2012 - Ryan Berry founded Berry Digital Solutions with one goal in mind: helping his community.
Berry Digital Solutions began with a sign advertising local computer repair in Ryan's front yard. As he began helping his community with their technology needs, Ryan quickly realized that there was a growing demand for small business digital marketing. Ryan shifted his focus and began assembling a team of experts.
2015 - Chris Anders joined Berry Digital solutions as part owner. Chris was tired of working for other
people. He wanted more control, flexibility, and to start a business that treated people with respect. He
spends most of his time working behind the scenes managing and building websites. Chris is the problem solver of the team and loves coming up with the best solution when faced with a new challenge.
2016 – Erika Berry officially joined the team as a project manager. She was excited to help the business
grow and needed something more flexible with young kids at home. This was a huge milestone for Berry
Digital Solutions because it meant that both Ryan and Erika could support their family while also being able to spend more time together.
2018 – Staci Wisma joined the team initially as a “Dot Connector”. In that role she oversaw connections
between businesses and organizations to local resources, creating partnerships that benefit the entire
community. She then briefly attempted a role in sales but quickly realized it wasn’t for her. Today she focuses on Customer Relations and is often the main contact within Berry Digital Solutions for clients.
2018 - Kelli Ross joined Berry Digital Solutions as a website builder. She needed a place that could be
flexible with her schedule because of the time she has to spend to care for her special needs son. She can work from home, and the business is so supportive of her life situation, while also allowing her to grow and thrive in her job.
2021 - Adam Moore came on as a part of the team as a salesman. Ryan met Adam a few years prior through a partnership with the City of Urbana. Ryan has an ongoing list of people that he wanted on his sales team and Adam was one of them. When the time was right for Adam to make a change, they added him to the team at Berry Digital Solutions.
2021 - Mckenzie Wells and Danielle Norton joined the team at the same time. Berry Digital Solutions
was initially looking to fill one role within the team, but after meeting with both Mckenzie and Danielle
they realized they had found two of the right kind of people to join the team. They couldn't pass up the
opportunity, so they brought them both on. Mckenzie fills the role of web specialist while Danielle has
stepped into the role of project manager.
2021 - Steven Holliday is the most recent member of the team. He joined as our new Content Creator.
Through their conversations at the soccer field, Steven learned all the things Ryan was doing and knew
he wanted to get involved. When he decided to leave the education system, he took a chance to reach out to Ryan and let him know how much he wanted to be part of what he was doing and was hired shortly after.
Today - Ryan Berry spends most of his time helping to connect his community with local experts
while serving on local boards and helping fellow entrepreneurs with startups. His dream and passion for helping local businesses has brought all these amazing people together to form the Berry Digital Solutions team you and know and trust. We couldn’t be more thankful for Ryan and that sign he placed in his front yard ten years ago
