Dexter “Dex” Austin, Jr., Director of Business Development


“Time is our most precious resource, I am driven to maximize time in every way possible for myself as well as everyone I work, play and live with.

The greatest joy in my professional life is working with great people and delivering successful and amazing partnerships based on value, respect and collaboration. The most important part of my professional story lies within the great relationships I’ve established over my career and the amount of value I have been able to deliver across my network of outstanding colleagues.

Personally, creating great memories and lots of laughs with friends and family are my motivating factors and what I love to do above all else.”

Jimmy Bryant, Director of Business & Agency Development

“Coming from a military family and marrying into a military family, my journey growing up as the son of a Marine took me from the east coast to the west coast. My travels provided the calling to move into the supply chain industry where real world solutions drive a demanding industry. Since joining the Rockfarm team with my experience in the truckload brokerage market, I have been able to bring my career experiences to my role as Rockfarm’s Agency Business Manager. My sole purpose is to create a positive environment that supports the development of our agent’s business. Technology is rapidly changing how we engage with our customers and carriers. That said, we can never forget the personal dynamic that drives meaningful relationships in both our personal and professional lives.  My goal with our current and future agent partners is to create a best in class business platform enabling success within each of our agents.”

Growing up near Camp Pendleton, California Jimmy returned to his Dad’s roots in the Midwest earning a bachelor’s degree from the University of Dayton.  An avid motorhead in his early years, Jimmy now spends his time with his daughter, taking care of the family garden and roasting his own coffee.

Nathan Budack, Account Executive


“As I began my career in supply chain I found a common thread in my desire to help shape the future and the industry that I now serve. Stepping forward to begin my career I had answered the often asked question by young people, “What do I want to do with the rest of my life?” Fortunately, the first steps into the supply chain industry helped answer that question. The experience I have gained in my career laid the groundwork to my purpose in developing solutions for shippers that create a competitive advantage for my clients. Looking ahead, the future is bright as we continue to grow as a team and create new partnerships in collaboration with our partners and clients. No matter how large or small the supply chain gap may be, we will bridge it together. How can we help?”

Nathan grew up in Southwest Wisconsin and attended college at the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. Outside of Business Development with Rockfarm, Nathan spends his time with friends and family, bass fishing on the Mississippi River, hunting, and hitting the links. 

Nicole Rhodes, Business Development Coordinator


“I started my career in banking and was in this field for 30 years. I managed branches in the Northwest region of Illinois, and I trained and developed our staff in sales and customer service. The best part about my career in banking was sales. I love meeting new people and helping them succeed in their business. I pride myself on customer service and taking excellent care of our customer. I expect a quick turn-a-round to questions and issues I have, so in return I want to give my customer that same service.

I recently started a new career in the supply chain industry at Rockfarm Supply Chain Solutions. I know I have a lot to learn, but some things I bring to the table are that I’m upfront, honest and will give my all to take care of our customers. I’m looking forward to learning everything there is to know about logistics.”

I grew up in Galena, IL and attended AIC in Davenport to study Travel & Tourism. I currently reside in Waupaca, WI with my husband, Brad. In our free time, we love golfing, traveling and boating. We have four kids, two out of college, one in college and our youngest in high school. Over the years, I have served on several boards including the Galena ARC, GGMI/Visit Galena, Galena Area Chamber of Commerce, Kiwanis Club and PTK at Galena Middle School. As you can see, I enjoy volunteering and giving back! 

Kris Colin, Director of Business Development, Truckload Enterprise Sales


“In business it’s about people. It’s about Relationships” At Rockfarm, our platform is a built on an open book approach that provides our client visibility and transparency to their business.  It is those qualities that drive a partnership and build a successful relationship in any vertical.

My journey in transportation began in the trenches of an asset-based transportation company wearing many hats from Dispatcher to Load Planner, to Customer Service, to Business Development.  I believe having a front row seat in those verticals brings a perspective like no other.  I feel the experiences within those roles has provided a strong platform in creating solutions for our clients.

Joining the Rockfarm team has allowed for my 18 previous years in transportation to really bring the culmination of that experience to life.   

A native of Northwestern Illinois, in my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids and can usually be found at sporting events, boating in the summer, or spending time in Arizona in the cooler months.
