Ricardo graduated from Monroe College in Westchester County, New York, with degrees in computer science and business management. In 2003, Ricardo began an IT internship with Equinox. After four months, the CIO offered Ricardo a full-time position, and he has now been with the company for 14 years.
Ricardo and his team are responsible for looking after all of Equinox’s public and private servers, including the company’s email and phone systems. He beings his day at 8 AM and works through requests that make their way to his desk. From there, Ricardo continues with current and pending IT requests while also overseeing his team in their own projects.
“If you’re coming in to an interview for IT, make sure you know your stuff.”
“One project I found challenging and am very proud of was our migration over to Office 365. It was quite an undertaking, given the timeframe, but I’m very proud of how the team motored through the project and overcame everything to build a much more stable system for all.”
