Ryan Peets has joined the Mississippi Business Journal as a sales representative.
A graduate of Jackson Prep and Ole Miss, Peets has been involved in sales and marketing in Austin, Texas and Jackson.
Peet’s assignment will be to develop new accounts for the Journal.
“We are delighted to have filled our open account executive position with Ryan,” said Associate Publisher Tami Jones.
“He brings great experience in cold calls and acquiring new business. We are looking forward to where he can take the Mississippi Business Journal, and the new initiatives we will soon be rolling out.
“New business is crucial to any media company, and we are no exception. The hire of Ryan will fill those needs, and help forge the Mississippi Business Journal into new places.”
While in Austin, Peets was involved in business development and sales for Go Green TX, a photovoltaic energy company.
He was director of operations for Green Ops Energy.
After he graduated from Jackson Prep in 2005, he attended Sewanee, the University of the South, in Tennessee for two years and studied English literature.
“I was recruited to play football, and I fell in love with the campus,” he said.
He transferred to the University of Mississippi and earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology.
He said he enjoyed the culture of Austin.
Professionally, he said he helped to start Green Ops Energy, a solar company.
“I learned a lot about business,” he said.
But the pull of home brought him back.
“I’m very excited to be back in Mississippi, in my hometown,” he said.
