Christopher Ryder

Principal, expert in transaction services

Christopher is a Principal in our Lund office, and works predominantly in transaction support. He has supported deals across the TMT landscape including ICT services, network operators and digital infrastructure.

His specialist areas further include online media and the digitalisation of society – where he has worked with strategy development and regulatory issues.

Christopher is proud of Analysys Mason’s contribution to closing the digital divide. During Covid his own work helped alleviate isolation among vulnerable societal groups: he helped create digital guides to demonstrate how to keep in touch with loved ones online, and how to manage everyday tasks such as grocery shopping or getting access to prescribed medicine when in isolation.

Christopher has been active in the global media and telecoms market since 2006, working for network equipment vendors and network operators, as well as broadcast and online media providers. Before joining Analysys Mason, Christopher worked primarily in product management and business development for both enterprise- and consumer-facing areas, including early development of conversational interfaces for media services.

Christopher's deep engagement with AI is rooted in his academic background, holding a BA in Cognitive Science from Linköping University and an MSc in Applied IT from Gothenburg University. He is today one of Analysys Mason’s leading experts in the field.

Outside of work, Christopher enjoys getting outdoors, the open-endedness of unplanned road trips and the genius of Nashville songwriting.
