Sedlak Congratulates Manager Les Grimes on His Retirement After 18 Years of Outstanding Servce

February 21, 2017 Topics: Announcements, News

Congratulations to Manager Les Grimes on his retirement after 18 years of outstanding service with the firm. When Les joined Sedlak in 1999, he brought over 20 years of operations experience in the consumer products industry to our knowledge base. He became an expert in facility and information systems planning, designing and implementation and, in addition to serving clients, has been instrumental in developing and executing internal training courses for the firm.

Prior to his retirement sendoff, Les gave an internal presentation on a set of labor planning tools he developed for a longstanding client. “This is just one more example of the hard work Les has put into every project he’s been on,” said colleague Michael McGreal.

Les lives with his wife Susan in Colorado and looks forward to playing golf and spending time with his grandson. Congratulations, Les! You will be missed, but we wish you all the best.
