Ron Bentch | Project Director

Ron Bentch

If you need someone to build a ukulele for you, a genuine conversation about life, or just a friendly reminder that you’re awesome, Ron is your person! Ron worked as a construction contractor in central Missouri for ten years, and before that, he and his family of four spent several years in South Africa leading diverse teams in community development and sustainability projects. Ron wanted to use his privilege and experience to create change in communities and found the perfect job as the Project Director for Missourians for Responsible Transportation. This position allows him to use the community-building skills he honed in Africa as he travels the state and meets with community leaders who want to increase walking, biking, and transit options for all Missourians.
