Founder and CEO
Dan Ryan is more than a logo for Dan Ryan Builders and DRB Enterprises, Inc. His involvement in the operations of the multiple entities continues to guide the course of the companies’ successes. Dan’s Uncle Edward founded Ryan Homes and his father, Jim, founded Ryland Homes. Dan says, “Homebuilding, it’s in my blood, it’s what we Ryans do.” In 1990, Dan, already a successful businessman, left Ryan Homes and founded Dan Ryan Builders. Pioneering in markets untapped by the big public builders, Dan built his company into the well respected business it is today.
Dan is well known in the Frederick area not only for his homebuilding but for his philanthropic contributions. Each of the Dan Ryan Builder’s divisions gets involved locally in the schools, charities, associations and overall community. This grass roots approach to business has been welcomed in every area where we build and differentiates Dan Ryan Builders from the competition. Dan's commitment to being involved in the communities where he builds has landed him the prestigious Hearthstone Builder Humanitarian Award in May of 2015. Dan is a resident of Frederick County, Maryland where he is actively involved in the community today.
