    Lamar Advertising of Los Angeles
    Vice-President & General Manager
    I am a 20+ year employee of Lamar.  I started my career in sales in southeast Ohio just west of Pittsburgh, PA.  I graduated from college with a major in Accounting and Finance.  I was promoted to Sales Manager and ultimately General Manager in Dayton, OH in 1999.  I moved to California in 2002 and worked in the Inland Empire office.  After an acquisition of Vista Media in 2008, I became the manager for our new Los Angeles office.  It has been a fantastic journey and my family absolutely loves Southern California.
