Ryan WillisSenior Account Executive

Often confused with being the world’s biggest country music fan, Ryan brings more than seven years of marketing communications, digital strategy, and event planning experience to Ackermann and has achieved notable success as the firm’s resident media relations expert. His biggest accomplishment, however, may be all of the volunteer work he does in the Knoxville community, specifically as a “Big” with Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee. Ryan’s unique compassion for people comes out in everything that he does.
