Inspired by Ethics and Integrity

Ryan Siurek, Controller & VP, Sprint Nextel

While accounting marked his road to success, Ryan Siurek finds his passion in promoting ethics and integrity in business. The 39-year-old signed on as Sprint Nextel's assistant controller in January 2009 and 10 months later was named controller of the $32.3 billion wireless communications company.

Siurek has also worked at Arthur Andersen and LyondellBasell Industries in such posts as senior manager of technical accounting, controller of European operations and director of risk management and global shared services. But it was his stint as one of four graduates selected for a year-long fellowship at the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) after he earned a master's in accounting at Texas A&M that planted him firmly in his chosen field.
