Ryan Bruner Raised in Carroll, Iowa and a 2011 graduate of the University of Iowa, I am the 2018 board president of Young Professionals Connection. I am a person that values my relationship with my family and my community above all else. I feel that Greater Des Moines (DSM) has given me the opportunity to be successful and happy because of the work powerful leaders of DSM’s past have done. It is my responsibility to leave this community better than I found it. I want to be known as a leader that listens first and makes sure all members of the DSM community have a seat at the table to discuss ways to better our community.
