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."
