Meet the Chamber Board of Directors: Ryan Hoffmann
We would like to help you get to know the Chamber’s Board of Directors a little better, so we’ve asked a few questions of them to help do just that.
Next up is Ryan Hoffmann of FTS Technology Group!
My name is Ryan Hoffmann and I own FTS Technology Group, I volunteer my time as a board member for Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce, a board member for the Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation, and the Kewaunee County Broadband committee.
Tell everyone little about your company/organization and your position or the role you play.
FTS Technology Group was created to help serve the technology sales and support needs of Kewaunee County and surrounding areas businesses. After seeing a lot of small businesses operate with a fire fighting method of technology support I wanted to be a service that allows them to offload their technology needs to and be a technology partner with.
With services such as fully managed computers and network to just calling our office for problems we can partner in whatever manner you want us to without any pushy sales but yet providing standardized but customized approaches to our support and sales.
How long have you been involved as a member of the Chamber’s BOD and why do you wish to serve in this way?
I am starting my 4th year as a board member. While the chamber doesn’t directly benefit my business I believe in helping grow the area economically. I did not grow up in the county, but both my mom and dad’s families are from Kewaunee County and both had businesses in Algoma/surrounding area.
My mom’s dad (Marty Evers) owned Lakeview Lumber for many years. My dad’s parents owned Hoffmann’s Sip & Chat in Cedar Corners (now City Limits) and anyone who remembers that from the 70’s will remember the amazing pizza that I have heard so much about as well have made for family and friends myself.
What else would you like everyone to know? A hobby, your family, favorite things to do and see in Algoma etc?
I recently got divorced and just moved into Algoma in 2020 from Southern Door as I want to help support the area that supports our business. Right now my hobbies are working on my house and working to grow FTS as we are currently looking to add more technicians immediately and in the near future to continue to meet our customer workload.
FTS Technology Group is located at 316 Steele Street in Algoma, WI.
