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...

Peak was God sent 3-4 hours of work on my problem and he did not stop until it was done. I would like to say he is the best I have ever had, but every time I have called in for help, I have left with the same ‘glow’ of having received the best and friendliest help ever — Thank you Peak!!!!

Thanks to PEAK Professional Services we do not have to maintain a full-time IT staff which in turns lowers our cost for IT maintenance and company overhead. PEAK has greatly increased our productivity by decreasing our IT headaches. We could not operate without PEAK Professional Services team handling our everyday technical support needs.
