Rock Roberts: Building on Four Decades of Dedication

February 20, 2018

When Robert (Rock) Roberts started working for Lee Company in December 1977, he knew his bosses had high expectations. “When they hired me, I told them I could do the work or they could let me go,” Roberts says. “Forty years later, I’m still here.”

Still here – and still doing the work! During his time with Lee Company, Roberts has handled a wide variety of duties, including establishment of our first fabrication shop, and has won numerous safety awards and two awards of excellence in construction. Today, as a Field Superintendent, Roberts uses the experience gained over the past four decades to train others just learning the trades. In mentoring these new hires, Roberts is carrying on a proud Lee Company tradition: passing knowledge along, so all employees can thrive.

“Many of the men and women I have worked with here have become more than co-workers; they are family,” Roberts says. “My job now is to train our new employees in the proper and safe techniques to work and install equipment and piping. It’s one of the most rewarding aspects of my job – being able to prepare the next generation of Lee Company.”

Richard Perko, President and CEO of Lee Company, says Roberts has been an “incredible asset” in the field and, for the past 11 years, as an instructor for Lee Company University, a free technical training school open to employees.

“Robert has taught classes in HVAC, piping, plumbing and now welding,” Perko says. “I can’t say enough about someone who would not only give 40 years of their life to Lee Company, but also give so much time teaching others. That is the definition of servant leadership!”

Congratulations to Rock Roberts for creating a legacy of dedication and service, and “Thank You!” for building your career at Lee Company!

Lee Company Extends Technology Leadership with Full-Service Portal

November 07, 2017

New site allows customers to request service, book appointments and track progress online

  • Lee Company launches 24/7 portal for comprehensive, convenient customer service
  • Easy-to-use site accommodates time constraints of busy homeowners

A Full Online Experience for Lee Company Customers

Lee Company, recognized as an industry leader for the introduction of smart glasses technology in home services, is taking the next step forward – using technology to better serve customers with a portal that supports a full online experience.

The Lee Company Customer Portal enables homeowners to request service and book appointments online whenever it’s convenient, 24/7. The portal is also designed to make it easy for customers to track the status of service requests, and get updates on the Lee Company technician scheduled to come to their home.

“We know customers want a full online experience – they’re trying to check things off the ‘to do’ list while they’re between meetings, picking up kids, always on the go,” says Dan Kalman, Senior Vice President of Home Services. “With the launch of our new portal, Lee Company is raising the bar on customer service for everything from scheduling annual HVAC maintenance to tracking repair work.”

Kalman says it should take Lee Company customers a minute or less to register on the site. After they are registered, booking appointments is simply one of the online options. Customers can also set up a home profile that will allow them to track information about their home’s HVAC systems, electric and plumbing systems, and more. Online chat is available too.

“Launching this portal has been at the top of my own ‘to do’ list,” says Kalman. “We’ve seen the benefits technology brings to our customers, and we’re confident the portal will be a tremendous asset. It’s easy to use, and provides a really convenient way for busy homeowners to stay on top of maintenance and repair needs, and the service work conducted.”

The portal is an addition to Lee Company’s customer service options. Customers can still call the company’s customer service phone line at 615-567-1000, and are encouraged to do that if there is an emergency or same-day service is required.

We Hit the Mark – Again!

August 14, 2017

Together, we did it! On Friday, August 11th, with our wonderful title sponsors and supporters, Lee Company raised more than $19,000 at the recent Justice Shoot – the clay shoot, held to benefit Justice Mercy International (JMI).

The money raised helps JMI provide essential assistance to children in Moldova, a former Soviet republic in Eastern Europe.

“The Justice Shoot that Lee Company puts together every year to benefit JMI is one of our favorite days of the year,” says Mary Katharine Hunt, JMI Executive Director. “It’s a great day of fun and team-building that also raises significant money to help protect vulnerable children from trafficking in the country of Moldova. Thank you, Lee Company, for making justice personal!”

Helping children in Moldova illustrates our belief that community is not defined by geography; our community goes far beyond county and state lines. We are blessed to be able to support this organization. And we couldn’t do it without you! Thanks to everyone involved.

Our special thanks and gratitude to the 2017 Justice Shoot title sponsors: Care Supply; Ed’s Supply; Ferguson; J. Smith Lanier; Kenny Pipe & Supply; Mechanical Resource Group; Pinnacle Financial Partners; Sunbelt Rentals; Viega; Trane; and Trillium Construction.
