Ryan Edward Rock is the president of Empire Ag, an agriculture industrial general contractor. He's a man of the Midwest, through and through: he was born and raised in Iowa, and when he's not working he enjoys settling near his childhood home to be close to his family. Hard work has always been a cornerstone of Ryan's life; before moving into business ownership, he served his country as well as various employers. When it comes to family, Ryan knows how to put them first: he built his business from the ground up with nothing more than a strong work ethic and determination.
