Ryan Cortez, Economic Development Coordinator, began his career with the City of Corona in 2014. Prior to his career in local government, Ryan helped found and manage a privately held construction firm headquartered in Costa Mesa, California. The skills developed well working in the private industry translated into Ryan leading the charge with Corona’s new development opportunities. Most recently Ryan has focused on the disposition and development of City owned property within Corona’s Downtown district. A lifelong resident of Corona, Ryan hopes to continue creating opportunity and helping Corona maintain its regional dominance.
