Ron RuhsRon Ruhs

Ron Ruhs is MACC’s Featured Employee for August. He is a Systems Support Specialist on our Technical Services Team. Those of you who work with your company’s switch have likely worked with Ron over the years as he helps clients send polling data to MACC for billing. He also keeps busy helping MACC’s employees with PC and network troubles, works with our building’s security system, and troubleshoots our telephone/PBX system if issues arise.

Q. When did you start at MACC?
A. October of 1990 – 30 years!

Q. What’s your favorite part of your job?
A. It is getting to do a wide variety of things. I have also made some pretty good friends over the course of 30 years.

Q. Can you please tell us about your family?
A. I have been married to my beautiful wife, Bobbie, for just short of 20 years. We have two kids and four grandkids, with a fifth due in December (our son’s first).

Q. What do you do for fun in your free time?
A. Bobbie and I like to ride our bicycles and also do a number of runs including 5Ks to ultra-marathons of 100 miles. I play on the worship team at church and am in an original punk band in Omaha. Guitar building/repair and electronics are also a hobby.

Q. If you could travel anywhere to spend a week on vacation, where would it be?
A. It’s too hard to restrict that to a single location so I’ll just go with one of my favorite places– the big island of Hawaii. But going to see the ruins at somewhere like Jerusalem, Rome, or throughout Egypt would be really cool.

Q. What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?
A. Hit the lottery. Just kidding!

Q. What’s your favorite quote?
A. Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.

Q. The one person I’ve always wanted to meet?
A. Jesus.

Q. If you could add any food to the MACC vending machines, what would it be?
A. Are jalapeno poppers too much to ask?
