We are gearing up for the 2010 Pipelines conference in Keystone, Colorado. We really enjoyed last years show in San Diego and are looking forward to exhibiting again this year. If you are interested in the show you can find information at ASCE.org or if you are attending, stop by our booth and say hello.
Jeff and I got back last week from the ACE ’10 show in Chicago. Jeff was in town a few days early to chair the Coatings and Linings Committee for SWPMTAC where a lot of productive work was accomplished. The conference was very well attended and we had the opportunity to catch up with some old industry friends and make a few new ones.
Congratulations to Travis Moore, our newest Technical Services Representative. Travis joined us earlier this year in a production capacity and when we realized a technical support need, Travis was one of the first we turned too. He will represent LifeLast extremely well as he hits the road to work with our partners in the industry. His primary role will be to support applicators and project start-ups. Later this year he will be taking his NACE Coating Inspector Level 1 Certification Course. Good luck Travis and congratulations on your promotion!
We are excited to welcome Mary Grothe into the LifeLast family in the role of Office Manager. Mary started on June 21st and comes to us with 8 years of account management experience and will be responsible for the management of our day-to-day operations. She is a perfect fit and we anticipate great things from her. Welcome aboard Mary!
