Joe is the General Manager of the Wyoming-Western Nebraska region as well as our fearless leader. He has been with Lamar since January 1998, so he knows a thing or two about Out of Home (OOH) advertising! Joe has done it all, starting as an installer before moving to sales, then to Sales Manager and now to the General Manager role. When he isn’t in our Casper office overseeing day-to-day operations, he is spending time with his 10 children – yes, you read that right! Joe and his high school sweetheart have hearts of gold. After having 3 children of their own, they adopted 7 more! Joe and his family love to spend time outdoors in the beautiful Wyoming wilderness, especially during the fall when all of Joe’s favorite things come together: hunting, fishing and pro football. A Casper native, he understands the needs and demands of Wyoming businesses. Joe helps all our staff ensure that you have a fantastic experience with Lamar from the first phone call and beyond.
