Ryan Vet was raised in the suburbs of Chicago. As a young boy, Ryan dabbled with various entrepreneurial ventures ranging from the typical lemonade stand to a line of trading cards and a neighborhood newspaper.
At age 15, Vet opened Digi Tech Studio (DTS) in 2005. DTS is a marketing company providing marketing and advertising services, social media management, graphic design, web design and programming, and video production services.
The task of juggling a wide-range of leadership positions in school from serving at his church to managing a Raleigh-based band, Flowers for Faye and as a teenage CEO has given Ryan many real-life experiences that he desires to share with others that share his passion to lead. Recently, Ryan has joined up with the non-profit organization, Clothe Your Neighbor As Yourself, as their Director of Communications. He specifically oversees marketing and branding efforts.
As a Millennial (a member of Generation Y), Ryan Vet offers great insight into managing the upcoming generation. “We [Millennials] are the future. In just a few short years, we will be the ones sitting in the corner offices,” Vet says. “My generation has a lot to learn from the previous generations, but we have a problem– there’s an ever-increasing language barrier. My goal is to help bridge the major communication gap between my generation and previous generations.”
One of the big divisions between Millennials and previous generations is social media and the rapidly advancing technological world. Ryan Vet has taken a great interest into the evolving world of Social Media. He offers practical advice to businesspeople that are not as accustomed to dealing with members of Generation Y. Ryan speaks freely of the differences between the generations as well as offers solutions on how to manage and motivate Millennials in the workplace.
Vet attended Elon University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Specifically focusing on Business Marketing and Professional Selling. Ryan also loves to travel the world. He has been to hundreds of cities around the world including countries in five out of the seven continents. Some of these countries include: Togo (W. Africa), Ghana, Bangladesh, Kuwait, China, Brazil, England and South Africa. His experiences both locally, nationally and abroad are shared on Ryan’s travel blog.

“We are all normal people. We put our pants on the same way everyday. What sets a leader apart is his or her ability to take an ordinary opportunity and turn it into an extraordinary experience,” Vet said while addressing a group of eager young leaders.

Using the lessons he has learned in life, Ryan shares his experiences through his blog, his books and speaking on leadership, faith and social media.
