Ryan A. Baker

Director of Sales - BTRAC, MACS Secretary

Ryan Baker graduated from Minnesota State University in 1986 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, marketing, management and finance.  After college, he moved to Missouri to partner with a childhood friend to open bicycle retail stores in Jefferson City and Columbia, MO. Wanting to be closer to family, he and his family moved to southern Minnesota in 1994 where he began work at Eagle Engineering, a small HVAC systems manufacturer in Welcome, MN. Leaving Eagle Engineering, he accepted a position as division service manager of environmental products at Vermeer in Pella, Iowa in 1997.

Wishing to return to the off-road HVAC industry, he accepted a position as an OEM account manager with Red Dot Corporation in 1998. Ryan was promoted to the director of aftermarket sales for Red Dot Corporation in 2015, serving in this role until 2020. Ryan joined Sanz/Kenway in 2020 as VP-Sales and GM.  He recently joined BTRAC as their director of sales. Ryan notes, “I have been a MACS member since 2004, attending technical training events and also conducting numerous MACS training and EPA section 609 training classes throughout the years. Being a member of MACS has been a rewarding and positive experience allowing me to learn and also serve others in the industry.

My hobbies are spending time with family, tending our rural property in southern Minnesota, martial arts and study of military history. I have previously served as a three-term board of education member of the local school district and currently serve as a church president.
