Ryan Reiter is currently the government affairs director for Kaufman Lynn Construction. Kaufman Lynn has built exceptionally high-quality buildings and long-lasting client relationships throughout South Florida. Ryan was previously with the Children’s Services Council of Broward County, advocating on behalf of children and families, and serving communities locally and statewide. Ryan served as a sergeant in the United States Marine Corps with one tour overseas on a Boarder Transition Team in the southern region of Al Anbar, Iraq. After returning home from the Marines, Ryan aided countywide and local initiatives while also working for the State as a local veterans’ representative, assisting veterans with finding gainful employment. He has served as the aide to Broward County Commissioner Chip LaMarca of District 4.
