Olivia Pedersen

In Olivia’s dynamic career, she has emerged as a seasoned creative leader, seamlessly blending expertise in operations and design to create exceptional consumer experiences. Before joining Ryder Walker, she led the charge as the Chief Everything Officer at Sustaio, her climate tech startup. Here, she championed a consumer technology company focused on incentivizing individuals to reduce their home energy footprint. Equipped with a Master of Arts in Sustainable Design, her commitment to sustainable practices threads through her career.

Prior to her rollercoaster ride in climate tech, Olivia owned How Collaborative, a creative firm catering to a diverse range of direct-to-consumer client companies. Additionally, she has guided for national travel, whitewater rafting, and hiking volcanoes in Nicaragua.

The travel industry holds a special place in her heart, finding true magic in the experiences it unlocks for people. For Olivia, travel isn’t just a leisure activity; it’s a fundamental element in helping people better understand other cultures and points of view.

When not at Ryder-Walker she can be found wondering the high-alpine by foot or snowboard.
