Joey Timmer (Commerce Bank)

Born in Warren, Michigan on June 1, 1971 and raised in Littleton, Colorado starting in 1973 when my dad’s job transferred him to Denver. My mom and dad, Joe and Betty Timmer, still live in Littleton, Colorado. My only sibling, Jenn Timmer, was born in
1973 and currently lives in Dallas, Texas. Graduated from Littleton High School in 1989, Trinidad State Junior College with an Associates degree in 1991, and University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1994 where I participated in baseball.

Moved to Wichita, Kansas in February, 2000 and currently work at Commerce Bank at 21st and Tyler as the Branch Manager. My 17-year-old son, Blake, will be a senior at Northwest High School next year and is involved with a high school small group at Pathway Church. My 11-year-old daughter, Adelia, will start 6th grade at Wilbur next year, plays basketball, and is involved with Ignite at Pathway Church. Depending on the season, I help with the elementary school ministry at Pathway Church, help coach youth sports, and enjoy hanging out with my kiddo’s while they are still around the house.

Stan Krehbiel (Salon Partners LLC)

I was born and raised in Pretty Prairie, KS. I earned a Business Education degree from McPherson College and did graduate work at Wichita State and Emporia State College. I taught school for four years; the last two at El Dorado High School.
I was in the retail manufactured housing and mobile home park communities business for thirty years. When I sold the business, we had sales centers in Great Bend, Hays, Wichita, Las Vegas, New Mexico and Warsaw, MO. I was a Coleman distributor for their heating and cooling division for both manufactured housing and residential products. In 1984, I started a long distance phone business in Wichita with satellite offices in SW Missouri and Oklahoma. When we sold the company in 1989 we were the second largest long distance company in Kansas only behind AT&T.
Currently, I have 96 individual salon studios in three Kansas City locations which we lease to established stylists. We are expanding that business as we find suitable locations.

Bob Benson (The Beta Group)

I was born in Michigan City Indiana and subsequently lived and went to school in Duluth, Minnesota, Salina Kansas, Joliet Illinois, and St Louis Missouri. I have a mother and younger brother and sister in Minneapolis Minnesota. I went to high school in Joliet, and graduated from Washington University in St Louis in engineering and law. I am married to Noreen Carrocci (Newman University,) and we have lived in St Paul Minnesota, Mobile Alabama, and now Wichita. We have two sons and three grandchildren from a prior marriage, who live in St Louis.

For the first thirty years of working I was a computer analyst (when computers were room-sized), university financial executive, CIO (chief information officer), dean, professor (teaching for forty years,) and researcher in information management. I am currently a part-time faculty member at a university in Holland, and teach there regularly. For the last fifteen years I have been a consultant in strategic planning, management systems, IT portfolio management, and IT project management. I’ve co-authored three books and many book chapters and articles, most recently over 100 on, and have worked or lectured in forty states and twenty-one countries. My firm is The Beta Group, which is a strategic partner with the Cutter Consortium.

Actually, I started working as a darkroom technician while in the seventh grade. This fueled my photography interests; I estimate I’ve taken fifty thousand photographs in fifty years. I currently show work at Gallery XII and Upfront Gallery, on East Douglas. I read and review one hundred books a year and distribute a book and author ranking now covering nearly six hundred books. (Sadly, these are “pulp fiction” books, not completely serious.) I have been in over 2800 of the 3100 counties in the continental United States, and I expect to complete visiting all of them in the near future. Oh, and Noreen and I love golf and the blues. (One does wonder, though, when I’ll grow up ….)

Jamie Wise (TkFast, Inc.)

I have had many years of growing fondness and a yearning for involvement for Wichita, Kansas as I was born and raised here with a family of similar values. My early life was dedicated to the halls of the Goddard School District. Then more recently I graduated from Friends University, where I received my Bachelors in both Business Administration and Marketing.

Currently I spend my time chairing a Leads Group for the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce, sitting on the Legislative Committee for the Wichita Area Builders Association, holding the Marketing Director title for a Masonic Service Youth Organization (International Order of the Rainbow for Girls), member of the Order of the Eastern Star, and enjoying my membership to YPW (Young Professionals of Wichita).

TkFast has helped me develop a lot of the skills acquired during my four year career in sales management and computer technology support for a top 100 retail store. I look forward to using my determination, leadership, and past experience to further the image the Rotarians hold in this community.
