Headshot of IER Muscatine Plant Manager Ryan SmithBefore joining IER, Ryan Smith ran his own construction company that focused on finishing carpentry in new homes until the softening of the housing market in 2008.  Ryan then shifted his focus to a calf cow farm operation that he ran with his family; in that process he got a CDL to help with farming operations.  While continuing to farm Ryan worked for 4 years at a start-up company in Rock Island IL, before joining IER.

At the Muscatine Plant, Ryan worked his way up from a Service Technician to Plant Manager, where he oversees the day-to-day operations of product manufacturing and delivery to the customers.

In his free time, Ryan enjoys riding horses and spending time in the outdoors with his family.
