Beverly Clemons, President of CMI Consulting, LLC, has lived in Lexington since 1989 and worked for another human-resources consulting firm owned by Richard E. "Dick" Blanchard for a number of years. "I was very fortunate to have the
opportunity to work for this man and witness the incredible staff he had put together, and the amazing business he had created. Several years later when he sold the company, I partnered with my former boss to create a company committed to providing the same excellent service and
assistance that our clients had grown accustomed to."
Beverly became the sole-owner of CMI Consulting, LLC on April 1, 2000. Since that time, the client list has continued to grow and CMI now has clients nationally and globally, in addition to a large, dedicated customer base in Kentucky.
Another component of Beverly's own professional happiness and sense of accomplishment is
nurturing the relationships she develops through networking and her civic and charitable involvement.
