Agricultural roots have shaped the lives and professional endeavors of Midan founders, Michael Uetz and Danette Amstein. With decades of marketing experience and meat industry insight, they joined forces in 2004 to form Midan Marketing. Starting from small offices above a garage and in a basement, today the Midan team is more than 100 strong – and growing – operating out of Chicago, Ill., and Mooresville, N.C., with additional satellite offices nationwide.

We embrace and respect team members of all religious beliefs. Everyone is welcome here.

As followers of Jesus Christ, Danette Amstein and Michael Uetz, the principals of Midan Marketing, strive to live in a manner consistent with the precepts and doctrines of their faith which are grounded in the Bible, and operate Midan Marketing in accordance with these principles.

While their personal and deeply held beliefs may be referenced from time to time, such as prayer during company gatherings, participation in any religious expression at Midan Marketing is entirely voluntary. The right to disagree with the statements reflecting their beliefs is one that is protected under law, as is exercising one’s own right to believe — and one we uphold earnestly.

No matter who you are, no matter what you believe: Our doors are always open to you.
