The Kansas City Business Journal honors Pioneer Services for financial performance, innovation, and sustained success

The Kansas City Business Journal has named Pioneer Services, a division of MidCountry Bank, a finalist for the 2010 "Champions of Business" awards. Finalists are judged on financial performance, innovation, and sustained success, with all submissions and information reviewed by independent auditors.

"Through a combination of smart planning, hard work, and great people all focused on the same goal, we had a successful 2009," said Karen Von Der Bruegge, chief marketing officer for Pioneer Services. "It's an honor to have that success recognized by the Business Journal."

Winners will be announced at a luncheon on June 3, 2010, and will be featured in a special Business Journal supplement June 4.
