KH&R Honors Veteran Employees

At a company-wide meeting May 19, Kliethermes Homes & Remodeling president Dan Kliethermes recognized three employees who have shown company commitment through years of service: Phil Clithero, Leslie Harryman and Raymond Oberhaus.
“Employee loyalty is becoming rare in the modern workplace,” says Kliethermes. “We’ve been fortunate to have a number of dedicated and talented professionals on our team for more than a decade, and we wanted to honor their hard work and devotion to our company. We truly appreciate them all as both people and as employees.”
Phil Clithero, Production Superintendent at Kliethermes Homes & Remodeling and 2006 president of the Home Builders Association of Columbia, has been part of the Kliethermes team for 20 years. Clithero plans and organizes construction projects in addition to managing relationships among customers, project managers, architects, subcontractors and Kliethermes personnel.
“Phil and I started in the trenches together 20 years ago putting in footings and framing and finishing projects,” Kliethermes says. “From any structural, technique or management angle, Phil can do it — and he does it as well as anyone I know in this industry. He truly is an expert in all aspects of homebuilding and remodeling, and he has been very loyal to our company.”
Although he was originally hired as a Concrete Finisher in 1994, former business owner and 20-year industry veteran Leslie Harryman has advanced to the position of Concrete Foreman during his 11 years of service at Kliethermes. Today, he coordinates concrete work and landscaping for Kliethermes projects.
“Ray is driven to finish the job right or not at all, and he’s very pleasant to work with,” Kliethermes says. “Our clients all love working with him, too, because he listens closely to them and works with them throughout their projects.”
In 1989, Raymond Oberhaus brought 21 years of industry experience to the Kliethermes team — including nine years of experience owning his own construction business — when he was hired on as a Project Manager and Lead Carpenter. Nearly 17 years since, Oberhaus still serves in those capacities for Kliethermes Homes & Remodeling, primarily managing remodeling projects and performing carpentry work.
“Ray is one of the most devoted employees anyone could have,” Kliethermes says.
