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...

Peak Internet came right in and listened to what we were having troubles with. Then sent out there technicians and installed fixed wireless at our Willamette Valley Campus. Since that day I can not describe how great our internet service has been. My staff and I are amazed at the speed.

Kyle Randleman Executive Director of Northwest Adult & Teen Challenge

I have had service with Peak for over a decade. Their customer service is second to none. The last time I asked for help, two different people spent a significant part of their shift on the phone with me and a non-local service provider trying to fix a problem that had nothing to do directly with Peak. They could have left me out to dry and they were nothing but gracious and helpful. And they're local!

It has been my pleasure to work with PEAK and their contact center. They have been nimble and able to flex to assist us as we’ve made changes at our company. They’ve been a great partner as we’ve evolved our support solution. Janet Bailey DirectLink & Beaver Creek
