Midwestern Interactive Announces Sole CEO and COO Roles

(Joplin, MO) – Midwestern Interactive has announced the sole ownership acquisition by Matthew Johnson, who will serve as Chief Executive Officer, starting on July 1, 2022. Bart Paden will remain active on staff and transition into Chief Operations Officer.

“There is a heavy weight on co-owners of a rapidly growing business. It made sense for Midwestern that a sole leader take the helm. As we transition, my role is to support Matt as he continues to lead the way for Midwestern’s future,” said Paden.

As they look to the future, Midwestern is on track to grow at a record pace for the foreseeable future. The company currently employs 100+ people from Joplin and Springfield and anticipates providing significant economic development for their existing and future locations.
