A Hutchinson-based grain accounting software firm has promoted Brad Ryan as its Director of Development.

AgTrax offers an array of comprehensive, reliable integrated software programs, and complete systems designed specifically for grain elevators, fertilizer companies, cooperatives, ethanol production facilities, feed stores, agronomy service providers, petroleum providers and other types of businesses in agriculture.

President Gayle Lewis announced Thursday that Ryan would be taking over in the product development department.

“Brad has been an integral component to the forward-facing direction of AgTrax since the day he arrived,” Lewis said in a release. “His knowledge of the code, software, staff, customer base and industry will serve him well as he steps into this new position.”

Ryan is a Wichita State University alumnus, and has been with AgTrax for more than seven years. During that time, he has served in multiple roles within the company.

Lewis said Ryan brings a diverse blend of agribusiness and leadership roles to the company, and now to his new position.

“We are in an exciting season at AgTrax,” Ryan said in the release. “Leading the outstanding development team that is already in place as we continue to introduce new API technologies and strategic partners to our existing network will provide our customer base with a significant set of cross-functional applications going forward.”
