Meet The Team
With 25+ years of experience, Ryan is a FRANCHISE FINANCE EXPERT. During his career, Ryan worked primarily for mid ticket, conventional, franchise lenders working with tier 1-3 qsr and casual dining concepts. This includes a deep tie within the Dunkin' brand. He was always the top producer for any bank he worked for due to his excellent skills in relationship building, unparalleled service and communication, aggressively seeking business, high retention of clientele, and ability to get deals funded.
Over the years Ryan became determined to overcome one of the biggest roadblocks in franchise financing: to obtain funding on bankable deals that were often turned away simply because the credit profile wasn't in line with the bank's credit parameters. Hence the dream of forming Linsky Capital, where he could ensure his clients get the benefit of access to multiple lenders to meet their specific financing needs regardless of loan type, concept, or size. This dream became a reality when Ryan formed Linsky Capital January 1st, 2019. Ryan is a very proud father of three (3) beautiful children named Alexa, Brinley, and Coby. Other than growing Linsky Capital, Ryan's other interests include spending quality time with his kids, family, girlfriend, and friends...including boating down the shore.

From start to finish, Alexa is there to support you throughout your financing journey and will help you meet your business goals.
Aside from work, Alexa loves spending her time down at the Jersey Shore with family and friends, as well as practicing yoga.
