3-for-30: Stan Leverson
At Lehman-Roberts Co. and Memphis Stone & Gravel Co., our greatest asset is our people. Since 1939, it has been our goal to be the best asphalt producer and contractor in the Mid-South, and that would not be possible without great employees. We believe that the path to true success begins with hiring qualified people who will thrive in our culture. We have cultivated an environment which has allowed us to acquire and maintain loyal employees, some who have been a part the company for 30 years or more. In our 3-for-30 series, we will take closer look at those employees who have successfully contributed to our mutual success.
Stan Leverson – Perry Plant Manager, 34 years

It’s the people I work with; they’re all good people. We’re pretty spread out across the company, but they make sure we get to see each other at one time or another through the year, whether it’s our annual training or the picnic or another time. The company cares how you feel and your input means something. We’re run by God-fearing men and they treat you right.
