Rick Petersen

As President and Chief Executive Officer for PEAK Internet Rick brings an in-depth knowledge and expertise in telecommunications and a passion for customer service. Rick has demonstrated his leadership and technical acumen in the industry for over 35 years.

Rick gained extensive knowledge of the telecommunications industry with over 20 years experience with an independent telephone company with interests in cable TV, Internet, business telephone systems and cellular licenses. He left as Vice President/Operations Manager.

Petersen served on the Board and was Secretary/Treasurer of Washington Oregon Wireless (WOW), a consortium of Telephone and utility companies formed to construct a $60 million cellular PCS project in rural Oregon and Washington.

Rick is an Oregon native and lives on a ranch outside of Brownsville with his wife and son where they raise horses, exotic cats and work to be good stewards of the land.

For fun Rick enjoys working on the ranch with family, going in circles on a tractor, or “top down” in a fast car.

What our customers are saying...

Our transition to PEAK Support was seamless and transparent. We are delighted with this partnership.

I wasn’t going to do this tune-up as I’ve had my computer accessed in the past by Microsoft, and it took a long time, and the techs were difficult to communicate with. Todays experience with PEAK was great… he accessed my computer and tuned it up quickly and easily. Thank you!
