Ryan earned his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Slippery Rock University, and his master’s in Business Administration in a year through an accelerated SRU program.

Future professional goals for Ryan include moving to the corporate side for marketing and merger design and implementation.

A variety of hobbies fill Ryan’s time. He considers himself a big gamer and spends time on Xbox and PC games when he has the free time.

Ryan also enjoys working on house projects and is a Star Wars and Marvel fan. In Venango County, he likes walking the trails and visiting various restaurants in the area. He particularly appreciates his drive up 62 along the Allegheny River because it reminds him of Oregon.

Welcome back to Pennsylvania, Ryan!

Matthew Slagle is a new FLEX member and an Inventory Accountant at Borchers Americas, Inc.

Matt grew up in Petrolia and went to Karns City High School, then attended Westminster College where he studied Accounting and International Business.

One reason Matt studied International Business is because of his desire to travel. He hopes to visit all seven continents, including Antarctica, and all 50 states. He also hopes to qualify and run the Boston Marathon. Traveling and running are two hobbies that are connected, as he hopes to travel and run marathons throughout the states and internationally.

Matt takes advantage of the many beautiful places to run in Venango County, one of his favorites being the trails along the Allegheny River. He also enjoys the delicious eats here, and often refuels at Leonardo’s or Trail’s to Ales after running.

Matt started at Borchers in this year, and finds fulfillment in his new job because of the people he works with.

“I get to work with a great group of hardworking and supportive individuals who share the same mindset of finding new ways to become efficient and effective as a team and organization,” he said. His team and the company at large also work to become more effective in their team goals and organizational outputs.

As Matt continues his career in Venango County, he also enjoys and explores the wonderful places, people, and food the area has to offer.
