October's SMBH Core Values Award Goes to Founder, Bill Lantz

Posted on October 03, 2018

A new month means a new SMBH Core Values Award Recipient! This time, it was founder Bill Lantz.

Bill and his partner Tom Jones started our company in 1972, under the name of Lantz and Jones. Three years later, in 1975, they took on another partner, Jim Nebraska, and the firm updated it's name to Lantz Jones & Nebraska.

With offices in Charleston, West Virginia and Stuart, Florida, the home office has always been in Columbus, Ohio.

During the past 2 decades, the ownership has transitioned, prompting another name change to Shelley Metz Baumann Hawk, which was most recently simplified as SMBH.

Bill Lantz has been at the company since the beginning, and still serves as a Senior Project Engineer on many of our projects.

Thank you, Bill, for building a company that can last and that we love working for!
