Jason Henderberg has worked in almost every aspect of the commercial printing industry during a career spanning over 25 years. He is the third generation of his family to work for commercial printers in an operations management capacity. Along the way, his former side-company Fast Lane Art was founded in 2002 and concentrated on custom printing and artwork for the auto racing community. By focusing on niche markets of interest, he became known for his helpful service and quality.
In 2012 he turned the focus of the company into a more benevolent endeavor. With a desire to give back to the community, Jason shifted gears and made the primary goal of the group to seek out deserving charitable organizations in need of assistance. Helping others that are already filling a community void is done by improving their marketing materials, streamlining processes, and assisting with leadership strategies. These pillars are vital business concepts that are often unattainable in a volunteer or not-for-profit charity.
Jason was quoted as saying: "After witnessing the spontaneous organic growth of local charity, R-Community Bikes, it struck me how much can be achieved when like-minded people band together. I saw that each person contributed what they had an abundance of weather it was time, knowledge, or materials. As an avid cyclist, I left their facility energized and wanting to do my part in some way.''
With limited free time, his search immediately honed in on his printing industry and business experience. "'This was something that I knew well and could provide easily. It was also something that I knew would be of great benefit to any type of charitable organization. A universal concept with the goal of helping as many individuals or organizations who are in need of my services as possible"
As his business offerings expanded in 2018 and beyond, so have the types of pro-bono donations. Today small non-profits have benefitted from his decades of business leadership advice, virtual tours, judgment collections and other non-printing help. Pay it forward, do the right thing, call it what you want. Helping others feels good.
