Vice President & Senior Network Engineer
My name is Justin Rickenbaugh; I was born in the Tri-State and grew up here in Boonville Indiana. I graduated from Boonville High School in 2004 before marrying my high school sweetheart Emily in 2005. Throughout my high school and college career I knew I was destined to be an entrepreneur of some fashion. I began with a small lawn care service and after saving enough money for my first car, I partnered with my best friend to form a company called DJ Force. DJ Force provided DJ & Karaoke services at school dances and weddings around the Tri-State. We operated the business over 4 years before we both decided to sell out and moved on to new endeavors.
I then began my college journey at Indiana State University before transferring to Ivy Tech where I graduated magna cum laude with an Associate of Applied Science degree in Computer Information Systems. I joined the PC Quest team in August of 2005 as a sales associate. During the next few years, I moved from the sales floor to building new systems and then on to onsite service. As an onsite service technician, I began to focus specifically on network security eventually earning SonicWALL’s top certification along with certifications from top vendors including EnGenius, Acronis, RingCentral, Star2Star and ConnectWise. I continued in this role for over a decade before being promoted to my current role as Vice President of PC Quest.
During this time of professional growth, I have also been extremely blessed in my personal life. I am celebrating 15 years of marriage with my beautiful wife Emily. I have also been blessed with two beautiful children. Lily who was born in 2009 and Mason who was born in 2011. When I am not working with my team, I enjoy coaching my kids in a variety of sports and playing baseball and softball myself. I am an active member of my local church Main St General Baptist where I serve on the finance committee.
