We Hit the Mark

September 14, 2016

Together, we did it! With our wonderful title sponsors and supporters, Lee Company raised more than $20,000 at the recent Justice Shoot – the August 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 2016 Justice Shoot title sponsors: Care Supply; Ed’s Supply; Ferguson; J. Smith Lanier; Kenny Pipe & Supply; Layton Construction; Mechanical Resource Group; Pinnacle Financial Partners; Solomon Builders; Sunbelt Rentals; Trane; and Trillium Construction.

You and Lee Company: We CAN make a difference

August 25, 2016

A can of tuna fish is a small thing. Unless your pantry is empty. Unless you don’t know what to feed your kids. Unless you’re hungry and losing hope.

Hunger is a real problem here. According to the latest statistics, 1 in 7 people (including 1 in 5 children) in our community don’t have enough to eat. And you might be surprised at how many of them are our neighbors, hard-working people who too often have to choose between paying bills and buying food.

Fortunately, together, we CAN make a difference.

The Lee Company team invites you to join us in the Vans4Cans program, now through the end of September. It’s simple:

  • Lee Company technicians are collecting canned goods and other non-perishable food items during service calls. Please donate.
  • Don’t need service right now? You can drop off food donations at any Lee Company office.

When you participate in the Vans4Cans program, you provide the food that’s needed – and so much more. You provide true sustenance. You provide hope.

Help us help them.

Lee Company is honored to be a longtime supporter of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. Our Vans4Cans program supports Second Harvest and the Food Bank of North Alabama.

Year after year, your support makes this program a success. Thank you!

Bill Lee is presented volunteer honor by the YMCA

July 12, 2016

Bill Lee, chairman of our company, is a longtime volunteer with the YMCA of Middle Tennessee, having joined the YMCA’s board of directors in 2008. According to the Y, Bill has been “a true champion for positive youth development in our community.”

The life-changing power of Bill’s involvement was clear at the YMCA’s recent awards ceremony, when 16-year-old Adam Smith presented Bill, his mentor, with the organization’s highest volunteer honor: the Order of the Red Triangle.

“If I hadn’t met Bill, I probably wouldn’t be thinking about my future today,” Adam said. “I would be going to a low-performance school, I might not be in sports, and I probably would be in a lot of trouble. Bill brings out the light in people that others may not see. He brought out the light in me.”

Accepting the award, Bill told the crowd that he’s the one who has learned – from Adam.

“As volunteers, we really become the recipients not only of awards, but of life-changing experiences,” Bill said. “The difficulties and lack of choices and the dangers that lie for a young man like Adam have been completely made aware to me, and that has changed my desire to not only impact one kid’s life, but makes me want to impact a lot of kids’ lives.”

One by one, we can all make a difference. Watch the video of Adam and Bill here – the few minutes will truly brighten your day. Then, take the next step! Share the Lee Company tradition. Get involved.

Golf tournament raises $50,850 for Special Olympics!

June 15, 2016

 

THANK YOU! We want to express our gratitude to all the sponsors, partners, friends and employees that made our 2016 Special Olympics of Williamson County Golf Tournament a reality.

Mike Fisher

It is always amazing to see a community come together to support a beautiful organization, all while having a great time. Last year we were able to raise $45,000 which helped athletes participate in football, bowling, basketball, swimming, golfing and power-lifting activities at the local and state level. The funds raised also allowed the Special Olympics of Williamson County to outfit their winter game athletes with new fleece pullovers and goggles in addition to new swimsuits, towels and bags for the swimming program.

This year we were able to raise $50,850! We are beyond excited and cannot wait to hear updates from the Special Olympics of Williamson County and their athletes. We know these much needed funds will help advance their programs and have a positive impact on all the athletes.

Being an active member of our local community is one of our priorities and we highly encourage you to get involved with a local organization.

We would love to thank our title sponsors:

A beautiful story of the Volunteer State

May 20, 2016

For some people, the “Volunteer State” is just another name for Tennessee. For Mary Catherine Strobel, it was the perfect description of home. This amazing woman survived incredible hardships; helped family, friends and strangers; and established a tradition of giving to those in need.

Knowing her story, we consider it a huge honor that Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee nominated Lee Company for the 2016 Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer Awards. Thank you! We were humbled to be one of three finalists in the corporate volunteerism category.

2016 Stroble Awards Lee Company

Congratulations to all the nominees, finalists and winners. The awards ceremony on April 21 was an amazing event. The inspirational stories we heard made it clear that everyone there was a winner. And it was wonderful to see how volunteers of all ages and backgrounds roll up their sleeves and devote their talents and time to serve others, even people they may never meet.

The Lee Company team considers this recognition a great honor for us, and a tribute to you. Our nomination salutes the heartfelt efforts of all our employees and customers. Thank you for supporting our Vans4Cans campaign year after year, and helping us feed the hungry.

We encourage you to take Mary Catherine Strobel’s heritage to heart. Find a volunteer program you love, and get involved in the community!

Lee Company, a regional leader in facilities solutions and home services, today announced the retirement of Chief Financial Officer Roy Osborne and the welcoming of Rob Ivy as Lee Company’s new financial leader.

(Nashville, Tenn. – November 18, 2015) – Lee Company, a regional leader in facilities solutions and home services, today announced the retirement of Chief Financial Officer Roy Osborne and the welcoming of Rob Ivy as Lee Company’s new financial leader.

Osborne joined Lee Company as CFO 10 years ago and, according to Lee Company President Richard Perko, quickly demonstrated his value on the firm’s Executive Team.

“Roy came to Lee Company during a very difficult season,” Perko said. “From day one, he has been a beacon for our culture of integrity. Roy has led us from our toughest years through the best decade in our company’s history.”

“My 10 years here have really gone by quickly – and I mean that in a good way,” Osborne said.  “At Lee Company, I have been blessed to work with outstanding people, as I have been at every stage of my working career. In that regard, God has been very good to me. Now, I am looking forward to the next season of my life, and to seeing what Lee Company will achieve and become with Rob as its new CFO.”

Ivy comes to Lee Company after serving as CFO of the YMCA of Middle Tennessee since November  2010. A certified public accountant, Ivy holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in accounting from Mississippi State University.

“In finding our next CFO, we knew we had big shoes to fill,” said Perko, “especially in finding someone who fit our culture while also having the key skills and competencies we need for the future. We believe we have definitely found these attributes in Rob Ivy and we are very excited about all that he brings to this great team.”

“It’s so rare in today’s business environment to find an organization like Lee Company – a growing, forward thinking company that values its employees, holds true to its core values and operates with integrity,” said Ivy. “I’m excited about becoming a part of that culture and contributing to Lee Company’s future  success.”
