Company Partner, Sales Team Manager
I am the President and a Partner at i3 Business Solutions. I manage the sales team to drive growth, the accounting team to assure financial health and I’m responsible for the overall health of i3. I have been with i3 since its inception. Along with investors, I acquired 21st Century Computer Specialists, Inc. in 2001 and merged with Silver Lake Resources in 2004 to create i3 Business Solutions.
I’m passionate about technology and its application personally and for business. I love helping organizations accelerate their productivity and profitability through the implementation of technology solutions.
The challenge of engaging with new prospective opportunities and delivering excellent products and services to improve organizational performance is exciting to me. I’m passionate about high quality people, process and the services that i3 delivers. It would be a disservice to not introduce organizations to i3 service excellence.
Personally, I’m most proud of the Ritsema family here in West Michigan: my children and grandchildren. I’m privileged to have served as both the Tri-unity Christian School and Unto, Inc. Board President where some of my most gratifying work has occurred. I love running, including local 5K-25K races. I enjoy riding my bike with my wife and friends including an annual 65 mile ride called the Rapid Wheelman Colorburst Tour. I love the challenge of golfing with friends in a variety of memorable venues. I still play “slow-motion” basketball with a bunch of old guys one night per week. I enjoy reading, learning and traveling as well as anything that offers a new challenge.
“Accept the challenges, so that you feel the exhilaration of victory”.
