WJR Business Beat with Jeff Sloan: Tricia Ruby (Episode 57)

On the WJR Business Beat this morning, we’re featuring the story of Tricia Ruby, a great entrepreneur right here in the metro Detroit region. Tricia is the CEO of a structural engineering company known as Ruby+Associates, started by her father, David Ruby.

The company engineers the buildings, bridges and venues that construction companies in our region build and that we all use and enjoy every day. Tricia joined the company in 2001, first volunteering to help out her dad, and as the story goes, she never left.

On this weekend’s StartupNation Radio show featuring Ruby+Associates, Jeff was able to ask Tricia what she credits her success with in leading the company to new heights of success.

Here’s what she had to say:

I’ve really worked on employee culture. We’ve been certified as a great place to work for the past five years. I really think that the culture is incredibly important.

– Tricia Ruby, president and CEO of Ruby+Associates
