LRG Inc. recently held its biannual company meeting at its Jasper, Texas Support Center. Previous company meetings, usually week-long sessions of LRG strategic and long-range planning, as well as territory and team break-out sessions, were dwarfed by this year’s “BME” (“Best Meeting Ever” in LRG-speak).
The first day and a half were full and productive with the normal team agenda, enriched by a series of 1-hour vendor presentations by visiting representatives of LRG’s industry partners highlighting new products, updates with existing solutions and fielded questions from the LRG team as part of its ongoing effort to provide top-tier customer support.
The highlight of Day 2 was the LRG Support Center Open House. Participating in the celebration were 14 guest vendors, local dignitaries and community leaders, the Jasper Chamber of Commerce, and the Jasper Economic Development Corporation. The open house featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony, tours of the new facility and its state-of-the-art technology assets.
The 7,500 square foot Support Center accommodates and supports LRG's growing client base and staff. It features a large dedicated demonstration and training room equipped with fiber connectivity for voice, data and remote streaming demos. The Support Center also includes a large warehouse, ideal for staging regional events needs and product rollouts. Guests were also treated to a display highlighting the beauty of Jasper and East Texas, as well an exhibition of 9/11 memorabilia, including an actual FDNY firefighter’s helmet from a ladder company that went into action that day in history.
The week concluded with the vendors, the entire LRG outside sales team and members of the inside sales support team loading up their vehicles and heading to Houston for an 18-table industry expo event. “This was indeed an epic week for LRG that also coincided with our 17th Anniversary as a company” said LRG President Chris Lanier. “We are very grateful for our vendor partners and resellers that have made LRG a viable organization to partner with.”
