About Ryan Weiss

Ryan Weiss is passionate about engaging with business leaders who are interested in influencing the world in a positive way, and has over 20 years of success leading teams, programs, and operations to drive business results and profitability.

His strong appreciation for diverse cultures was gained through extensive international work experience living in 3 countries, and leading global teams across more than 20 countries.

Founded & ran his first business from ages 15-20 to pay for college. That company is still growing today under his brother’s leadership serving thousands of clients in 50+ communities with a rapidly growing team.


Global executive for a $20B chemical company, living in 3 countries, & leading teams of 200+ people across the Americas, Europe, and Asia. He also served as the Global Technology Manager of a $500M chemical portfolio.


Founded EPS in 2016 to re engage his entrepreneurial spirit. The company has since grown to a global team serving clients across a wide variety of industries in North America (Construction, Services, Transportation, Manufacturing, and others) with a proprietary software platform, BPO team, and facilitation coaching team.


Ryan earned degrees in Chemistry (uiuc.edu) & Finance (ku.edu) creating a foundation for understanding across the technical, leadership, and financial needs of businesses to thrive. Throughout the course of his career, he created what is now known as the OPTICS™ System to enable companies to align people & processes for accelerated performance. The OPTICS™ System has been designed as a simple way for leadership teams to align for improved performance.

He is currently writing his second book, which is scheduled for release in early 2024. The book will provide readers with the ability to understand your challenges through a new lens of clarity.
