James Imaging Systems Owner Receives 2012 Governor's Trailoblazer Award

Feb. 1, 2012


Lola A. Tegeder, CEO/Chairman of James Imaging Systems, Inc., Brookfield, has been selected as one of several recipients of the 2012 Governor’s Trailblazer Award for Women in Business. The distinction recognizes women pioneers in the business community. Kate Hill, President, Heartland Information Research, Inc., in Wauwatosa, nominated her for the award.

James Imaging Systems, Inc., is a family-owned provider of integrated document technologies. Lola’s husband, James Tegeder, was one of the founders of the company in 1977 and she took over its leadership after his death seven years later. Under her stewardship, James Imaging Systems has grown significantly. The company now serves an eight-county area and specializes in the sales, leasing and servicing of multifunctional copiers, fax machines, and wide format and laser printers. They also consult on print fleet management to optimize workflow and reduce costs.

“We provide equipment and advice that streamlines a company’s information workflow and enables them to run their business more profitably and efficiently,” stated Tegeder. “We strive to provide more choices for our clients and add value by providing customized solutions that address their unique business needs. Our success and continued strong growth has resulted from motivated and dedicated employees focused on providing superior services and solutions for our clients in a timely manner. The real keys are our top quality people and responsiveness based on our local presence.”

“Private sector businesses are key to our state’s job creation strategies,” said Gov. Scott Walker. “We’re fortunate to have many women who have started a business and now employee their fellow Wisconsinites. I hope that these Trailblazers can serve as role models to other women who are considering opening a business and creating jobs.
Wisconsin women business owners play a leading role by starting and sustaining businesses, exploring markets, creating jobs and stimulating local economic growth."

The Governor’s Trailblazer Awards celebrate women’s long history of entrepreneurship; and deep roots in Wisconsin’s business community. Tegeder and 13 other women were awarded the 2012 distinction. To date, the Trailblazer Awards have recognized 44 Wisconsin woman-owned businesses across 21 counties.

The Governor’s Trailblazer Awards are sponsored by the Office of the Governor; Office of the Lieutenant Governor; Wisconsin Women’s Council, M& I, a part of BMO Financial Group; Wisconsin Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) Certification Program (Wisconsin Dept. of Administration); Wisconsin Women’s Business Initiative Corporation (WWBIC); The WIDGET Source, and Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce.
