Inspired by Family, Local Developer Gives Back to Seniors

Joe Ryan, CEO and owner of Oppidan Investment Company

Joe Ryan’s worldview is simple: leave the world better than you found it.

As the CEO and owner of Oppidan Investment Company, a national property development firm based in Excelsior, Ryan knows he—and Oppidan—can make a real difference in the communities they serve.

Ryan grew up in Hibbing, Minn. before attending the University of St. Thomas and moving to the Twin Cities. From a young age, he learned the importance of giving back to the community.

Instead, she experienced a surprisingly life-changing year.
