The conception and creation of the Colleague Emergency Fund is dedicated to the memory and life of Ken LaChance for his contribution to Convergint Technologies and unwavering support of colleagues.
Ken LaChance, Vice President of Business Development, joined Convergint on September 19, 2001. Ken started our Atlanta CTC with Mike Singer, Vice President of Operations (colleagues 14 and 15). On September 6, 2015, Ken passed away suddenly as the result of a devastating stroke. Just shy of 14 years with Convergint, he was the ultimate contributor to our success, the epitome of our Values and Beliefs, and a superb role model for every colleague. He truly made a daily difference.
Ken not only embodied the Values and Beliefs of Convergint Technologies, he was one of those rare human beings that shined in all he did and left a lasting impression on everyone he touched. People who knew him can honestly say he was one of the most inspirational people they ever had the pleasure of knowing. Ken was also an incredibly supportive and generous person who would pour himself into supporting a colleague and help them grow. While he was taken away from us way too soon, he lived a full and rewarding life by all measures. We sincerely miss Ken as the consummate professional and more importantly as an outstanding human being.
