As part of our 40th Anniversary celebration, we are highlighting the fantastic individuals that make Prefix what it is! This week, we meet Jason George! Jason is a member of our Program Management team and has been with the company since 2016. Jason loves 90s grunge music and he’s an avid outdoorsman. So…when he’s not managing one of the super cool projects in one of our private studios, you can usually find him hiking, fishing, or on a snowmobile trip with his Ski Doo MXZ to a variety of Michigan locations, like the Jordan River Valley, Mackinac Island, or the Old Mission Peninsula. Jason is a huge World War II history buff, having read dozens of books and watched numerous documentaries on the subject, therefore it is no surprise that travel destinations on his bucket-list include: Normandy, France and parts of Ireland and Scotland. When it comes to food, one of his favorites is Cornish Game Hen, and if he could share a meal with a famous person, he would choose Dwight D. Eisenhower. You better order extra Game Hens for Dwight Jason! Those things are small.
As part of our 40th Anniversary, we are highlighting some interesting dates in our history. This month in 2008... Ford announced that they would offer the Transit Connect, which at the time was successful in Europe. At a time when most Americans were driving marginally-efficient, full size vans and box trucks for delivery purposes, this vehicle offered American small businesses a low cost alternative and marked a significant shift in American preferences. Prefix was at the front of this American product offering, as we created all of the theme vehicles to Ford Motor Company that were revealed at the 2008 Chicago Auto Show
In celebration of our 40th Anniversary, we are highlighting some of the amazing team members who make the organization what it is! This week, we would like to introduce you to Mr. Ken Siuda. Ken is the Corporate Facilities Manager, starting with the company back in 2012. Prefix has grown dramatically during the past few years, keeping Ken and his department very busy with building new studios, moving heavy equipment, and basically keeping the bustling city of Prefix Corporation’s four buildings looking and operating efficiently. When the weather is nice, you might see Ken cruising his 2014 California Special Mustang towards his favorite spot in Michigan, the Higgins Lake area. His favorite super hero is Superman, but when asked about having lunch with someone famous, he thought it would be cool to have pizza with Luke Bryan. Most of his fellow teammates might be surprised to learn that Ken has played with the same band since 1983. He plays keyboards, bass, and sings. Wow Ken, I see a Prefix band in our future

In celebration of our 40th Anniversary, we are highlighting some of the amazing team members who make the organization what it is! This week, we introduce you a member of our Business Development team. Mr Steve Cummings has been with Prefix Corporation since 1994, and his wide ranging experience and expertise from over 24 years of working in the business has made him a respected member of the industry. Steve loves the outdoors, and weekends when he’s not traveling to industry shows like SEMA, CES, or other industry events, you can usually find him in northern Michigan fishing, hunting, or camping. One of Steve’s favorite projects at Prefix has been the PVM (Programable Vehicle Model). The PVM was patented in the early days at Prefix, and revolutionized the vehicle design process. Steve traveled internationally supporting the PVM for our automotive clients. If he could have lunch with any famous person, Steve would pick Ronald Reagan, and it would likely include ice cream, Steve’s favorite. Steve would like to travel to the South Pacific someday, find a place to fish, put on some country music, and relax. Sounds perfect Steve!!
