About Ed

Ed Ridenbaugh is a highly regarded motivational Keynote speaker who is known for his outstanding wit, humor, and his ability to make his audience feel something. From growing up in the projects in Windham, Ohio, Ed knows what it is like to struggle and come from having nothing.

Trying to figure this thing out called life was a huge struggle for Ed, as he had to face the fact at an early age that he was gay but would never be able to admit to it for years for fear of retaliation and rejection by those closest to him including his family.

Struggling with his identity, he married Barb in his early twenties and out of that marriage came two wonderful daughters, Arianna and Devin. As he grew older, he found himself battling depression, anxiety and at times suicidal thoughts. He finally came to the realization that for him to be happy he needed to face his truth, and today he lives his life the way it was intended to be lived. 

Ed is also the owner and CEO of All County Professional Limousine, a Private Car and Limousine service, also the Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Gorant Candies of Warren a family-owned chocolate company known for their gourmet and hand crafted chocolates and last but not least he is the owner and CEO of The Ridenbaugh Group, a motivational speaking organization based in Mineral Ridge, Ohio.

His interests are many, from being a competitive professional dancer, (YES he still dances professionally to this day), to drinking his wine, you will always see Ed on the move looking for the next big thing. Be sure to catch him at a speaking engagement in your area.
