Ryan Smith

Owner & President

Ryan Smith is the owner and president of Grimsley’s Inc., a janitorial supply company based in Stillwater, Oklahoma with customers throughout the state of Oklahoma. Ryan has worked for Grimsley’s since 1994, when he was hired as a part-time delivery driver. After Ryan graduated from Oklahoma State University in 1999 with a civil engineering degree, he realized that his true passion resided with the business world. Temporarily discarding his formal training, he began working as the General Manager for Grimsley’s in 1999 to determine if running a business was truly his desire. Finding it fulfilling, Ryan bought the business in 2004. Many years later, he is still enjoying the many facets of operating an independent business. Ryan currently employs 24 people, mostly from the Stillwater area.

Ryan Smith was born in Oklahoma City in 1976. Because Ryan’s father was in the Navy for 20 years, Ryan spent six years in Japan, six years in Indiana and six years in Oklahoma City where he completed high school. That is where Ryan met Ashley, dating her almost exclusively until they were married during college in 1998. He has two daughters, Kaylee, 16, and Grace, 10 and two sons, Cannon, 13 and Deacon 9.

Ryan’s passions include mission work, community service projects and power tools. Ryan went on his first mission trip in Spring 2006, where he discovered his desire to serve. He has since traveled to many places across the world, completing dozens of trips. Ryan serves on the Global Missions Committee at Sunnybrook Christian Church, where his entire family is very active. Ryan also serves as a board member on several local non-profit organizations.

I have been with Grimsley’s since January of 2000. In this time I have gained experience in just about every position at Grimsley’s. My current title of Office Coordinator gives me the chance to put all of that experience to good use everyday. I enjoy what I do and even more than that I enjoy coming to work everyday surrounded by people I consider friends and family! When I am not working I stay busy and exhausted having fun with my 2 kids! I love art, and when I have spare time I can be found creating something colorful!
