Our Team


Rich Stender – President

Rich Stender – President

I’m the President of WaveTrain, sometimes known in the office as the Head Fred. I bring a varied background to the team, which includes a stint in teaching after college, followed by a career change into sales where I learned about printing with a major business forms manufacturer. From there I joined a series of hardware and systems technology companies over a span of 15 years, in various roles, that helped prepare me for starting WaveTrain.

I have more than 30 years experience listening to clients’ needs and delivering the right business solutions.

I’m married with 10 kids — this count includes my son-in-law, my daughter-in-law, and five grandkids. In my spare time I found a hobby in fitness training, I like recreational running (with an occasional 5-mile race to see how I’m doing), and I particularly enjoy being on the beach in the summer with a good book.

I’m the guy at WaveTrain creating and implementing the projects. After working as an engineer out of college for 2 years, I took a very impressive job selling and producing residential paint jobs. Though this didn’t seem to be my calling, I did love the sales and marketing end of it. After completing this career stop, I started up with SVO, Inc. in 2007 which has since morphed into WaveTrain.

I’m constantly learning about sales and working with the technical aspects of integrated marketing. I especially enjoy working with our clients and meeting new ones. The commitment we have at WaveTrain — to making sure the client gets the best possible service, quality and consistency — is important to me.

I’m married with a 2-year-old daughter and 13-month-old twins who I’m happy to say take up the majority of my free time. If I’m not running around with my family or working, surfing takes the cake followed by everything automotive in a close second.

Hi. I’m the accounting department at WaveTrain. I process all of our billing for our clients, handle all aspects of the finance end of the business and balance all accounts to the penny (literally, ask Rich).

I learned my craft working in the automotive industry, for car dealerships in New Jersey, prior to joining SVO, Inc. in 1999 and now WaveTrain.
