Click-worthy CEO: Get to know MyFastPC Founder Ryan Grover


Get to know Ryan Grover, founder and CEO of MyFastPC who is affectionately known as “El Jefe” around the office.

MyFastPC is a godsend for anyone staring at the “spinning wheel of death” on their computer screen. The remote desktop support company helps users solve their technical difficulty woes without having to unplug and haul their computer into a repair shop. (Bless you, Ryan Grover.) The Vineyard resident loves reading (he currently has five books in rotation), seeing his employees progress and adapt, and Oteo lunch meetings.

    Ryan is the most down-to-earth CEO that you will ever meet! He is very kind and extremely good at what he does! What a rock-star! (I know this sounds like an oxymoron . . .) He is an example to me. Thank you!
