Ron has been active in the Ann Arbor real estate business since 1972. He joined Swisher Commercial in 1978. He is a specialist in office and industrial sales and leasing, with substantial experience in the management of multi-tenant Class A office buildings and retail strips. This experience gives him the added capability of more fully understanding commercial real estate from both landlord and tenant perspectives.
His community involvement includes two mayoral appointments to the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority (1998-2006), where he served as 2000-2001 Chairman of the Board of Directors, and served six years as Chair of the Parking Operations and Finance Committee.
In 2010, Ron was elected Secretary of the Board of Directors of the newly-formed Main Street Business Improvement Zone (MSBIZ), a non-profit organization voluntarily funded by a Zone property owners surtax, to improve services and appearance in the 100, 200 and 300 block streetscape of South Main Street in Ann Arbor.
In 2011 Ron joined a City of Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority (DDA) Leadership and Outreach committee charged to plan for the sale of City-owned commercial real estate parcels in the Central Business District of Ann Arbor.
Ron and his wife Barbara live in Ann Arbor and enjoy sailing, traveling, golf, and racquetball. They have one daughter and son-in-law, who are former Peace Corps volunteers, living in Washington, DC.
