amanda and lives on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. In his spare time, you’ll find Ryan and Amanda enjoying the beaches and lots of weekend sport with their two sons, Ben and Liam.
