MEET OUR TEAM
HJ & Kristi Ackerman
HJ came to work with his dad in 1984. Kristi quit teaching and joined the business in 2010. HJ loves to do all his own ordering, finding the best prices for his customers, while Kristi keeps the books straight. They enjoy working together and visiting with all the new and returning customers.
Steve has been working two days a week since 2014. He retired from the Feed Lot and just needed a little something to do. He is our organizer! He keeps the stock rooms clean and tidy, and stays busy all the time. We can call on him anytime to fill in where needed!
Shelby has been working remotely for us since 2019. As HJ & Kristi's daughter, she grew up working along side her family in the Beloit store and all her in-store experience makes the remote work possible! She handles all accounts payable, payroll, social media accounts, and has a extensive background in HR. It's great she can be a part of the family business all the way from Australia!
Tristen came back to apprentice at the Beloit Store in 2017. As is HJ & Kristi's nephew, he grew up working in our Osborne store along with his dad and brother. Tristen is a hard worker, and he strives to do his best with every customer. He is motivated to learn the office part of this business to keep it running into the third generation.
Cameron started with us in 2017. He is our muscle man! He stocks more feed than anyone and hauls out all the heavy things for customers. Cameron is one of our servicemen on the rental equipment, and continues to learn the in's and out's of the backroom. He is always willing to do whatever we ask!
When Bennett joined our team in 2002, he brought a lot of farm and mechanical knowledge with him. He was raised on a farm and continues to farm in his off-time. He knows our rental equipment inside and out, and can repair almost anything! He has been a wonderful asset to our store.
Steve has been working for us since 2018. Steve is no stranger to the retail business and we are fortunate to have him at Ackerman Supply. He farms on the side so the understands the farming industry. Steve has never met someone he can't talk to, so he is great at helping all customers with what they need!
Ryan has been working in our Osborne store since February 2018. He is an extremely hard worker and has been promoted to manage our Osborne location. Not to mention, he loads all the heavy stuff, displays end caps, and is great with customers. There is nothing this young man won't do!
Clark joined our team in 2020. He retired from the United States Postal Service and now works part-time with us. He has brought a really great attitude and excellent customer service. As he is quick to adapt to any situation, he's a great addition to the team!
Michelle has been working at our Osborne Store since 1999 and is a tremendous employee. She goes over and beyond what is necessary to make sure customers are well taken care of. Michelle knows a lot about hardware and she can mix & match paint like a pro!
Rebekah started in 2020 and has blended well with our other Osborne employees! As she also works hard and does what she needs to get the job done. We are excited to see her grow and become an integral part of the team.
Jude has been working at our Osborne store since 2004. Jude probably knows everyone in Osborne! She is the smiling face you will meet when you come in the door. She is friendly, kind, and knows where to find exactly want you need.
"Georgy" is the store cat at Osborne. He loves to hide out around the store and is loved by everyone!
