July Coworker Spotlight: Kansas City Burg

Joel Morgan

Kansas City coworker Joel Morgan truly exemplifies what career progress can look like at Lithko. Joel started out as an Intern and then came on fulltime as a Project Engineer. He worked his way up to a Field Lead, focusing on project phase planning and running crews. 

From there Joel took a small break from Lithko and came back to focus on project management. He became a Project Coordinator for a while. Then he went back to the field as a Field Lead. He performed very well in this position because of his prior experience coordinating projects and generating information. For example, this experience helped him understand why it was crucial for accurate time and quantity. 

As a Field Lead, he has worked on some very challenging projects including the Costco Plant in Omaha. Instead of focusing on problems, his “can do attitude” has prompted him to search for resolutions in situations and develop in his career. 

Today, Joel is a Place and Finish Lead. His team has a great respect for him and trusts his opinions. Joel’s drive and the ability to be flexible across roles has got him where he is today. Congrats Joel!
