DEDICATION. QUALITY. PASSION. LEGACY.

In 1990, Dan Ryan founded Dan Ryan Builders in Mt. Airy, Maryland.  Dan was born into a legacy of homebuilding.  His uncle, Ed Ryan started Ryan Homes in the 1940’s.  Dan’s father, Jim Ryan, was the founder of Ryland Homes in the 1960’s.  After building nearly 17,000 homes for families across the Mid-Atlantic region Mr. Ryan partnered with Sumitomo Forestry America.  Since this partnership in 2016, the Dan Ryan Builders brand and the corporate entity, DRB Group, have grown significantly.  Mr. Ryan retired in 2019. DRB Group is now led by CEO, Ronny Salameh.  Mr. Salameh was chief operating officer for a decade before assuming the chief executive officer role. DRB Group now has four building brands, Dan Ryan Builders being the flagship.  Dan Ryan Builders has built nearly 23,000 homes for families in seven states and fifteen metro markets.
