Ryan leads DiPerna’s advisory services to their State, County, and Port Authority clients to implement, enhance, and operate unique and innovative financing and incentive programs, including credit rated Bond Funds, PACE Revolving Loan Programs, and Infrastructure Revolving Loan Programs, encouraging economic development for both the public and private sectors. In addition to serving as the primary contact and advisor to DiPerna’s municipal clients, Ryan also provides structuring services related to public finance packages for his real estate developer clients, interfacing with cities, counties, and school district representatives to ensure acceptable entitlement and revenue sharing terms to maximize reimbursement value, or in many cases, monetizing future tax revenue streams through the issuance of tax-exempt and taxable revenue bonds for public infrastructure and parking garage, with and without the need for municipal credit enhancement.


Ryan has intimate knowledge and experience in establishing, structuring, and managing the following:


  • Commercial and Residential tax increment financing (TIF) districts

  • New community authority (NCA)

  • Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE)

  • Energy special improvement districts (ESIDs)


Ryan also leads the firm’s Revenue Reporting and district administrator service offerings, utilizing a sophisticated knowledge of real estate development, bond structuring, and tax revenue and abatement laws throughout the Midwest to provide developers, underwriters, and placement agents a projections and verification report to be used for the sale of revenue bonds into the capital markets - aiding to the credibility of a project’s TIF and tax revenue projections. These reports have served as a basis for the sizing of revenue bonds backed by existing incentive districts and/or future incentive district revenues from proposed development projects. The administrator duties that Ryan manages ensure efficient and transparent charge calculation and collection processes are implemented for both public and private sector clients.
