In talking to Carl, there are a few key take-aways that have helped define Harman Construction for over forty years. First, Carl has always done as much or more than what he asked of his employees. Second, his willingness to trust employees and empower others maximized their talents and ability to do good work. And, perhaps most importantly, The Golden Rule has been his guiding philosophy. “Treat those we serve and members of our community as I would want to be treated.” So simple, really.
Also worth mentioning, the JMU graduate loves to kid around. He can take it just as well as he can dish it out! It’s a little thing, but one that has helped shape Harman Construction’s company culture.
In service to the community and industry, Carl has sat on boards for Eastern Mennonite University, First Virginia Bank, Summit Community Bank, Medical Ministries International, AGC of Virginia, AGC of America, Mennonite Health Service, and Butler Manufacturing Builders Council.
Always up for an adventure, Carl enjoys golf, fishing, hunting, skiing, and travel. He is married with three grown children—a son, step-son, and step-daughter—and five wonderful grandchildren.

Married with two grown children and one grandson, Gary enjoys the beach, big dogs—specifically labs and golden retrievers, golf, biking, and travel. You might want to ask him about his love of Virginia Tech football though since JMU’s Dukes beat them last time they played.
