Liquid Measurement Systems, Inc. (LMS) announced on Jan. 15 that the company’s former chief operations officer (COO) and general counsel, W. Scott Fewell, has been named chief executive officer (CEO), effective Jan. 1.
He has taken the reins from the company’s owner, George Lamphere, who assumes the role of chairman.
Lamphere has led the company through a period of steady growth and expansion since 2000. Today, LMS is one of Vermont’s fastest growing aerospace companies, specializing in the design, development and manufacture of fuel measurement technologies for commercial and military aircraft.
The company was founded by Lamphere’s father, David Lamphere, in 1991, at his home in Westford, Vermont.
Under the younger Lamphere’s leadership, the company grew from a handful of employees to a team of 43 engineers, skilled assembly technicians, and operations and administrative staff, working in a modern facility in Georgia.
Fewell, the company’s new CEO, joined LMS in January 2016 as its COO and inside general counsel. Prior to joining LMS, he was a director at Dinse, Knapp & McAndrew, P.C., located in Burlington, Vermont. As part of his responsibilities at Dinse, Fewell served as general counsel to LMS from 2014. He served as outside counsel from 2007.
“Scott has gotten to know our business well and our people well, over the course of a dozen years, first as a trusted adviser and then as an energetic, hands-on COO,” said Lamphere. “We have been working methodically on a smooth transition for a while now. I have complete confidence in Scott, and all of our great employees, to take this company to the next level.”
