Eric Ryan

Co-Founder & CEO


Eric makes soap. Really nice smelling soap that's non-toxic and good for the planet. It’s really beautiful, too. He and his high school buddy Adam started method in 2001 and have since built it into a global industry leader for both design and sustainability.

Most recently Eric has shifted from soap maker to pill pusher with the launch of OLLY a new start-up with the goal of disrupting the nutritional supplement category. Eric has been named an eco-leader by Vanity Fair, an eco-revolutionary by Time Magazine, PETA's Person of the Year, a recipient of the Clinton Global Citizen Award and was named to Fortune’s 40 under 40. Sadly he is now over 40.
