Father and Son Announce Talent Firm

Father-son duo Rick and Collin Rupp have founded Rupp Performance Management.

In December, they bought the equipment group assets from Integra Partners, Inc., which does business as Ag 1 Source.

Ag 1 Source joined the Association in 2003. Rupp Performance Management will continue that membership with a focus on recruiting in the equipment industry.

Ag 1 Source will focus on all other sectors of agribusiness.

“I am proud and excited to begin this new recruitment business with my son,” Rick Rupp said. “I have had the opportunity to help build and partner with a leader in ag recruiting for more than 18 years, and using that experience to build a new firm with Collin is a dream come true. We’re ready to help connect high quality professionals with companies in the equipment industry needing top talent.”

In a news release announcing the new company, the owners quoted Harvey Firestone: “The secret of my success is a two-word answer: Know people.”

The Rupps said that sentiment serves as the foundation of their new firm, which will be headquartered near Wichita, Kan.
