Born in Colorado, Brian Ripley grew up rooted in the state’s amazing geographical attributes. His active lifestyle and search for adventure has taken him from hunting blinds to backcountry huts, from pushing cows on horseback to pushing pucks on the hockey rink. He is goal oriented and his connection to land and people is his motivation.
While earning a MS in Animal Science from Colorado State University, Brian focused on ranch management systems. This education became the foundation for his success in ranch management roles for almost 20 years and compelled his stewardship of ranch resources. After 4 years as the Operations Manager for Lost Valley Ranch, he moved to Routt County in 2004 to be the General Manager at King Creek Ranch, furthering his hands-on experience overseeing all facets of agricultural and recreational properties.
Brian has hands-on experience with all facets of agricultural and recreational properties and he owns and operates Ripley Livestock, LLC. As the ranch sales specialist for The Paoli Group, Brian knows the ups and downs of agricultural markets and understand the integrated relationship of resources as well as the complexities of decision-making within systems. With his wife (and high school sweetheart) Kira, he strives to teach real-world, valuable lessons to their three active sons though hockey, baseball, hunting, horseback riding, and participation in 4-H.
