Ryan Tyson is a dynamic young executive with over seven years of experience working in the Site Development side of the Wireless Telecommunications industry.
Ryan was educated at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2010 and a Law degree in 2013. Following graduation, Ryan returned home to Southern California and passed the California State Bar Examination, becoming a licensed attorney.
Ryan then began his career as a legal & real estate specialist with Smartlink LLC, one of the nation’s largest vendors of site development consulting services, in their Southern California office, mainly supporting Sprint site upgrades in Los Angeles and Crown Castle site relocations around the Western US. From there, he continued to add additional skills to his repertoire, as his role expanded to include legal research on land use law, heavy negotiation with landowners and their representatives, cooperation with local government officials to secure permits, extensive client contact with both Sprint and Crown Castle, new site construction projects, cross-country travel, and a deeper perspective on the actual work done in the site development business.
After some time in a production role, Ryan parlayed his skills into a role with a more traditional law firm, as a general real estate attorney working on matters including a wider spectrum of commercial leasing, business formation and operation, a broader spectrum of real estate development projects, and extensive finance and tax law.
When the opportunity to return to Smartlink as a Project Manager came up, Ryan took it and helmed a complex site development project supporting Sprint’s upgrade to 5G service in Los Angeles. After managing a large slate of site upgrades for Smartlink on behalf of Sprint, Ryan was hired to join Sprint’s Regional Site Development team as a Program Manager, as one of the youngest ever hired to his position. He spent the next years managing a large multi-profession team supporting Sprint’s first 5G launch in Los Angeles, and specialized in dealing with the most complex of site upgrades. At Sprint, Ryan developed a hands-on familiarity with 5G equipment, installation, development, and business concerns associated with deploying a 5G network on a national level.
Following Sprint’s merger into T-Mobile, Ryan joined the management team of a startup site and network development consulting firm, where he oversees a small department responsible for site development permitting and government relations.
