About Us

Advanced Tech Enterprises was formed in 1988 in Tulsa, Oklahoma by Ric Havlik. A.T.E. was a one-man shop that became built on many hours of hard work and perseverance. Prior to A.T.E. Ric lived in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and worked for Johnson Controls. Later he relocated his wife and kids and took an opportunity with an IT company in Dallas, Texas. After working them for in Dallas he then relocated again to head up their Oklahoma Branch. Ric has always had the desire to go out on his own and that is the reason for founding A.T.E. Ric continued to build clients and sustain strong relationships, thus building a larger client base by word of mouth advertising, always keeping your best interests in mind. Throughout the years Ric has gained numerous certifications and continues to lead the direction of the company.

Advanced Tech Enterprises is a family owned and operated company and in 2006 Ric’s son Jay Havlik joined the team full time. Jay Havlik has a degree from the University of Tulsa and joined ATE to run the daily operations.
