Ric Lumbard

Executive Director

Executive Bio

As a veteran of over 25 years in the telecommunication sector, Ric Lumbard has served executive leadership in the private sector as Chief Technology Officer and telecom management; and in the non-profit world of International Missions and Aid.

A passion for the K-12 education sector stems back to 1986 in his service as technology manager for Chandler Unified School District in Arizona.  Lumbard and his wife returned back to Iowa to work for the Cedar Rapids Community School District and the Grant Wood Area Education Agency.  Moving to the private sector, he then worked in Voice, Data, and Communication management for the Raytheon Corporation with national telecommunication responsibilities.  His experience expanded into the carrier sector at USWEST Communications, later to serve as Chief Technology Officer for a legal Telecommunication services provider.

Lumbard left the telecom sector briefly to serve leadership as CEO for an emerging International Missions organisation, returning to the industry four years later. He still serves as a weekend volunteer communicator, leader, and instructor to organisations dedicated to helping people.

Lumbard joined the Iowa Communications Network (ICN) in 2006, served in the Business Services Bureau, then later the Operations and Engineering Bureau as the Director of Network Operations and Engineering.   In January 2014, he served as ICN’s Acting Executive Director during the extended absence and eventual resignation of his predecessor. Lumbard led the ICN until the Iowa Telecommunications and Technology Commission (ITTC) completed its public Executive Director search and appointed Lumbard the new Executive Director in September 2014.

At a personal level, he volunteers as a national communicator inspiring non-profit organisations to make a difference in the fight against Human Trafficking. He has a passion for aviation, holding commercial certification in both fixed and rotor wing aircraft. Lumbard and his wife Christie have four adult children and enjoy their lives in the State of Iowa, both having spent their formative years in the Des Moines area.
