The Patch Management Team


Lew Tarlini – Chief Executive Officer

Lew Tarlini has developed and taken ownership interest in several businesses. His business interests have included farm markets, landscape materials distribution, real estate ventures, a pavement company, and Patch Management.

In 1998, Lew started TP Pavement, Inc., which specialized in macadam overlays. About that time, Lew met Scott Kleiger and together they noticed that while many companies offered services to patch potholes, there was a void in the market for a company that could offer larger scale solutions as a complete system. Together, they started Patch Management, Inc. in 1998 to offer such a solution to municipalities and other large-scale users. Patch Management now owns the largest fleet of Spray Patchers in the world. Because of Mr. Tarlinis Pro-active business vision and the financial commitment PMI has continued to develop state of the art technology and truley leads the industry. Our customer base includes Departments of Transportation, Cities, Local Municapalities, Townships and Departments of Public Works throughout the Country, a few areas where we provide our solutions; Maryland , Delaware , Connecticut , New Jersey , Pennsylvania , several turnpike authorities, and many cities including New Orleans, Washington DC, San Diego , San Francisco , Los Angeles , New York City, Philadelphia , Camden , and a multitude of smaller cities and towns throughout the country.
