About Us

Ryan Vear – our founder – has seen how many companies lack a values-based approach to business. His passion for electronics was always prevalent and he was the youngest student to graduate from Swinburne University, Melbourne.

After completing his certifications, he worked in the industry for a few years before deciding he wanted to make a difference in the service people were being offered. Ryan built up an effective, strong and growing business because he cared deeply about his clients.

Now, we carry that legacy forward with Ryve – and it shows with every client. We are committed to delivering value to our clients, on every job, every time. We take the extra steps to exceed your expectations.

And, at the end of the day, we hope you feel appreciated. Being a values-based company we consistently strive to deliver the highest level of customer service and amazing technology products.
