Meet Ryan

Neiswender has been a significant contributor to the United States men’s national wheelchair basketball team. His exceptional skill and determination were showcased at The Paralympic Games in Tokyo, where he helped his team to achieve a gold medal. He further cemented his status as an elite player by winning another gold medal at the 2022 Wheelchair Basketball World Championships.

For Neiswender, these victories are not merely personal achievements; they give him a voice to raise awareness about people with disabilities. Diagnosed at birth with the congenital disorder arthrogryposis, Neiswender’s success is a demonstration of his resilience and determination. His accomplishments serve as an inspiration to others facing similar challenges.

Off the court, Neiswender has returned to his role at Visa, where he holds a significant position as the Digital Partnerships Sr. Manager. Through his achievements in both sport and business, Ryan Neiswender embodies the spirit of perseverance and dedication.
