Matthew Meyer, Director of Business Development

In over my 15 years of being in the transportation industry, I have been fortunate to have been surrounded by great people who want the best for the customer day in and day out. Building a lasting and impactful partnership is key to a strong relationship in this industry. My goal is to foster a long-term relationship with our customers that helps meet their needs and improves their supply chain.  At Rockfarm we have a team dedicated to improving our customer’s supply chain and helping them grow. I couldn’t be more excited to be part of a team ready to assist our customers!

In my free time, I can be found running to different athletic events for my 2 children and in the summer can be found at a baseball field.

I reside in Avon, MN with my wife Nicole and two children.

“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 businesses. I pride myself on customer service and taking excellent care of our customers. I expect a quick turnaround 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 I 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!

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 for my purpose of developing solutions for shippers that create a competitive advantage for my clients. 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 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.

“In business, it’s about people. It’s about Relationships” At Rockfarm, our platform is 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.  Having a front-row seat in those verticals brings a perspective like no other.  I feel the experiences within those roles have provided a robust platform for creating solutions for our clients.

Joining the Rockfarm team has allowed 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. I can usually be found at sporting events, boating in the summer, or spending time in Arizona in the cooler months.

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 brought 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 agent.
