AEGIS Hedging Solutions Appoints Ryan Vaile as EVP, Strategy and Corporate Development
The Woodlands, Texas, April 20, 2023 – AEGIS Hedging Solutions (“AEGIS” or “the Company”), a leader in technology and expertise for commodity and environmental markets, today announced the appointment of Ryan Vaile to the newly created position of Executive Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development. With over 25 years of experience in risk management, finance, and energy, Ryan will work with AEGIS’ customers, prospects, and executive team to assess new market entry strategies, corporate partnerships, and potential acquisitions.
Continued volatility in commodity, rate, and environmental markets puts increased pressure on companies whose profits are impacted when those risks are not managed. AEGIS provides technology and expertise to help companies manage their commodity prices and carbon exposures across energy, fuels, renewables, metals, and agricultural products with a simple goal: financial predictability.
"Throughout my past 18 years in the energy market, I have seen AEGIS emerge as the clear leader in commodity hedging and the compliance carbon market," said Vaile. "I look forward to working alongside Bryan and the team to extend these capabilities to new verticals and geographies, as well as to establish partnerships that will bring additional capabilities to our customers.” Prior to joining AEGIS, Ryan spent 10 years as a Partner with Phoenician Resources, a private investment vehicle focused on aggregating, operating and developing proven oil and gas assets in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Kansas. Ryan was responsible for their origination efforts to generate new business opportunities, acquisitions and establish market recognition. Ryan successfully helped build Phoenician into a well-known and respected aggregator of assets.
Earlier in his career, Ryan worked for Marathon Financial Group (MFG), a registered broker/dealer. Ryan’s role included compliance, as well as acting as principal and agent for conventional and unconventional upstream investments in the energy sector. His previous roles include Vice President of Sales at Icon Identity Solutions, where he participated in an organizational restructuring, redesign and ultimate sale of the company, and Vice President of Aon Corporation, where he partnered with C-level executives in the private equity, healthcare and construction industries to identify risk and develop customized risk management strategies. Ryan graduated from Miami University with a Bachelor of Business Administration.
"Ryan is a well-known name in the energy and private equity industries and has established himself as a strategic thinker who knows how to execute," said Bryan Sansbury, Chairman and CEO of AEGIS. "I am thrilled to have Ryan join at a time when the demand for sophisticated financial risk management solutions is growing in CFO offices across nearly every industry and geography.”
