Ric Wasserman came to Athens County to attend Ohio University in 1983. Ric immediately was captivated by the beauty of this region, the progressive vibe of Athens and the never-ending kindness of the people.
Ric’s first job after college was in sales. Just a few years later he decided to start his own business. Over nearly three decades, Ric has owned all or part of a half-dozen businesses and employed over 1,000 people. He has made a habit of bringing people along, providing younger people with opportunities to improve their lives.
After serving the community through various non-profit boards and charitable organizations Ric was appointed, then elected as Athens County Treasurer in 2018. In all his 57 years there has never been an honor like serving the people every day. Ric has always been a believer in “Government done well” and his years in business have served him well in this endeavor, bringing efficiency and a customer service mentality to government service.
