Rick went to the University of Colorado, Boulder so he could study mechanical engineering and snowboard 60 days a year.  He graduated with a BS in Engineering, and the rest is history.

Rick has always had a talent for understanding and troubleshooting computer and software issues.  His computer technical expertise was evident early on when he naturally became the “go to guy” at several of his positions before users would call IT support services.  His work  at Spanlink Communications as an Account Development Manager, and his inside sales support of customers at Rosemount, Inc., in Chanhassen were solid foundational experiences for the customer relationship management work he has taken on at Interlinx.

Rick also brings entrepreneurial and Web experience to Interlinx through his SnowProfessor.com business and Rick Ryan Productions.  Rick Ryan Productions was a wedding video production company which he operated for three years.  Rick is now leveraging his knowledge of Search Engine Optimization, Web development, marketing and video production from his SnowProfessor.com website for the new Interlinx WebLinx Site Tracker and Web Support business.

It doesn’t take long to find out that Rick’s passion outside of work are his kids, Ellie and Spencer, and his wife Jenny who works at the General Store of Minnetonka.

Rick’s other passion is snowboarding, where he is not only an accomplished boarder, but has served on the American Association of Snowboard Instructors Board of Directors, attained Level 3 Snowboard certification, Freestyle Accreditation, and Children’s Accreditation.  He has also earned a spot on the AASI Central Division Educational Staff.  Rick is currently a snowboard instructor and coach at the Hyland Ski and Snowboard Area and for SkiJammers.  See Rick’s board in action on this video (click on the link).  Rick Putnam on the board, 2010
