Let’s Pave names president

By Marianne Wilson - 07/17/2019
Let’s Pave, a national provider of specialized paving services and solutions, announced that veteran industry executive Jeff Lax has joined the company as president and partner.

Lax was most recently president and CEO of GemSeal Pavement Products, a producer and distributor of high-quality pavement products, where he led the team through the execution and integration of three acquisitions that doubled both the scale and geographic reach of the business.

At Let’s Pave, Lax will work alongside founder and CEO C.B. Kuzlik to develop and execute the strategic plan for continued, aggressive growth of the company. Lax will also help lead the day-to-day activities of Let’s Pave and will collaborate with partners Mike Rosen and Mike Zator to ensure the “Let’s Pave Difference” is consistently communicated and implemented for all clients across the growing national business. Finally, as the company considers add-on acquisitions to propel continued growth, Lax will contribute his experience in mergers and acquisitions to the deal-making process.

“Jeff is joining Let’s Pave at an exciting time,” said Kuzlik. “With the recently announced investment and resources provided by Saw Mill Capital, the company is now better poised to accelerate the growth of the unique business model I helped pioneer. Jeff’s strategic thinking and leadership strengths, coupled with his deep knowledge of the materials used by many of our customers, will add a new dimension to our proven team. He will help drive greater quality control and value for our customer base.”

In addition to strategic planning, finance, and business development experience, Lax served in the U.S. Army as an Aviation officer, which included combat service in the first Gulf War.
