My family and I relocated to Northern Colorado from West Chester, PA during the summer of 2012. We came out here so I could take a new role at Hach, which is a division of a large publicly traded company named Danaher. I've worked for Danaher since 2002 and Hach since 2012. I became the President of Hach in January 2015.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about my family, improving the lives of others, my faith, and since joining Hach, ensuring quality water for people around the world.
What are your hobbies?
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, watching my kids do what they love (riding horses, performing on stage), playing tennis, and hacking through a round of golf. Both my wife and I enjoy listening to music, attending live shows, exploring Rocky Mountain National Park, and enjoying either a glass of red wine or a fresh, craft-brewed IPA.
What is your dream for Larimer County?
I believe Larimer County's best days are ahead of us. I dream that every child can pursue their dreams, and do so with the building blocks of stable housing, a consistent food supply, and access to the best public education. I also believe we can build on the great foundation we have with strong corporate partners by hiring in the region and working closely with United Way and others to sustain a globally competitive workforce, accomplishing breakthrough innovation, while giving back to ensure future generations can enjoy living here as much as we do. Lastly, I believe that we can continue to invest to preserve the beauty and natural resources maintain their splendor and serve as a destination for local residents and visitors for decades to come.
How long have you been a United Way donor?
I have been a United Way donor for 11 years, having first been introduced to it in 2004 when I lived near Roanoke, in Southwest Virginia.
Why do you choose to support your community through United Way?
United Way has several attributes I look for in organizations I partner with and support financially: 1) Transparency; 2) Accountability; 3) Metrics that demonstrate impact & results; 4) Sustainable processes; 5) Passionate people working to improve people's lives. I also love their simple, powerful motto: Give, Advocate, Volunteer...Live United.
