Rose’s success stems from living according to the golden rule: treat others as you would want to be treated. He runs the business with integrity, a trait that drives virtually all of his actions.
A Klamath Falls native and U.S. Air Force veteran, Rick Rose began his telecom career in 1988 selling long distance and telephone services for a small Pacific Northwest company. He opened and managed a Eugene, Oregon office for a Seattle-based service provider.
Later, Rick worked as a systems integrator designing, deploying, and managing voice and data Wide Area Networks for multi-location corporations. In 1998, he started a company that assisted schools in finding funding for Internet services.
In his leisure time, he plays golf, rides a motorcycle, travels, and plays music with a local band. He likes examining customers’ networks and coming up with novel solutions that improve their business.
Mark began his venture into communications when he tested for and passed his “Amateur Radio” license in the 1960’s and acted as one of the communications officers for a regional mountain search and rescue team. After that he worked with several communications companies before taking a position with a technical group supporting several radio stations in Southern Oregon.
In the late 1980’s Mark was offered a position designing and helping to implement mobile radio data terminals, and that eventually morphed into the computer network management services that became the groundwork for his current position with PCINW.
