In his plea, he admitted the crimes occurred while he worked as the regional controller and corporate accounts payable manager for Performance Contracting Group, Inc. (PCG), headquartered in Lenexa. The company, with 50 offices throughout the United States, is made up of several companies that provide a wide range of services and products including demolition; lead and asbestos abatement; thermal, fire and acoustical insulation; and recycling processes.
