After serving in the United States Marine Corp., Lannom began his career in the grooving and grinding industry in 1983. In 1996, he began working for what was then called Penhall Company. He remained there for the next 17 years until he joined the DDMCONCUT Diamond Tools team as a Grinding & Grooving Sales Manager where he is today.

Although Skorzik has only been in the highway construction industry since 2010, he has played a major part in the sector growth within Canada over the last decade. Originally starting his career with Graff/Penhall as a field operator, he now calls Construction SRB S.C.C. home, for the last 3 years. He is the National Account Manager and oversees grinding and grooving sales spanning from Quebec to the west coast of Canada, as well as offshore projects. Skorzik has been on the committee with ORBA (Ontario Road Builders Association) and he brings an abundance of enthusiasm and a wealth of knowledge to the IGGA. When he and his crew are not making highways a safer place, he can be found sailing on Lake Ontario, or overlanding the many natural trails in Ontario, Canada.
