As CEO of Red Earth Systems, Jay Wade not only keeps the business running, but also brings over 25 years of industry experience to the company. Upon graduation from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor's in Business Administration, Mr. Wade co-founded Wade Systems in 1988 as a value-added-reseller of computer hardware, software and services.

In April 1999, Wade Systems was acquired by Innovative Capital, LLC., and Jay moved on to pursue other interests, subsequently co-founding several other technology-related businesses, including Red Earth.
Jay is the Vice Chairman of the International SeaKeepers Society as well as a submarine pilot. In his time away from the office, he enjoys amateur motorcycle racing, SCUBA diving, and being an active Member of Explorer's Club.
