No, not that Enquirer, although with some of the stories she tells…. But I digress. Our fearless leader was featured on the front page of the Kentucky Enquirer on Saturday, March 9th. You can check it out here.
For those of you who don’t want to read the whole thing, here’s a recap. Lacy started Legion Logistics in 2009 in her house. Her dream of being able to pay the bills with her new company has been far surpassed, with the Legion generating $12 million in revenue in 2012. The staff has also grown by leaps and bounds. The company now has 31 full-time employees and is well on its way to employing 50 people from Kentucky and Ohio by the end of 2013.
Lacy and co-owner Tony Coutsoftides realize how fortunate they are, and they generously give back to local groups through financial contributions and company community service projects. They also proudly support the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps disabled veterans in their return to civilian life.
After being recognized by Governor Beshear last month, the Legion’s phones have been ringing off the hook with people wanting to tell the story and to be a part of the story. Lacy and Tony have also fielded inquiries from other companies interested in buying the Legion. But they aren’t selling anytime soon. They have a strategic vision that stretches to 2020, and they are planning to see it through.
