Jared joined VERSA-LOK Midwest in 2005. He enjoys outdoor sports and can be found on the bike trails or soccer fields with his kids. An avid trout fisherman who grew up on the southern Minnesota plains, he defied tradition and never kissed his first trout, which pretty much sums up his personality. His favorite hardscape features are accents such as off-the-wall combinations of hardscape features like parapets or inlays using different materials.

Joe has 15 years' experience in the hardscape industry and joined VERSA-LOK Midwest in 2017. He is a fan of hardscape fire features because he would live outside if he could. While he enjoys spending free time with his family doing outdoor activities, each night they must gently persuade him to go indoors, especially when it's cold out. A native of Burnsville, Minn., Joe attended Mankato State University.

A beer geek, Mike spends his free time brewing and experimenting, using his friends as unpaid taste-testers for his strange brews. He also coaches hockey as well as fishes and hunts with his family.

A native of Wausau, Wis., Kelly joined VERSA-LOK Midwest in 2001. He's often visiting customers on his Harley Davidson, and rides his bike as late into the season as possible. When he's not on the bike, he's spending time outdoors with family and friends, including going up to the cabin. He has a B.S. degree in golf course management from UW-Madison and his favorite hardscape project is the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis, where he can often be seen on his Harley, admiring the retaining walls from above.

He enjoys spending time fishing and boating with his family and watching his kids at soccer, hockey, lacrosse and ice skating. He secretly wishes that he could have played lacrosse in college, but it was unheard of back then. Jeremy's favorite product is the VERSA-LOK Mosaic system, for its astounding ability to complement a variety of architectural structures.

Meet Jim Freitag, VERSA-LOK Midwest's Manager

Contractor territory: west central and northwestern Wisconsin
Email

Jim has been with VERSA-LOK Midwest since 2002. Jim's father, Dick Freitag, was a long-time sales manager for VERSA-LOK Midwest, and Dick hired Jim as a sales rep, against his better judgement. It all turned out okay, as Jim buckled down to learn the ropes from Dick, who retired from VERSA-LOK in 2016 at age 81. For a time, Jim attended college out west to be near mountain skiing, eventually returning to the University of Minnesota to complete his bachelor's degree. Jim enjoys spending time outdoors with his family and is teaching his young sons to ski (although Jim tore his ACL on what he claims was a triple black diamond a couple of years ago, so his wife will be taking over the ski instructor role as the kids get older). His favorite hardscape feature is the VERSA-LOK Couch, which he installed on his own patio (see video below).
