The Ann Arbor economy is driven by the incredible business infrastructure in the area. Without the backbone provided by the University of Michigan and the essential services provided by companies like Comcast, business wouldn't be possible in the Ann Arbor region. Infrastructure that just twenty years ago was considered a luxury is now a requisite for businesses at all levels. Comcast makes those services available to everyone.
Jeff Freyer is the Vice President of Business Services for Comcast Business Class's Heartland Region, based in Plymouth, Michigan. In this role, he is the senior leader responsible for developing, facilitating and implementing strategies aimed at growing Comcast business services across Indiana, Michigan, Arkansas and Central Kentucky. Freyer currently serves on the board of directors for Midwest Technology Leaders in Michigan and TechPoint in Indiana, and was named one of Crain's Detroit Business 2011 40 Under 40. Freyer has more than 15 years of experience in the telecommunications and cable sector.
In conversation with Ann Arbor SPARK CEO Paul Krutko, the two discuss the growth of the Ann Arbor business world, from the explosion of start-ups to the investment and growth of large Fortune 500 companies in the region. They discuss the importance of regional collaboration and ensuring Michigan's continued economic growth through community outreach and business development programs.
