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 also President and Chief Executive Officer for Casco Communications, Inc. and is the Member/Owners Representative of CoEnergy Propane, LLC. Rick currently serves on the Board of Directors of Western Independent Networks (WIN), the regional mid-Willamette advisory Board of Umpqua Bank, the Lebanon Chamber of Commerce (past President) and the Albany Chamber of Commerce.

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.
