Dave Ravitch is an Army veteran who served his country as a tactical wire communications specialist. Later he served 20 years as an armor officer in the Michigan Army National Guard, retiring as a Captain.
He attended Lake Michigan College after the Army earning an associate degree in science and later continued at Sienna University where he completed his bachelor’s degree. During his time attending LMC, he worked in the Whirlpool Corporation’s video department making training videos, wiring, lighting and building sets, and operating studio cameras.
His career path took him to a position at Hallman Electronics providing 2-way radio services to government agencies and small businesses. He moved into the arena of large-scale radio systems at the South Bend Regional Airport where he became trained as their on-site technician while also earning certifications in fiber optics. He installed the airport’s first card access system, their camera system, and continued to take courses and implement other emergent technologies. After two years, recognizing there were not any options to hire someone locally to install fiber optics, card access, and security systems, he started Ravitron.
Dave keeps Ravitron’s service offerings up to date by learning from vendors and understanding that technology usually doesn’t change in leaps, but in small hops. He and his staff continually stay up to date, making sure Ravitron stays current on the latest technologies, no matter how subtle the shift.
Technology can be a great business accelerator. Dave’s approach to working with customers is relationship focused, helping business owners make good decisions about their technology so their businesses can continue to thrive while maintaining room for growth.
Dave is personally active in his community having raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for local charities and winning multiple awards for supporting the United Way of Southwest Michigan. He has also given support to Emergency Shelter Services, Benton Harbor Street Ministry, Neighbors Organizing Against Racism, Grace Christian School, The Eau Claire Band, and Benton Harbor Area Schools. In addition, his family provides an annual scholarship at Coloma High School. Dave is active with his temple, B’nai Shalom, serving on their board since 1994, as president three times and served on the board of the Jewish Federation in South Bend for 16 years where he was most recently president.
