Herb Lagois
President

In Herb Lagois’s earlier days, he loved working with his hands. Sketching and carpentry were his favourite activities. So, it’s not surprising to learn that his favourite part of his job at Lagois is seeing a project take tangible shape.

When Herb isn’t keeping tabs on everything and everyone involved in all of Lagois’ various projects, you might find him on his motorcycle, listening to the Rolling Stones and dreaming the impossible dream of one day meeting Frank Lloyd Wright.
