Jerry Howell

Jerry Howell is president and founder of Midwest Business Exchange, Ltd, a 22 year-old corporation specializing in non-cash transactions.  In Kind Gift Association is a result of his belief that much of our nation’s wealth, or bounty, is not in the form of cash, but rather excess inventory, equipment, or real estate.  After the terrorism of 9/11, Howell was instrumental in raising enough non-cash donations to cover a 4-year, full-ride scholarship to a surviving child of 9/11.   Howell graduated from Michigan State University, is married with two nearly adult children.
