At LGC, we’re motivated by tales of career development and success – especially when it involves our employees. In this series, we’ll be sharing stories from managers at LGC and how they’ve moved up the ladder.

Retail stores, restaurants, and hotels are just a few… Read more »

At LGC, we’re dedicated to serving our clients, workers, and community because without their help, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
