Founder & President PATRICK GOTTSCH Founder & President Born and raised in Elkhorn, Nebraska, Patrick grew up on his family's farm and cattle feeding operation and learned first-hand the importance rural America plays in the everyday lives of Americans. After attending college at Sam Houston State University in Texas, he moved to Chicago in 1977 and worked as a commodity broker on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange until 1982. Patrick then returned to his home state of Nebraska where he started E.T. Installations, a company that sold and installed C-band home satellites. Working with Birdview Satellite Broadcast and Communication Association (SBCA), E.T. Installations introduced over 2,000 satellites into the Midwest and was recognized as the nation's largest privately owned home satellite retailer in 1987. In March 1991, Patrick moved to Fort Worth, Texas and served as the Director of Sales for Superior Livestock Auction from 1992 to 1996. Superior Livestock Auction was the first to introduce satellite video marketing to the livestock industry and has since grown to become the largest livestock auction enterprise in the United States. Pulling all of these experiences together, Patrick decided to dedicate himself full-time to creating a 24-hour rural television network. Patrick has two daughters-Raquel and Gatsby. Prior to joining her father's (Patrick Gottsch) company, she worked at NRG Media in Omaha as Promotions Assistant to 8 radio stations while mentoring and supervising over 50 interns, among many other responsibilities.
"The beauty of rural America in high-definition is stunning," said Patrick Gottsch, founder and president of Rural Media Group, Inc., owners of both RFD-TV and RFD HD.
