New Urban One Senior Associate Hire – Ryan Johnson

We would like to introduce one of our latest additions to the Urban One team, Ryan Johnson. Ryan just joined Urban One as a Senior Associate this month and will be responsible for the sourcing and execution of acquisitions. He will also be involved in business development, investor relations, underwriting, evaluation and business plan development for new investments and managing the due diligence and closing process for new acquisitions.  Welcome Ryan!

Ryan will play a critical role in Urban One’s transition in executing our own development deals that will supplement the Fee Development and Consulting business that we have been fortunate to build since the firm’s inception.  For our existing and future clients, the Fee Development and Consulting side of the business will remain in tact while we build this new branch of the company.  This is an exciting time for all and we feel that our patience and resilience through the past half decade has prepared us for this.
