Detroit needs more people like Ric Geyer to build a bright future - 05/01/02

Detroit needs more people like Ric Geyer to build a bright future - 05/01/02Detroit needs more people like Ric Geyer to build a bright futureRic Geyer's passion for the city of Detroit is a little hard to understand at first.But that's true of many people who operate in the great American tradition of spontaneous caring. It's a powerful groove, in any case -- straight from the heart, and it holds one of the important keys to the city's revival. "My wife says I had a previous life here," laughs Geyer, a Cleveland native and executive in the Detroit office of Deloitte & Touche, the global accounting and business consulting firm. But there's a more cogent explanation why a transplant who arrived here as an adult in 1986 would go to bat for Detroit as if his life depended on it. "I don't remember the way it was," he says."I just think about the way it can be.We have more potential than any city in the nation.Every single thing we need to make a viable city is here." And that, importantly, includes a growing dedication among Detroit-based businesses to mid-level, practical volunteerism. Not long after his arrival, Geyer began to formulate a doctrine that some might call radical: The city is not to be feared; it is to be helped. On his own time, he got active with broad-based volunteer groups like Paint the Town, Habitat for Humanity, Angel's Night Patrol and Volunteer Impact. He took the Detroit Regional Chamber's Leadership Detroit seminars, joined the Urban Land Institute and Detroit Urban League and became a director of the Indian Village Historical District. An art devotee, he was on the board of the Heidelberg Art Project and joined committees dedicated to finding a home in the city for avant-garde art. It was becoming more of a calling than a hobby.So he went to his boss at Deloitte and announced his resignation.It wasn't accepted. Don't quit, he was told.Remain active in the community, but do it under the company's auspices.As long as he met agreed upon business objectives, he could devote a substantial portion of his work week to civic activism. Geyer concluded personally that someone with a corporate moniker might be a more effective advocate in the long run than someone without that power base.So he stayed. Now he was ready for big-time civic involvement culminating with a top spot on Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's transition team and election as president of Preservation Wayne, the big and vocal historical preservation nonprofit group. But Geyer is going even farther, linking his personal fortunes more closely with the city's.He plans soon to open an art gallery combined with artists' lofts in an old warehouse on the city's near west side. "I'm betting my life savings that the city is turning around," he says.
