Andrew Montgomery just celebrated his 25th anniversary with the company. Starting out at as Drafter I in 1994, he has done every aspect of drafting and designing that Lenity offers its clients over the years.
In that time, Andrew has witnessed many changes in the company and industry – from design trends to people. Now as a Senior CAD Specialist, he focuses on structural design and drafting, as well as architectural floor plans and project design – playing to his jack-of-all trades strengths. When needed for a project, Andrew gladly assists with construction management. With his industry expertise and vast experience, he has also become a mentor to the newer drafters helping them with client programming, understanding company standards, and old-school drafting techniques.
Twenty-five years with a company just doesn’t happen, especially in today’s world. It takes loyalty, dedication, and hard work – three words you can absolutely use to describe Andrew. One of his proudest accomplishments is working on over 400 projects in the last 25 years and still loving what he does! Another aspect that adds to an employee’s longevity with a company is work environment and culture. Andy loves working at Lenity Architecture. He is particularly fond of the “friendly, laid back work environment.”
But he’s not all work and no play. Andrew has found a good work/life balance. Recently remarried to a blended family of eight and a grandchild, he enjoys spending time with them. Outdoor activities are another way he winds down – from hunting and fishing to hiking – he enjoys it all. Andrew has also revitalized his passion for the outdoors with dirt bike riding in one of the most scenic places in the world – Oregon.
Paying tribute to his adventurous side and helping to plan for his future retirement, Andrew would love to learn how to scuba dive. That way when he retires to a warmer clime, he will have a new hobby to enjoy.
