Cari Richer Ross
Director of IT and Project Manager

My family made its way to Cleveland years ago via Chicago and New York and I consider it my official hometown despite a few more moves through Chicago, Pennsylvania, and South Africa. As they say, once you get CLE in your system you always make your way back. I do love traveling to different cities and countries for vacation, but I find virtually everything I want and need right here and it’s all so easily accessible, making it the perfect place to live and raise a family.

I love how CLE has a big city feel on a smaller city scale. I can fit in a game of golf followed by a board meeting, dinner overlooking the beautiful Lake Erie, and a Broadway show in just one day.

My husband and I have two kids, recently graduated from college and two golden retrievers. We are captivated by all of Cleveland’s professional sports and love playing our own sports all year-round including: paddle tennis, golf, pickle ball, skiing, biking, and hiking with the dogs. Since all four seasons are exceptionally beautiful here, we try to be outside, enjoying them as much as possible, especially by wrapping up the day at one of the amazing local restaurants, pubs, or breweries. When not playing sports, I love to garden, cook, needlepoint, play with technology and read.

At EA, I get to share my love of Cleveland and all it has to offer in combination with my passion for IT.  As anyone who knows me says: a job doesn’t get much better than that!
