Ayrton Bryan

Executive Director

Ayrton is a recent transplant to Milwaukee, but has already grown to love and value the many faces of the city. A practitioner of Servant Leadership and Mindfulness, he is eager to serve the Black Community and to bring others together to see, celebrate, and support Black Excellence. (One of) His favorite quotes: “A rising tide lifts all boats”. That mantra guides his passion for collaboration and community building.
