Five generations of family ownership of The Langdale Company have afforded it continuity in leadership that has contributed to growth and stability over more than a century. Just as we continually innovate to benefit our employees, customers and community, we have enhanced the governance of the company with external advisers. The resulting variety of leadership perspectives enables our multiple-faced organization to remain nimble and proactive in maximizing opportunities across our diverse businesses.
Heeding the wisdom of Harley Langdale, Jr., who said, “Markets change. You can’t sit on one thing,” we are continually adapting not only to markets, but our governance to ensure that we are encouraging innovation. And our most important leadership of The Langdale Company lies with the management of our affiliate companies. The leaders of The Langdale Company are here to support those largely autonomous enterprises.
