Leadership Team

John Rupp
President and
Chief Executive Officer

John Rupp created in the early 2000s. It was the result of his lifelong passion for weather, climate and applied statistics which led to the development of the useful analytical tool related to agriculture. He has a background in Meteorology, simulation modelling and database administration. These particular set of skills were useful in creating this unique weather related analytical prediction system. Over time this development effort transitioned from desktop computers into a Linux based implementation in the cloud. The website and its charts and data are designed to help anyone interested in an objective daily forecast of the production of corn for the United States.

Mr. Rupp has multiple degrees in Meteorology as well as being Oracle Database Professional Certified. This has given Mr. Rupp a unique approach blending Applied Science with Computer Science.
