ABOUT OUR OWNER
The youngest Black woman to receive California’s CSLB (A) General Engineering license, Jennifer Todd, serves as LMS General Contractors Founder and President. Todd heads the company’s management team and is responsible for developing & executing LMS’s strategic growth.
With nearly 15 years in the industry, Todd has held various office and field positions throughout the years. Most of her construction career has been geared toward completing federal, public, and private demolition and environmental works. She has managed to remove over 5 million square feet of hazardous materials to date during her career.
Noting the industry’s complexity, Jennifer desired to deepen her construction law and contract knowledge and decided to attend law school. “Construction is very complicated. I noticed that some of the most successful construction business owners were also lawyers. It was important to join them.”
In 2009, she created an apprenticeship training program, A Greener Tomorrow, geared toward the advancement of unemployed and underemployed people of color. A Greener Tomorrow is a program which creates living wage construction jobs for men and women the desire to work.
Jennifer Todd continues to be a strong advocate for job creation and employee development. She has spoken on panels for Engineering News-Record and American Bar Association on the construction industry’s diversity & inclusion disparities for women and minorities.
In recognition of her dedication to the industry, Jennifer Todd was honored as one of Construction Business Owner Magazine’s 2020 Outstanding Women in Construction.
