Ron started with Colorado Tri-Flo Systems after moving back from New Zealand in 2016.
Ron spent nearly 30 years in hi-tech strategy, marketing, and product management. Moving to operations in a manufacturing environment was an exciting transition. Ron’s experience lends itself to Tri-Flo’s mission of being the premier choice for thermal airflow solutions for numerous industries.
In his spare time Ron lives vicariously thru his children’s competitive sports, listens to Kiwi music, plays poker, and is an avid fan of the Denver Broncos. He and his wife love to travel.

Ethan Hepp – Production
Ethan has been with Tri-Flo for 2 years. He supervises the assembly of the Eradi-Flo product line.
In his spare time Ethan enjoys the mountains, good pipe tobacco, and whiskey.
Gretta – Head of Security
Gretta is a Cane Corso who looks mean, but she is really a big sweetheart. She’ll greet you with a big growl and a bone in her mouth. While interoffice romance is frowned upon, Gretta and Wicket have a thing for each other.
Gretta is Pete’s dog.
Wicket – Security
Wicket was a rescue dog. We think he is part border collie and beagle. He sure does have herding down pat. He and Gretta take part in team meetings sitting under the conference table chewing bones.
Wicket gets his name from the sport of cricket. Ron’s son played cricket for 4 years when they lived in New Zealand.
Gunther – Security
Another rescue dog, Gunther is the newest addition to the Tri-Flo security team. He is a blue healer and is Gretta’s brother. While Gunther only works part-time, when he’s here he tends to mix it up with the rest of the security team.
