Rick Ehresman graduated from Wichita State University in 1986 with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and began his career working as an Electronics Engineer – initially focusing on embedded and companion software for the company’s products, and later for a large manufacturing company as a technical liaison between an engineering design group and an outsourced electronics design and manufacturing company. As Spectrum, Inc. was starting and growing, as a consultant, Rick identified several efficiency improvements that could be made by first automating some of the many steps in the Time Reporting / Invoicing process, and ultimately by building a custom, integrated solution. The success of that project was the catalyst for adding Custom Software Development Services to Spectrum’s offerings.

Rick purchased Spectrum, Inc. in 2000 and remains the sole owner. His passion for finding software-based solutions to everyday business problems motivates him to continually learn new tools, frameworks and techniques, and to search for ways to continually improve Spectrum’s service today and in the future.
