What do you like about the corporate culture of HPI?

A great team culture that is very inclusive. There is no one more important than the next. Everyone participates in reaching our goals.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

What spare time? I spend as much time as possible with my family, especially my grandkids. I do enjoy hunting, skiing, golfing, and attending the grandkids sporting events.

Please name a person who has had a tremendous impact on your life.

Hal Lahr, my football coach at Colgate, taught me the value of competition and instilled a “never quit” mentality into all of us. Both were truly great lessons in life.

What are the factors that most impact the growth of HPI?

Delivering projects as promised and our ability to raise new third party capital.

What will help us, as a company, make smarter decisions?

To continue to empower our young and talented people while providing them the tools and materials to do so.
