Director of Finance
“All growth starts at the end of your comfort zone.”
Ricky joined the Real finance team in early 2019 after spending nearly three years working as a general ledger accountant at Luxury Retreats and through the startup’s acquisition by Airbnb. This experience opened his eyes to the new opportunities created by technology companies and drove him to learn more about the value creation they can bring to the market. Born and raised in Montreal, Ricky studied accounting at Concordia University and earned his CPA designation in 2017. He is excited to work at Real Ventures both because his role in finance is such an integral part of the firm, but also because working at Real Ventures and Notman House gives him front row seats to watch the high-calibre companies emerging from the burgeoning Montreal tech ecosystem. Ricky also loves watching and playing sports — hockey, football and baseball in particular. When he’s not working or playing, you’ll likely find him researching the next place he wants to travel to or experimenting with recipes.
