We’re proud of our colleague Ryan Seacrist, PLA, who was recently named to Orlando Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” list for 2022. The award aims to highlight some of the most influential young business leaders in Central Florida each year.
As the Director of Florida Operations for RVi Planning + Landscape Architecture, Ryan has helped lead the ATWELL affiliate’s rapid growth in the Sunshine State over much of the past year. He started RVi’s Orlando office in the Spring of 2021, which at the time was their Florida market entry, and exceeded that office’s revenue goal for the year within their first five months.
In early Fall of 2021, Ryan was thrown an incredible curveball when ATWELL acquired a competing firm in Florida. This pushed RVi’s growth plan for the state into warp speed, with the addition of five new offices in Florida and nearly 50 planning and landscape architecture staff across the state. Ryan is now helping to oversee the growth of five RVi offices in Florida, which account for more than half of the company’s national footprint.
Born and raised in Charleston, West Virginia, Ryan was a first-generation college graduate in his family with a bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture from West Virginia University.
He relocated to Orlando in 2015, and now 12 years into his Landscape Architecture career Ryan has enjoyed establishing roots in Central Florida with his wife and young daughter. He serves on the City of Orlando’s nine-person Municipal Planning Board, is an active member of ULI Central Florida, and is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Central Florida.
We appreciate everything Ryan does for RVi and the Greater Orlando community!
