Most recently he has been involved in the deployment and installation of large scale digital signage projects with TechniqueUSA. Rick is a founding member of MESA (Minnesota Emerging Software Advisors), focused on mentoring early stage technology companies.
“The opportunity to add Rick to our team was something we couldn’t pass up,” said Dave Perrill, CFO of WAND. “His consistent record of guiding organizations to success is well known.
