A collection of past projects and experiences
"I was first introduced to Ryan Querry and Great Plains Sponsorships in April of 2017. Community officials wanted to learn the most reasonable approach in securing sponsorships for major recreational facilities in the City. Ryan was selected based on affirmative recommendations and through reviewing his prior experience. I found Ryan to be knowledgeable, confident, enthusiastic and engaging. I thought his sponsorship concepts were solid, especially his “Less is More” philosophy to create aesthetically pleasing facilities and quality and ongoing partnerships. The City contracted with Ryan and Great Plains Sponsorships to work with us on our sponsorship opportunities and we are currently enjoying his work in leading this effort"

"The City of Watertown was in need of someone to spearhead the sale of sponsorships for new facilities
that were coming on line. Ryan (GPS) came highly recommended to us based upon previous work that
he had been involved with. I reached out to Ryan about two years ago and the City contracted to work
with GPS for a total of 15 months. His contract ended in September of last year, but he is still wrapping
up some loose ends on a pending sponsorship on our Wellness Center.
I have been impressed with Ryan’s professionalism, work ethic and friendly demeanor. It is not easy
coming into an area where you are unknown and trying to make inroads in gaining the confidence of
people in an attempt to explain and sell the benefits of being a sponsor in a City-owned facility. Ryan
was able to secure several sponsors during his time in working for Watertown which would not have
occurred without his efforts. We would definitely consider contracting with GPS again if the need arises within our community."
