David Ritter is an experienced technology infrastructure project manager who retired from AT&T in Saginaw after 23 years’ service. Previously, Captain Ritter served over 12 years in the United States Air Force as a communications-computer engineering officer, following a brief year-long stint as a field engineer with Schlumberger Offshore Services in Texas and Louisiana. An active lifetime volunteer, David has served on several non-profit boards of directors: locally, at the Midland Center for the Arts; and nationally, for a veteran-based employee resource group at AT&T. David holds a bachelor of engineering degree from Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey, and earned a master of science degree in information systems from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Joining the Michigan Thumb Chapter in October 2004, David earned his PMP certification in September 2005. He hopes to return to work as a consultant for several years before making his retirement "permanent", and is privileged to serve the MTC at this point in his career. David and his wife, Teresa, live in Midland, MI, where he enjoys choral singing and community theater.
