"I have worked for some large corporate retail companies,
and it was very impersonal. This is a family-owned
organization that Lee built from nothing to where it is
today. They think of the people who work for them as
family. Actually, they consider their customers family,
and I mean family in every good sense of the word. I find
it very comfortable."
"I started in 1974 as an expediter. After about a year
and a half I became assembly plant superintendent, and
then assistant sales manager. As the company grew, I
became marketing manager. And then we started a training
program and tours, and for the last 21 years I've been
involved in that."
"We get homeowners, builders, dealers and architects in
here from all over the world, not just the U.S. I enjoy
people, and I get a great deal of satisfaction from
helping them better understand the companies and their
products. I think that's where most of the satisfaction
comes from; in being happy in what you do."
