President – Salt, Soil, Waste, G&L Group
Pat Lamanna is the strategic vision behind G&L Group, recognized as one of Canada’s best managed companies for the past four years. Since partnering in his father’s business in 1995, Lamanna’s vision and leadership helped grow the business into five successful companies –Toronto Redi-Mix, Brock Aggregates, Draglam Salt, Earthco Soil Mixtures and Draglam Waste & Recycling – employing more than 300 people. Lamanna founded Draglam Salt while still in college, frustrated that having to wait for salt at night for his snowplow business was making him late for class. Today, Draglam Salt is Ontario’s largest independent bulk salt distributor.
