Life at PNC

Meet Our Employees

Ryan Smalley


Compliance Program Director Sr. 


 Pittsburgh    Joined PNC: 2011

PNC has provided me with opportunities multiple times throughout my career. My background might not have been an exact fit for the role, but it allowed me to grow and succeed.

I lead the Technology & Innovation Risk Management (TRM) and enterprise Business Continuity (BC) teams. TRM helps PNC Technology appropriately identify, assess, monitor and report against various risks – whether those risks deal with one of our third-party vendors, a technology system or even the procedures our employees use to perform their jobs. Our BC program helps the bank prepare, prevent and respond to significant disruptions.

I’m a member of PNC’s Corporate Diversity Council and the executive sponsor of Technology & Innovation’s Diversity & Inclusion group of volunteers. I was extremely fortunate to have joined just as we were establishing a Military employee business resource group (EBRG); that gave me firsthand insight into how the bank promotes engagement through inclusion.

I’m addicted to reading – anything from English literature to the back of a cereal box. I enjoy spending time at my cabin near the Pennsylvania-New York border and spend as many hours as possible in the outdoors with my kids (when they let me).

My career path has been an unusual one. I was a helicopter pilot who found himself in business school; who found himself doing management consulting; who found himself in technology; who found himself teaching at Carnegie Mellon University; who found himself in risk management.
