Ryan Howard

B. J. Novak

Ryan Howard is credited as having one of the most storied journeys in Dunder Mifflin corporate history. He joined the Dunder Mifflin Scranton branch in 2004 as a temporary employee before being promoted as a full-time member of the sales staff. After pursuing his MBA at the University of Scranton's Kania School of Business, Howard was chosen to replace Jan Levinson-Gould as the youngest Vice President of Northeast Sales in Dunder Mifflin history at the Corporate Offices in Manhattan. After the infamous Dunder Mifflin Infinity scandal and his subsequent arrest, Howard was removed from his role and joined the Michael Scott Paper Company alongside Pam Beesly. Upon merging with Dunder Mifflin, Howard was welcomed back into the Dunder Mifflin family at the Scranton Branch where he once again served under his mentor, Michael Scott. Thanks to Ryan Howard, all Dunder Mifflin Regional Offices now adhere to a strict “No Cheesy Pita” policy in order to avoid any fires or fire-related incidents.

After returning to Scranton, Ryan began focusing on his many other entrepreneurial pursuits, including his startup company, WUPHF.com and a line of salsas and pestos. Howard is mentioned extensively in human resources files in connection to Kelly Kapoor.
