Tiffany Risner

After 4 years in Florida, I needed to experience seasons again, so I moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan to pursue a career in writing short fiction and poetry but along the way became enthralled with the glitzy world of Digital Marketing. I attended a Lunch Ann Arbor Marketing (http://la2m.org) meeting one warm Wednesday afternoon, and after, Derek Mehraban approached me with an internship offer. I jumped at the chance to work for the top Google ranked search result for the keyword "digital marketing." After 2 months of saturating myself with all things digital-- I was hired on full time as Interactive Marketing Coordinator.

I am responsible for social media and digital PR for clients as well as Ingenex properties, including the MSU New Media Driver's Licence® and Lunch Ann Arbor Marketing (the soil of my career.) In addition, I drive the strategic direction and create funny and relevant content for HashtagsForLife (http://hashtagsforlife.com), Internet inspiration in the form of #hashtags. Ingenex has given me the tools to achieve some significant results including increasing Ingenex Twitter followers by 60%, Ingenex Facebook "Likes" by 80% and snagging the attention of influential bloggers like Joe Levi who recently used our Virtual Tradeshow Experience concept we created for OSRAM Opto Semiconductors as an example of innovation in new media.

James W. Ribbron

Thank you for allowing me to introduce myself, my name is James W. Ribbron and I am the Michigan State University St. Clair County Extension Educator where I focus on educating community residents, leaders and policy makers on issues related to Economic Development. My area of expertise is business solutions intervention and retention, product development and innovation, new venture entrepreneurial development and using culture to drive economic development.   I recently worked as a Planner with the City Planning Commission – Detroit. My duties focused on economic development policy analysis for the Detroit City Council. Two major projects, the Paradise Valley/Cultural Entertainment District and the targeting of Community Development Block Grant funds for Economic Development, provide opportunities for continued growth and development professionally.

I served as the Executive Director for Eureka Communities Detroit until the fall of 2002 (October 1998 - October 2002). With over 18 years of community and political service experience in the City of Detroit I hold a Master’s in Community Development with a focus on Economic Development, from the University of Detroit Mercy, a B.A. from Wayne State University and I credit Jarvis Christian College, a historically Black College in Hawkins, Texas, for paving the way for me to complete my education.

My career began with the Detroit City Council’s Youth Advisory Commission as a Special Projects Assistant.  My tasks and duties included identifying issues of concern to Youth in Detroit and report the findings to the Detroit City Council. This was achieved by facilitating the Youth Committee, a group of Youth who met monthly to learn about City Government, analyze the City Budget and make recommendations to City Council on matters affecting youth.  I represented the Youth Commission during the development of the Youth Alert and Legislative Hearing on the Plight of the African American Male Reports commissioned by the Detroit City Council. I wrote and published a manual “Experiencing Government” which is a “how to manual" for youth participation in City Government.

In 1995 I began my political training and went to work for Detroit City Councilman Clyde Cleveland where I served as his Legislative Assistant. My duties included work on many of the Urban Renewal Projects that are now institutions in the City of Detroit, i.e., Comerica Park, the Casino’s and the Detroit Lions Project. I gained valuable experience working in the community with people helping citizens solve problems with city services and programs. Earlier training included work with the Michigan Metro Girl Scout Council, the Northern Area Association (NAA/YouthVille)) and 4-H Youth Programs.

As a Kellogg Youth Development Seminar Participant I represented the Davison Elementary School community in the Kellogg Foundation’s effort to develop Leadership from within the Detroit community. My work with the Kellogg Foundation helped develop my understanding of leadership and personal development. The effort to develop leadership put me on a track to leadership in my community. Additional training included New Detroit Excel 2000 Leadership, Michigan Political Leadership Program and a Eureka Fellow.

My community service includes time on the Michigan State University Extension Council for Wayne County and the Representative on the Statewide Council, Board of Directors for Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice and Detroit Primary Care Network.  Other volunteer activities include terms as a Chairman of the Wayne County Foster Review Board #9 and Community Liaison for the Davison Association of Neighborhood Block Clubs.

I am married to the Valerie Austin (Adrian and Gloria), have two children, a son, Arsenio and a daughter, Kaete and currently reside in Detroit, Michigan.

NEW (Nonprofit Enterprise at Work Inc.) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that has provided management and leadership development to the nonprofit sector since 1993 with offices in Ann Arbor and Detroit.   My commitment to the social sector has always been strong, and by living and working in downtown Detroit, NEW has given me the opportunity to reach out, support, strengthen, and make a difference in the lives and communities of the nonprofit organizations we serve.  

My career at NEW began as an intern under the CEO in 2009. I learned about internal operations related to social enterprise structures and management.  In the summer of 2010 I transitioned into a Project Management role with regard to marketing and re-branding. Currently, I’m in the unique position of being one of a few conduits that train community members and corporate citizens how to serve on nonprofit boards as well as match their interests with the nonprofit’s needs.  I’ve found through my facilitation experience with various types and sizes of boards and staff that both individuals and communities in Southeast Michigan can be characterized as innovative and resilient.   I chose to live, work, and play in Detroit because I have the opportunity to contribute to and be a part of that culture.
