George Brint Ryan Appointed Chairman of Texas Task Force to Restart EconomyDALLAS (April 13, 2020) – Ryan, a leading global tax services and software provider, announced that Chairman and CEO G. Brint Ryan has been appointed by Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick to lead a task force on reopening the Texas economy. This group will develop strategies and deliver a roadmap for restarting the Texas economy once President Trump and Governor Abbott announce that businesses can reopen and Texans can go back to work.

“Texas businesses have played a key role in driving U.S. economic growth, and when the time is right, we plan to have the process in place to support a remarkable next stage of progress,” said Ryan Chairman and CEO G. Brint Ryan. “I appreciate that Texas business leaders are anxious to lead our nation into a new, more powerful economic rebirth, and our task force will support their ability to flourish during this restart.”
