Ryan Getchell

At Purple, Ryan both leads and supports internal teams in the development of strategic campaigns for industry-leading clients in the healthcare and consumer goods sectors. Prior to joining the firm, Ryan worked in leadership roles with state and federal political campaigns, most recently as the Finance & Political Director for a 2018 Congressional race for Massachusetts’ 9thDistrict. Prior to his political work, he was an analyst for a growth-stage fintech startup in the private equity and venture capital space. Ryan graduated magna cum laude from Bentley University with a degree in Economics-Finance. 

“Purple operates with ambitious, self-set goals and the highest work product standards. That drives people to punch above their weight-class – to contribute more than is asked. That’s essential to the success of startups and political campaigns, and so I see that reflected in how we work at Purple, too.” 

“Purple’s unique client service model has helped build long-term client relationships. Delivering on client needs involves understanding that history as you address new and evolving challenges. It takes the willingness and ability to process, contextualize and absorb a great deal of information.”

“I’m not sure if authenticity is truly what I remember most in people or what I value most. My dad was always unapologetically himself, no matter the situation. I respect that trait so much. Still working on it myself.”
