Advocate. Engineer. Trail Blazer. 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, Todd 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, Todd created an apprenticeship training program, A Greener Tomorrow, geared toward the advancement of unemployed and underemployed people of color.
