Ryan Schulke co-founded Fluent with long-time friend Matt Conlin. Running corporate vision and strategy through creativity and collaboration, Ryan ensures Fluent’s digital advertising solutions are both scalable and sustainable, while expanding its leadership in the digital marketing & media space.
Ryan is a Long Island, NY native, hailing from Huntington, NY. He attended St. John’s where he met Matt Conlin and they embarked on their first enterprise: selling mixtapes on campus. Both Ryan and Matt describe themselves as huge hip hop fans and brag that Fluent’s first publishing partners were leading mixtape websites. Before Fluent, Ryan and Matt worked at Innovation Ads and Clash Media, where they conceptualized the business and met some of their founding partners. In addition to Fluent, Ryan and his wife are passionate about giving back and have formed a family foundation committed to bettering the lives of children in challenging situations; a topic that is close to their hearts as they raise their two children.
