One of KC's 40 Under Forty

Jason Nees named to list recognizing Kansas City's up and coming business leaders

Ingram's magazine's "40 Under Forty" award recognizes those in the Kansas City business community who have shown leadership within their businesses and the community at large. Pioneer Services is proud to announce that one of its own, Investor Relations Officer Jason Nees, was named to this distinguished list for 2012.

"As a businessman, volunteer, parent, or mentor, we must try to make a difference in the lives of others and our community through our service and resources," Nees said. "It's a responsibility we all owe to the communities, and to a nation, that have given us so much."

Nees, a former U.S. Army infantryman, began his career with Pioneer Services nearly two years ago and has made an immediate impact in his role managing all retail and institutional investor relationships, increasing the base of the former by more than 60 percent and the latter by 50 percent. He also contributes to the community by helping Autism Speaks and Operation Breakthrough.

"We've always said that our people are our most important asset, which is why we go out of our way to hire the best and the brightest," said Joe Freeman, president of Pioneer Services, and a 2006 "40 Under Forty" recipient. "This way of running our business has always been the source of our success, and it's fantastic when one of our own is recognized for contributions to our company and community. Jason has definitely earned this honor, and we couldn't be more proud."
