Ken Kroeker spent seventeen years at the Omaha National Bank (now U.S. Bancorp), the last nine years he was Trust Investment Chair before co-founding Lawson Kroeker Investment Management in 1986. He holds a B.A. Education, University of Nebraska (Kearney), and an M.A. Finance, University of Nebraska. Mr. Kroeker continues to generate investment ideas over all strategies drawing from his 40+ years of investment management experience.
Reflecting on the company’s journey, now 30-plus years in the making, Ken says: “When we started we said it would be a permanent firm. Frank and I owned stock in the company and we’ve sold that to Tom Sudyka and Bruce Van Kooten, both of whom had a strong history with Lawson Kroeker. And they’ve selected a few to sell it to as they move it forward, and it keeps going like that – instead of selling out the business to another investor or merging to another firm.”
