Since forming CMM on the basis of serving as a marketing agency for NASCAR's teams, drivers, and broadcasters, he diversified his client roster outside of Motorsports where there has been a great amount of success. By not only focusing on Motorsports, CMM has grown tremendously over their short time in operation. Bringing in Hollywood and Media components, CMM can offer activation for their sponsors in ways other marketing agencies cannot.

CMM handles not only traditional Motorsports, but has gone into managing clients from X-Games athletes to television and film talent. Producing events in Hollywood, and even putting on concerts. They work within Sports Media, Technology, Exploration, Music, and even the Automotive industry. Many of CMM's projects cannot be listed on their Client roster due to Confidentiality Agreements. CMM currently is working on projects that will change the face of cities forever, creating worldwide news media for their clients historically.

CMM not only acts as a Marketing Company but also as a Sports & Entertainment Company as well. CMM acts as an Agent and full Management for many of their Clients. CMM has successfully brought sponsorship opportunities to their Clients over the years. In film production, CMM has Rick Bieber, former President of HBO Pictures, Harmony Pictures, Fox West Pictures, and Stonebridge Entertainment, which Rick formed with Michael Douglas.

Ryan served as a Co-Producer on the film. The film released in select theaters on March 25th, 2011 and released on DVD through 20th Century Fox on August 30th, 2011.

Ryan brought in the US Virgin Islands Department of Tourism to integrate at the end of "Sons of the Fallen" to announce the filming of "Daughters of Courage". Ryan raised funding to film "Daughters of Courage" where he was instrumental as an Executive Producer creating the same type of programming for television that they had done previously with "Sons of the Fallen".
