Prior to joining LSW, Lamb worked six years for the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, most recently serving as terminal manager at BNSF’s Allouez Taconite Facility and acting superintendent of operations for BNSF’s northeastern Minnesota operations. Lamb has more than 20 years of experience working with business and industry professionals and representatives of state and local government.
