Collin Barr

President (North Region)

Ryan Cos.




Maybe the guy on the street doesn’t know Collin Barr’s name, but during his career Barr has done much to shape the landscape of the Twin Cities. Back in the 1990s, Barr led store development for fast-growing Caribou Coffee. He joined Minneapolis-based Ryan in 1997 as a developer, playing a key role in downtown Minneapolis projects including U.S. Bancorp Center and Target’s corporate headquarters. As part of Ryan’s executive leadership team, Barr helped steer the construction and development firm through the recession. Today, Ryan is busier than ever as it wraps up its major Downtown East redevelopment.
