Eric joined PCL as a producer in September 2008 after nine years at Lockheed Martin where he worked on hardware and software for missile, launcher and reconnaissance systems for our U.S. military.
Eric is very active in many construction associations and has served on the board of directors for the American Subcontractors Association of North Texas, National Utility Contractors Association of North Texas and Texas, and the Independent Electrical Contractors – Dallas.

Eric graduated from The University of Texas at Arlington in 1999 with a degree in Electrical Engineering. While attending college he met his wife, Melissa, who also works at PCL.
Clem has over 40 years of experience helping contractors establish and expand their surety lines of credit. He worked for eight years as an underwriter for USF&G (now part of Travelers) and Bond Manager at The Hartford, and four years for a full lines insurance agent before he and his wife Pauline founded PCL in 1985.
Clem served as a director for Associated Builders and Contractors-North Texas from 2005-2008. In August 2007, ABC-NT presented him with the “Excellence in Government Award,” recognizing him for his ongoing commitment and efforts on behalf of ABC, its members, and the construction industry in the areas of legislation and political action.
Prior to earning his business degree from the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, he spent part of his military duty in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers working on power generation systems for NATO sites in Europe.
Melissa joined PCL in February of 2013. She is a licensed agent and her top priorities are business development, association participation, organization of seminars and client appreciation events. She currently serves on the board of directors for the American Subcontractors Association North Texas chapter. She has been married to Eric Lesch since 1999 and together they have two children, Sophia (17) and Evan (14). When not working you can usually find her on the golf course, or with her shotgun shooting clays!
Felix joined PCL in April of 2018. He is a licensed agent, and in his role as our Controller, he manages accounting, bond production, and analysis of client financials. He served for two years as the Treasurer for the National Utility Contractors Association of North Texas and Texas chapters.
