Experienced leadership comes from being there from the beginning. In our case, since Synetic, a certified IT asset disposition firm, was founded back in 1999. Strong leadership comes from rolling up your sleeves and getting dirty when needed. That’s what our leaders have always done, going back to the early days when they’d unload truckloads of disposed IT assets at 5 o’clock in the morning, take a quick shower and be at a meeting by 9:00.
It’s what entrepreneurs do. It’s how leaders lead. It’s how Synetic attracts quality staff. It’s why we’ve earned the trust of Fortune-listed local and global corporations in the finance, healthcare, technology, government, legal, education and energy sectors, and educational institutions.
Starting back in our early days and continuing today, Synetic’s leaders have always done whatever it takes to deliver the unmatched service our customers deserve. And all along the way, they’ve built great relationships and confidence on our unmatched service and value add propositions under certified practices in data security and responsible recycling.

He honed his management skills leading people and systems in the Navy under the greatest demands and the highest of expectations and standards, both from his peers and his superiors. Ron’s performance in the Navy and since can be attributed to many things. Among them are his natural tendencies to innovate, building mutually beneficial connections with other business executives and participating in organizations like the Helzberg Entrepreneurial Mentoring Program (HEMP). Watch Ron talk about Synetic Technologies and the benefit of participating in the HEMP program.
Ron is the proud father of three daughters. He coaches competitive softball and enjoys spending every minute with his family. His hobbies involve hunting, fishing and classic cars.
