Rickie established LANTEC’s headquarters in Baton Rouge in October 1999 when an entrepreneurial opportunity presented itself after he served in the roles of account executive and later sales manager of a computer training franchise in Lafayette (1996-1999). He studied accounting and economics at both Northeastern State University and USL before joining PJC Computer Consulting in New Iberia in the early ‘80s. Rickie first began his computer career with sales and support of IBM mainframes and later the very first PCs. In 1986, he founded Comeaux Computer Consultants, where he continued to sell, support and service hardware and software for ten years to businesses throughout the Acadiana region. Rickie has a very hands-on leadership philosophy and enjoys the fast paced environment of LANTEC and daily interaction with the staff we’ve built. His “never-quit” mentality, sense of humor, and generous spirit lends our company a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. Under his vision and direction, LANtec has continued to grow and thrive in a competitive training market, ultimately resulting in its service not only throughout Louisiana, but also in every state and U.S. territory abroad. Rickie currently resides in Arnaudville with his wife, Becky, and has 3 kids and 2 grandkids.
