LOUISVILLE, Ky. (May 22, 2012) — Joe Pusateri, president of Elite Homes in Louisville, recently gave the commencement speech to the graduating class of the Luckett & Farley Leadership Institute Class of 2012.
The luncheon ceremony celebrating the 12 Luckett & Farley aspiring leaders focused on community leadership. The nine-month training course was led by professional development consultants, The Lamp Group, based in New Albany, Ind., who also trained the inaugural class of 2011.
“There’s no greater service a company can do for itself, its employees and even its clients than provide the necessary tools and support for growing one’s leadership abilities, which encompasses many different attributes,” said Ed Jerdonek, president and CEO of Luckett & Farley.
Luckett & Farley, a multi-disciplinary architectural, engineering, interior design, program management and construction management organization, has been asked by various organizations to speak about its firm culture dynamic, which includes its Leadership Institute. The firm was also among a handful of companies recognized in a special feature article in the January 2012 issue of ARCHITECT magazine and contributing to a new section of the American Institute of Architects Handbook of Professional Practice regarding firm culture.
