Employee Spotlight: Rick Thering, Senior Engineer

Rick TheringWhile Rick Thering has been employed at Providence for only 4 years, he has roots with the company that span nearly two decades. As a long-time friend of Providence President (and Chief Problem Solver) Jeff Dettloff, Rick can claim 18 years of working closely with the Providence founder.

As the company’s Senior Engineer, Rick tackles many of the most difficult tasks we face, and teams with other staff members to help untangle vexing tech problems. During Rick’s tenure, the company has experienced tremendous growth.

“Since I joined the team,” says Rick, “we have increased our client base by a factor of ten.”

Rick’s specialties are Network Design and Troubleshooting, but he is a jack of all trades that can be found working in nearly any facet of the business at any given time.

“I love working with our clients, learning about what they do and helping them to make their jobs easier,” Rick explains. “It is really fulfilling to watch our clients succeed, and I help organizations do just that by showing them how to use the technology that is available to them to expand the business that they do!”

When he’s not busy troubleshooting network problems, Rick is devoted to his family.

“My wife and I spent the last 20 years raising three wonderful children,” he says. “Now that we have two of them off to college, we are starting to travel more. We did a trip this spring to Costa Rica where we toured the coastal region, and spent a couple of nights viewing a live Volcano. We also started a project this year to restore a classic car.”
