SENIOR PARTNER / C.E.O
Bart Bushong is the Senior Partner and CEO for RFX Technologies. He married his high school sweetheart, Lori, after college in June of 1993. They have two awesome children, James (Jamie), and Jenna.
Bart is not what you would call a "tech" guy other than the fact that he likes gadgets and learning about all the newest cutting edge stuff. Bart's role in the company is that of operations. He began his fascination with business at the age of nine when he realized people would actually give him money if he worked for them. That is when he started cutting grass using the old style lawn mower; you remember the one without the engine?
From his early beginnings, Bart found that those who worked the hardest, often got rewarded through promotion and responsibility. From the time he entered the workforce he began moving up the ladder. While attending the University of Kentucky he worked full time in a management role for a national chain and later became one of the youngest General Managers for an international chain. Throughout his career Bart has gained experience in management, sales, purchasing, financial consulting, negotiations, training, and has lead a few seminars. Bart has helped grow and run million dollar companies in both the Service and Retail sectors in the capacity of CEO and CFO.
Apart from the financial side of operations at RFX Technologies, Bart really enjoys meeting people and working with them to achieve the technology goals of their various companies. His years of experience both inside the company and out have given him the ability to understand the various ins and outs of using technology to advance business while keeping a watchful eye on the bottom line. He has been involved in various technology planning and budget meetings for several of his clients. Helping a client to achieve their goals with the budget that they have is one of the things that Bart finds most rewarding.
Bart currently serves on the board of Friend for Life, a cancer support group, where he is also the Technology Chair. After losing his mother to cancer in 2008, at the young age of 62, Bart wanted to make sure he was involved. Friend for Life is an organization that his mother held dear and she was an active volunteer with them throughout her battle.
In the fall of 2008 Bart joined the Louisville Downtown Rotary as another way to give back. Since being there, he has supported Scout-O-Rama, deParty for dePaul and Middle School Connection. He is looking forward to being part of an organization that works to serve the community both locally, nationally and internationally.
Over the years Bart has been a scout leader, a coach for soccer, basketball, tee ball and coach pitch. Bart also works to be active in his faith. "Lori and I think one of the best things we can give to our kids besides love, is a solid foundation in faith. What they do with their lives from there is up to them. We hope that by living and setting examples and not just using words, they will get that foundation."
If you would like to speak to Bart regarding your company's needs, he can be reached in the office at 502.742.2550.×

BUSINESS DEV. MANAGER
Brian joined the RFX team in the spring of 2012. As our Business Development Manager, he brings a unique set of interpersonal and professional skills to the table. Since his older brother is a computer guru, he has grown up around technology and always felt comfortable around geeks. This is incredibly important because he, being only part-geek, has to effectively navigate the deep, binary waters of Geekdom on a daily basis just to survive.
Brian grew up in Oldham County and joined the Army Reserves in 2003. He has deployed to Afghanistan and Pakistan in support of Humanitarian Aid Operations and Operation Enduring Freedom. Having progressed steadily in his career in the military he is now a Warrant Officer and flies helicopters for the Army. He reached his 10 year mark in July, 2013.

Matt got his start in technology at a young age, with a working knowledge of MS-DOS, Windows 3.0 and some QuickBasic experience already under his belt by age 12. His primary interest was in customization and enhancement of existing systems, as well as graphic design.
Starting off in the graphic design field after high school, Matt quickly progressed into web development, and then web-based applications. By 2007, Matt had taken the role of CTO for a start-up company, where he developed content management, relationship management, student tracking & retention, financial aid tracking and other web-based database-driven systems for businesses.
Matt prefers to spend his free time outdoors, with family and friends, or in the garage tinkering with gadgets. His passion for rodents is well known - if there's a squirrel in your beta site, you can bet Matt was involved.×
Quinton is a Senior Designer on the RFX Web Development team. He is a twenty-two year old designer/developer that has been working in the web industry from an early age. He has been developing websites practically since childhood, always quickly adapting with the ever-changing world of design. He is never complacent and always pushing himself to do better. As Senior Designer, Quinton's strongest skills lay on the front end, preferring to focus on design and user experience, but don't let that fool you, he has plenty of back end chops as well.
Outside of work, Quinton is a big sports junkie, so in his spare time if he's not catching the game, he's probably venturing outside, playing pickup basketball, or playing the occasional video game.×

NETWORK SUPPORT ADMINISTRATOR
Sean grew up in Louisville and graduated from Louisville Male High School. He has always had an interest in electronics, but in middle school shifted his focus to music. Once he discovered that he could create and publish music with an array of technology related components. This led him into creating many different types of music and even work on other forms of media, such as radio commercials and sound design, for video production. In addition to his work on the Support Desk at RFX, he has recently started to DJ at weddings, parties, and other events. He has found that, through music, he has started to learn more about networking and even basic web design to showcase his work.
Sean says that working with technology has never felt like a job, because he loves the work that he’s able to do for RFX, and his fellow team members that he works with. Many of his previous jobs have been around the service industry, although he says he never really sought a career in customer service. He has found that he enjoys talking with people and troubleshooting any type of issue. This is also giving him direction with a new interest in mobile app design and programming for embedded systems. Sean says he’s always aware that there is much to learn and that he’s ready for whatever comes his way.×

Teddy met his lovely wife, Lora, back in college and they have been happily married since 2009. They have a beautiful 2 year old daughter, Maisie. Teddy would tell you that she is an awesome little girl who has taught him many things including how to appreciate the movie Frozen!
After graduating college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, Teddy spent time as the youth director at a church in Cleveland, Mississippi. If you ever have the chance to speak with Teddy you will learn he has a very calming tone that has a way of making you feel better even if your computer is frustrating you. We are not sure if we can accredit that to his education, experience with children, faith, or a little of all three. Regardless of why, we were so fortunate Teddy and his wife decided to make their way from Mississippi to Louisville, KY. Once at RFX, Teddy jumped in with both feet. His strong customer service skills have been a real strength of his as a support desk technician to one of our larger corporate clients.
Teddy’s next chapter at RFX Technologies has taken he and his family back to Mississippi where he is spearheading the expansion of RFX to yet another state. He is supporting a number of clients remotely while looking for opportunities to expand the overall reach of RFX.
In Teddy’s spare time he watches Frozen, enjoys disk golf and reading (and by reading he means audio books).×
