President and Owner

staff_member_view

Ron has several decades of experience in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. Ron Blank started his company RonBlank & Associates in 1985 based on one underlying mission, to bridge the gap between design professionals and product manufacturers. His ten years of experience in designing and consulting on commercial concrete tilt-up projects throughout Texas helped. As the years went by, Ron saw a need for easily available continuing education for design professionals. He developed one of the first online learning centers for design professionals around the world to earn their AIA credits. Eventually Ron’s company would be the only AIA platform provider to win two national AIA continuing education awards.
After the launch of the LEED rating system, Ron saw a crucial need to educate design professionals about sustainability. He founded GreenCE in order to offer high quality education to LEED APs and LEED Green Associates. Ron also saw a significant opportunity to help building product manufacturers develop GBCI CE courses, LEED v4 documentation, and Health Product Declarations (HPDs). Today Ron oversees a talented group of architects, engineers, and dedicated professionals who hope to transform the building industry.
