CITY OF INDUSTRY June 28, 2021 – LEE + RO, Inc., today announced that it has promoted Principal Engineer Sam Lee, P.E., to QA/QC manager. Lee, working together with company President Charles Ro, will take the lead in solidifying the firm’s quality management system through enforcement of corporate policies, procedures, and protocols for quality planning, quality assurance, and quality control.

treatment plants, booster pump stations and lift stations, force mains and other water and wastewater conveyance and collection systems, including emergency generators and other auxiliary equipment.

Said Charles Ro, LEE + RO president: “I’ve been fortunate to have worked side by side and risen in the company along with Sam these past 14 years. His extensive knowledge and procedural understanding make him uniquely qualified to take on this role. As municipalities and districts look to consulting firms to take on expanding roles in the management of complex projects, it requires that there be a more inclusive quality management system that provides greater confidence that quality requirements are met.”
