“Ron’s long and successful career has been achieved through strategic and values-driven planning to maximize business development and brand awareness through target-oriented marketing strategies.

Feinbaum has served many local and national organizations in the community, including the National Retail Federation, Random Acts of Flowers, Knoxville Utilities Board (KUB), and more. He earned an Executive Master of Business Administration from the Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK).

In addition to enhancing the national brand, Feinbaum is passionate about growing PYA’s presence in the local Knoxville community, too.
