Ryan Noble

With an innate ability to foresee problems and develop viable solutions to them, Ryan’s strategy and leadership skills have placed him in the forefront of two successful startups. Ryan and his partner Stephanie Leffler began their careers by building a hosted e-commerce platform for small and medium-sized businesses.

“MonsterCommerce flourished, rapidly grew from a team of four to a team of more than 200 people providing solutions for 8,000 e-commerce businesses.”

This company, known as MonsterCommerce, rapidly grew from a team of four to a team of 200 people providing solutions for 8,000 e-commerce businesses. Ryan realized that simply providing an e-commerce platform was not enough, and the company quickly added services to enhance its clients’ ability to experience success with online sales. With the addition of web design, merchant account and search engine optimization services, under the leadership of Noble, MonsterCommerce recorded more than $20 million in revenue during 2005.

Experience & History

In 2004, Ryan was profiled as one of the St. Louis Business Journal’s top “30 Under 30” young entrepreneurs. In the following year, MonsterCommerce was recognized as the Fastest Growing Private Company in St. Louis by the St. Louis Business Journal. Also a finalist for the SIIA Codie Award for Best e-Commerce Software, the company continued to enjoy success. In late 2005, St. Louis Commerce Magazine named MonsterCommerce as one of St. Louis’ Top 50 Businesses.

In early 2006, Ryan and Stephanie sold MonsterCommerce to internet giant Network Solutions, the original domain registrar. Ryan stayed with Network Solutions until May 2007.

Juggle.com was born in early 2008 as Ryan and Stephanie’s second startup. Juggle quickly became an established resource website covering close to one million topics. Over the course of the year, Juggle continued to experience growth. In November 2009, the company developed software to support the ability to scalably publish high-quality content. After seeing that other businesses shared the same need, Juggle spun off CrowdSource, which is focused on providing crowd-based solutions to businesses.

In 2010, Juggle expanded its operation to include monetizing and publishing niche e-commerce and information websites. The company began offering advertising services to brands looking to expand their reach online under the brand ROImedia.

In early 2011, Noble saw potential in the domain aftermarket. With over 100,000 domains up for auction each day, he led a research and development team to develop a domain analysis engine capable of filtering against more than 80 metrics, thereby giving Juggle the capability to assist businesses and investors in obtaining high-quality, premium domain names. Juggle began offering these services to businesses in August of 2011 under the ClickableNames brand.

Ryan’s passion and leadership abilities provide unmatched motivation and an invaluable ability to remain forward thinking.
