Ryan Harwood is the CEO of PureWow, a digital media company that specializes in women’s lifestyle content. Harwood founded PureWow in 2010 after noticing a void in the digital landscape for the Upper Millennial and Gen X female. PureWow publishes original content that provides unique, under-the-radar discoveries related to fashion & beauty, food & travel, home decor, tech, recipes, health, and more.

Prior to starting PureWow, Harwood worked for Goldman Sachs & Co. for five years and was instrumental in the development of the newly formed Goldman Sachs Private Bank. He is a graduate of the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.  Harwood was a two-time captain of the men’s varsity tennis team at Penn and also played professional tennis during the 2003-2004 season.

In 2017, serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk acquired PureWow to form The Gallery as a creative agency and media firm. Ryan serves as CEO of both PureWow and The Gallery.
