Product-led Fractional CTO

On the Web

With 20 years of experience developing for the web, eight of those years being as a CTO, Ryan Townsend has driven ecommerce growth for his clients measured in the hundreds of millions and now operates a Fractional CTO consultancy under his brand, TWNSND

He cares deeply about user experience, particularly web performance, and his pragmatic outlook means that — on the rare occasion that he does wear a shirt — his sleeves stay firmly rolled up: Even as an exec, he enjoys getting into the thick of things with product managers and developers. 

Outside of the office, you’ll usually find him in the gym, recording video content for Lessons of a CTO and trying not to get too many more points on his driving licence.
