In August of 1985, Jerry Freund, along with his wife, Mary and father, Bill, founded MidAmerican Printing Systems as a print brokerage firm. With years of experience in print sales, Jerry saw an opportunity to differentiate his organization from other printing companies and in just two years, the newly successful company evolved into a manufacturer of print products, setting the stage for future growth.
In 1993, responding to the needs of the customer, the company expanded into other print-related services, adding graphic design, mail processing and finished goods fulfillment to its offerings. Today, as a $9 million company with more than 40 employees (and third-generation Freund family members on staff), this family-owned and operated business has become a one-stop print solutions center catering to some of Chicago’s largest institutions, in addition to hundreds of small businesses throughout the region.
Jerry’s vision for MidAmerican is to continually focus on what they do best: offer customers a quality product, on-time delivery and to always exceed their expectations. In addition, he and his staff stay educated on the industry’s rapidly changing technology and remain competitive in an increasingly demanding marketplace.
Jerry’s academic background includes a B.S. Degree in Business Management from Quincy College in Illinois. He is currently a member of the American Marketing Association and resides on the Executive Board of the Chicago Postal Customer Council.
