Rome Ntukogu is a transplant to the United States from Enugu, Nigeria. He arrived in Cincinnati at the age of 16 to attend the University of Cincinnati. After school, he entered into the service industry and bar consultation, turning around several local businesses. Those connections then allowed him to formulate a series of large scale events/music festivals around the country, and launch Far-I-Rome in 2008. Far-I-Rome pivoted to a full scale creative services company in 2013. Cincinnati is near and dear to Rome's heart, and integral to his development as an adult in The States. 

With a Master’s Degree in Engineering from Cornell University and an MBA from Xavier University, Kenny McNutt brings a mix of experience dealing with technical as well as business challenges. Prior to founding MadTree, Kenny managed a team of engineers for a major defense contractor and developed processes for tracking cost and schedule for a $10M+ program. At MadTree, Kenny is known as the man with the financial plan.
