Meet The Rockton Connect Team
Want total financial control with less work? Our team will make it happen!
Passionate Visionary / Singer Extraordinaire (so he thinks) / Office Handyman
Mark is actually the founder and President of Rockton Software, as well as the lead software architect and designer. After years in the Microsoft Dynamics channel customizing Great Plains, Mark ventured out on his own in 1999, and Rockton Software officially planted its roots.
Surprising to some, but not to those who know him well, Mark holds a BS in Mathematics and a BFA in Theatre. This odd combination explains a lot, really. He is equally happy developing software as he is singing about Rockton pride in front of anyone who will listen. And the over-the-top trade show booths you’ve seen? Now you know why.
Mark’s passion is connecting with people and finding ways to make a difference. He aims to inspire others, enjoys volunteering and is always thinking of creative ideas to solve problems. If he had his wish, he’d be right where he is now, except he’d be a professional actor on the side. After all, his classmates did vote him “Mot likely to succeed” in junior high. He’s still not sure if that was “Most” or “Not” but he’s finally put it behind him.
Mark is happily married to Kelli Sexton, Rockton’s CEO & VP. If you’re crafty, you might have figured out that Rockton is a merger of their two last names. They have four amazing children who lovingly consume most of Rockton’s profit.
Premier Cat Herder / Super Mom / Employee Cheerleader
As Rockton’s CEO and Vice President, Kelli’s favorite role is supporting the amazing employees who are like family. Well, Mark actually is family, but everyone else is really close. She holds a B.A. in Psychology, with a minor in business, which helps her understand people both personally and professionally.
Kelli’s management background and big picture thinking serves Rockton well. She’s tenacious, yet practical, and plays a major role in the company’s strategic planning and marketing. Her mad planning skills also get put to good use when she organizes the annual employee retreat, where all this hard work is rewarded with some good old-fashioned fun.
Balancing work and family is important to Kelli, and she manages to juggle four busy kids and her commitment to Rockton without blinking (most days). In fact, her favorite superhero is Elastigirl from The Incredibles which is so fitting. She believes in valuing people for who they are and teaches her children to do the same.
Kelli is a huge public radio fan, avid reader and couldn’t live without her daily walks. And don’t tell Mark, but she secretly wants to own a small farm complete with her own pigmy goats!
Scrum Master / Wannabe Hippie / Rockton Rock Star
Here at Rockton, Jenn holds about 100 different titles on any given day. She’s a project manager, agility coach, scrum master, product development manager and keeper of the ducks in a row. She might be a self-proclaimed control freak, but her peers say she is one of the most approachable, knowledgeable and helpful go-to sources for…well…anything.
Jenn earned her BA with a focus in HR and previously worked for Microsoft. Her list of professional credentials spans a mile, including certifications in Agile Facilitation, Agile Coaching and Scrum. She’s also a Certified Microsoft Product Specialist and Microsoft Certified Business Management Specialist in Microsoft Dynamics GP, GP Financials and CRM. Let’s just say she is super qualified and call it a day.
When she’s not supporting her Rockton family, Jenn enjoys spending down time with her husband and raising three kind and compassionate children. Her passion is to add value to those around her and she loves hearing how Rockton has improved the lives of customers.
This John Lennon and Jimmy Buffet fan says if she weren’t doing this, she’d want to be a beach bum rock star who works for the Peace Corps. Rock on, Jenn.
Habitual Helper / Mom-to-all / MacGyver
If more than 30 years of software experience isn’t impressive enough, Sheila also brings decades of specialized project management, training, accounting and inventory expertise to her role as a Technical Sales Team Lead. Add her certifications and several hours of Management Information Systems courses and there isn’t much she hasn’t supported, configured, installed or taught in her career with the government, Microsoft and Rockton.
Though her title has the s-word, Sheila isn’t about high-pressure sales at all. On the phone or on site, she’s a listener and excels at finding solutions for a wide range of business challenges. And then she just sticks around forever, in the best of ways, to make sure every client is getting what they need from their software, and from Rockton. She assists with implementations and support calls too because she seriously can’t stop helping people. It might be a sickness.
Sheila joined Rockton because of the way they value and celebrate their employee family and gives back to the company in many ways. When she isn’t working with clients, she’s helping colleagues through internal implementations, brainstorming ideas to improve processes, writing blogs or KB articles, or anything else she can do to make the company even more awesome.
Known for being a persistent and tenacious problem solver, Sheila helped her husband turn his talent for cooking into a business venture to sell and market his spices and sauces. She is always volunteering and caring for others, especially as mom, stepmom and foster mom to her happily blended family of kidsand beloved golden retrievers. Though she wanted to be a nurse or police officer (and actually made it into the police academy), we are all glad she chose to help people through technology.
Trusted Advisor / Workaholic / Golfer
Starting her career in Professional Services for the first 11 years out of college, she hit the ground running by attaining licenses in all lines of Insurance and various licenses for Investment Sales. Leaving the Insurance, Investment, and Banking world for a marketing position at one of the largest John Deere dealers in North America and spending the next 3 years building a strong brand, proving ROI on Agriculture and Construction Equipment sales, and supporting the strong execution of a marketing strategy. The longing for sales brought her to the software world in 2006 where she found a love for cutting edge technology. Supporting Microsoft sales and marketing efforts for the past 14 years with a focus on Enterprise Resource Planning software for the past 9, she brings a well-rounded background to every conversation she has. She has a tremendous amount of pride in providing quality over quantity and is extremely customer-focused always looking out for their best interest.
Driven, Determined, Competitive, Confident, Responsible, Inspiring, Self-Starter, and Enthusiastic are the best words to describe her. She gets projects completed quickly and successfully while maximizing the performance of the team in the process. I take an active and direct approach to obtaining results. I am practical and the more difficult the challenge the more focused I become. She is outgoing and optimistic. She has a metered sense of urgency to get things done now but not without some planning and thought. Change is fine if it is needed. She prefers a fast pace environment but not one that is frantic or chaotic. Unexpected events don’t drive her crazy, they are something of a welcomed change. She works well in a variety of environments and on a wide selection of projects, subject matter, or tasks. She embraces the opportunity for continuous learning whether it’s a new product, service, or tool to get the job done more efficiently. Change is constant, and you have to rise up.
Lisa is the newest member of our Rockton Family and will lead the Acumatica practice Sales. However, rather than focus on selling technology, she is focused on listening to the needs of our customers, solving problems for people, and acting as a trusted advisor and valued resource. She brings a strategic mind, creative thinking, and enjoys honest conversations. She is here to understand your needs and find solutions to address them.
Outside of work, Lisa enjoys spending time with her husband, son, and 2 daughters. She is an avid golfer as well and enjoys her daily walks with her new puppy Lucy.
