A Fortune 500 executive with more than 30 years’ experience in the engineering and construction of large-scale power plants, Jim Lamon is the Founder and Chairman of DEPCOM Power, headquartered in Arizona.
Responsible for creating 1,600 jobs across the country, DEPCOM is one of the fastest-growing solar power companies in the U.S. and was ranked the fifth fastest-growing private company in the U.S. by Inc. 5000 in 2018. DEPCOM’s corporate practices reflect Jim’s deep commitment to serving the community, honoring the sacrifices of veterans, and supporting American workers.
Under Jim’s leadership, DEPCOM donates ten percent (10%) of its net income to charities across our country, $7 million to date and growing to help Arizona’s and America’s less fortunate. Twenty percent (20%) of DEPCOM’s staff served in the United States Military, four times the national average of those who have served.
Growing up on a farm, Jim learned to work hard and value Faith, Family, and Country. Jim’s first paying job was shoveling manure at age 7, at $0.25 per stall. That experience has left him well-prepared to clean up Washington. He learned teamwork and dedication when he played football for the legendary coach Bear Bryant. Jim followed in the footsteps of his father, who was a construction engineer and a Command Sergeant Major in the United States Army Reserve. His mother ran the home while also working part-time.
Today, Jim is the father of two grown children and proud grandfather of two grandchildren. He is active in his Christian faith and philanthropy. He enjoys weight training, hiking and yoga.
