Since former Major League Baseball player Ryan E. Bowen transitioned into entrepreneurship, he has become a prominent figure in the business world. His venture into entrepreneurship started when he retired from professional baseball and co-founded Swift Mobility, a company specializing in custom wheelchairs and online medical equipment sales.
He also played roles at Bank One, J.P. Morgan Chase, and Comerica Bank where he actively managed a portfolio of businesses totaling over $30,000,000, according to a statement.
Bowen has continued to explore new frontiers and now has an interest in the first minority company to operate a stock exchange, Dream Exchange. He joins the mission as a Dream Exchange Ambassador.
“I am honored to join Dream Exchange as an Ambassador and to be part of a groundbreaking initiative that prioritizes diversity and fairness in the financial world. The potential for the Dream Exchange to create economic opportunities for minority-owned businesses and entrepreneurs is immense. This is a transformative moment, and I am excited to be a part of it,” said Bowen.
The founder and CEO of Dream Exchange, Joe Cecala, said in the statement that ambassadors do not only play an important role in advancing their mission but also represent an embodiment of the company’s values.
“Our Dream Exchange Ambassadors play a pivotal role in advancing our mission of fostering fairness and equity in the public capital markets. They represent the embodiment of our values and are crucial in spreading the word about our vision. Ryan Bowen’s dedication to making a difference and his entrepreneurial success perfectly align with our goals,” Cecala said.
Aside from managing companies, Bowen is also a motivational speaker, who shares his story of overcoming adversity with corporate leaders and the nation’s youth.
Bowen was drafted in the first round by the Houston Astros in 1986.
