The Genesis Group is an organization that brings together business and community leaders who are working to improve economic, social and cultural interests, and to foster unity and cooperation within the Mohawk Valley. Their focus is to create a positive impact in our community, a mission that Ryan is certainly familiar with.
Ryan Misencik, a Project Analyst with First Source, is a devoted husband and father, and an avid runner and cyclist. He strives to be a good role model for his daughters by sharing his time and talents, volunteering in a variety of capacities throughout our community. His actions and attitude emphasize how important giving back truly is.
