Member Spotlight: Ryan Schick makes strides for the City of Columbus and entrepreneurs

Ryan SchickFranklin County Young Democrats member, Ryan Schick, has a new job that will do big things for Columbus. Ryan has been chosen as the new Assistant Director of Building and Zoning Services at City of Columbus.

In this role, he will “help entrepreneurs negotiate city red tape in order to launch new businesses [that] could have a beneficial effect on local employment and tax revenue,” according to The Columbus Dispatch.

Ryan told The Metropreneur: “Columbus is the town where the world’s best salty caramel was invented, where the CompuServe GIF was programmed, and where a group of cycling enthusiasts decided that they could ride to beat cancer. Columbus is passionate, it’s driven, and because of this environment, we will succeed.”

The FCYDems are honored to have Ryan as a member and look forward to businesses coming alive thanks to his work at the city.
