Andy Timko

Andy Timko


Andy spent more time riding through the hilly forest preserves of New England’s Merrimack Valley on his beloved Trek 850 mountain bike than with his fishing pole, but learned to love and appreciate the outdoors from his grandfather, Paul, who spent many years as a Forest Ranger with the United States Forest Service and his father, Mike, an avid birder. Prior to joining Catch Co., Andy was a management consultant with Bain & Co. and an investment analyst with Mousse Partners.

Ryan McDonnell

Ryan McDonnell

Co-Founder & CTO

Born and raised in southern California, Ryan grew up in the middle of surf and snow. At age seven, he caught his first fish but didn’t know how to reel it in. Instead, he just ran away from the water and dragged it onto the shore. Prior to joining MTB, Ryan helped co-found CraftJack with Ross, served as CTO there, and ran a boutique software development firm specializing in advertising and marketing analytics.

Tim MacGuidwin
