“I am thrilled to be on board with Horizon," says LaMere, “their commitment to be a turnkey solution provider for premium cooking spaces fits perfectly with my background and experience. I look forward to serving our clients with the many services Horizon can provide.”
“Kevin is one of those rare talents who can visualize a complete back-of-the-house solution, but also has the experience, tenacity and detail management skills to get it done,” says Horizon President, Tracy Smith. “Architects and general contractors love him on their team because he’s known as a guy who brings a great deal of knowledge to the job and can finish well. He gets in and gets out. That helps GCs recover lost time and budget. We’re excited to have him on our team.”
