favorite LOTH memory

My favorite memory is pretty recent – when we celebrated our owner, JB’s 30th anniversary of LOTH ownership this past June. It was of course a very special milestone for JB and the Buse family, and for our company. But also, amidst COVID, it was a really cool opportunity to pull our entire company together virtually to celebrate something very positive!

advice for the next generation of business leaders

There is a saying, a candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.  Open yourself up, in your personal life and in your professional life, to others and winning as a team.  No one can do everything alone, and the best leaders aren’t those who achieve great things themselves, but who inspire others to achieve great things together.
