Meet Ron: Our race car enthusiast!

Ron Shurie joined Howard Tech as a team leader in October 2016 when Howard Tech merged Micro Performance Inc. (MPI) into its operations. As President of MPI, Ron built a strong reputation for excellent customer service. Ron continues to focus on his clients and business relationships in the greater Annapolis area and migrates clients into standard Howard Tech solutions where possible. Ron’s friendliness, humor, wisdom, and professionalism add great value to our clients, team, and working environment. 

At my previous job… I ran an IT business for 23 years

I’m in to technology because… I find It to be challenging, interesting and I seem to have a knack for it.

I am very proud that… I raised two lovely daughters to be quite capable on their own.

Some of my favorite things include… Spending weekends teaching people how to negotiate a racing track at high speed, and spending time working on cars.

I could not live without… People.

My favorite gadget is… All the tools in the toolbox.

One skill I wish I had is…To snow ski better.

My favorite motivational quote is: Do a little better each day!

A funny family story is…one I cannot repeat in print.

A cause I am passionate about is… The conservation of the environment now and for future generations.

If I won the lottery, the first thing I would do is… call my investment manager (then get a good attorney)!

I’d like to learn how to…be a chef.

If I could be any fictional character, I would be… Tom Swift. 

The last experience that made me a stronger person was… losing five people in my life in five weeks.

I’d love to travel to….Europe, Asia, and the southern hemisphere.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… with my deceased mother.

And last but not least, Ron shared that he really enjoys working at HTA because of the people.
