Sales and Project Management

Cecil Lindsey

Sales, Estimating and Project Management 

Cecil Lindsey’s 27 year tenure with Vector Concepts has led him to the position of Senior Project Manager. He was lured away from the music distribution business where he performed in management, forklift training, warehouse design, and as part of the safety team. At Vector, his job requires expertise in sales, estimating, project management and design assistance from beginning to end, offering stellar service with the goal of 100% customer satisfaction. His code is “There are no problems, only opportunities.”

A talented musician, Cecil plays guitar and sings backup for his Christian band, Seven Days from Sunday. They play frequently at area churches and community events. He and his wife, Kathi, have two lovely daughters, Megan and Morgan. He loves to spend time with his family and stays active by exercising regularly. He is involved with Vector’s favorite charity “Family Legacy,” which provides care for orphaned children in Zambia.

The practical jokester side of Cecil is well known around the office. He says “I like to make a good time out of any situation. Why should it just be a job when your co-workers are like your family?” So, at any given time, Cecil will show his affection by scaring the daylights out of them by blowing an air horn behind their heads when they least expect it, quite often capturing the hilarious results on video.
