Multi-talented Communications Professionals with Cross-trained Thinking
Our staff consists of multi-talented communications professionals who bring the very best cross-trained thinking to the equation. They thrive in cross-functional teams — comprised of architects; engineers; graphic, industrial, and instructional designers; IT and marketing communications specialists; and organizational behaviorists among many others — because our campaigns have to work on a number of levels in order to be successfully engaging.
Jeff Klingberg, President/CEO
Jeff Klingberg is a rare marketing communications pro whose high creative vision is linked with inside engineering, technical knowledge and his ability to combine an analytical process with innovative thinking to connect products and services with people’s wants and needs. He has proved time and again that even low-gloss products will shine like diamonds to someone when they are presented right.
His inquisitive nature, knack to visualize a problem, and ability to apply the right products or services to the problem has consistently allowed Jeff to help clients resolve some of their toughest challenges while reducing components and labor, maximizing system efficiency and doubling revenues.
Jeff’s BS in mechanical engineering from UW-Platteville along with his multi-dimensional talents enables him to look at problems from many angles instead of just one. These skills have been sharpened through his over 20 years of engineering, consulting, sales, marketing and workforce development experience.
It’s these same client and work experiences that led Jeff to establish Mountain Stream Group, Inc. in 1998 so that he could provide his clients with a broader portfolio of visual, verbal and sensory communications design services — that when holistically combined leads to intelligent communications experience.
