This award recognizes the spirit of teamwork that Ryan personified, and it is presented annually to the Telgian Team Associate who best embodies his example. Ryan dedicated his life’s work to the fire protection industry, with a distinguished career spanning 29 years in a variety of capacities. He served with the San Diego Fire Department, as Assistant San Diego Fire Marshal, as a successful Fire Protection Consultant, and as Western Regional Director for TVA.

A true team player, Ryan was not only an exceptional motivator, he was also willing to teach others patiently, delighting in the success of others. As coach and mentor, he was a good listener, genuine, and kind. His work ethic was never self-serving. Instead, he was sincerely passionate about the fire protection, life safety and security industry, the success of the company, and the wellbeing of its people.

The 2021 Pat Ryan Team Spirit Award seeks to honor those Telgian associates who follow in Ryan’s footsteps. And, the list of past recipients of the Pat Ryan Team Spirit Award includes many of Telgian’s most highly respected associates.

The winner of the 2021 Pat Ryan Team Spirit Award will be announced at the company’s Annual General Meeting which will be held on May 5, 2021.
