Phil has worn many hats over the years for LMI, he started and managed our first VDOT contract, back when we were trying to figure things out. As the VDOT NOVA got under control we bid and won other contracts in the NOVA area which he managed. After several years managing the NOVA office Phil wanted a change and became LMI’s purchasing manager. Phil has helped LMI buy at the right price and quantity in every category of purchases we make.

At the beginning of 2018 Phil announced his desire to retire and provided 2 months’ notice. Unfortunately, we did not have a replacement on board by March 1 st without being asked Phil volunteered to continue working until the position is filled. Instead of being retired Phil stayed on throughout all of March and what will amount to ½ of April. Phil’s last day with the company will be April 12th . LMI will miss Phil but wishes him many years of health and enjoyment in retirement.
