Disruptive Ag Tech Company Hires New CTO


BOERNE, Texas, Jan. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- HerdX is pleased to announce that Austin Adams made the move to Boerne, Texas from the San Francisco Bay Area to become HerdX's Chief Technology Officer.

Austin Adams, HerdX Inc. CTO

Adams is well qualified to accelerate the HerdX agricultural technology solution into the global market, holding over a decade of experience in leading innovative software teams. At his previous employer Adams took multiple greenfield projects from initial scoping, to research and development, to proof of concept, and ultimately to market leading products. Adams is an early adopter, leader, and contributor to the Kubernetes open source platform. He has used Kubernetes to create automation systems to help drive over a billion dollars of product sales.

Adams will be leading the HerdX technology team in implementing the HerdX solution by partnering with restaurant chains ad established grocers in the coming year.  Adams states, "I am most excited about bringing together blockchain and high security IoT to provide provenance mapping for the consumer. I am coming back to my roots working in the ag tech industry and am grateful to help lead this innovative team." Adams is already adding product innovations that will expand the company's offerings into more global markets. His skill set is also helping accelerate the implementation and commercialization of HerdX's blockchain system.



"I was looking for a top tier technology officer that could help our company's product offering grow rapidly in the U.S. and scale us faster overseas," says Ron Hicks, President and CEO of HerdX. With food traceability and tracking as a high priority for HerdX, Ron sees Austin as the ideal next step in the company's growth coming in at just the right time.

HerdX Inc. is an early stage agricultural technology company that develops products for farmers designed to reduce operational costs, improve animal health and well-being, and enable the delivery of traceable meat products to consumers. HerdX provides blockchain secure transparency for the consumer by connecting them back to the farmer through QR codes on packaging for grocers and menus for restaurants.
