He provides day to day support and leadership to the overall teams at Harman Construction as well providing needed resource so that each team has what they need to be effective for each and every client Harman serves.
What have been some of your favorite projects with Harman? Why?
One of my favorites would have to be the various projects for Eastern Mennonite University. They are an excellent organization to work with from start to finish, which makes for a wonderful and solid partnership through each project we work on together. Of particular interest for me was the building and completion of the University Commons.
Another project that I really enjoyed was the RMH Cancer Center and Medical Office Building in Harrisonburg. Not only was it a large project with an an aggressive schedule, but being able to work and support an organization that is doing so many great things in and for our community has been wonderful.
What have you come to appreciate and value about working with the team at Harman?
Each team member brings strengths to the table. Those strengths help to balance out the team as a whole. Here at Harman our people are a wonderful mix of visionaries, dreamers and detailed oriented personalities. Mixing all those strengths really helps our teams bring the very best to the table for our clients day in and day out. They are an outstanding group of folks that value team over personal goals and it shows in how well our teams work together here at Harman.
What other life experience have you had that helps you in your job today?
I come from a large family where we had to learn to work together and have a mutual give and take in our relationships, both in day to day life as well as in the family business that has spanned the last 75 years. My dad is a wonderful role model, teaching us how to treat others, how to be strong in our faith and how to run a strong business together.
Outside your Harman work, what other things do you enjoy in your down-time?
I love being involved in my kids activities and in various roles and connections with my church family. I also enjoy travel, golf, music, history and Cleveland sports teams.
