Board Candidates for 2022
My first experience at HRC was as the guest of Larry and Charlotte Williams over a decade ago. I loved the club and joined in April of 2012. The Friday Flip soon became a favorite evening out. I’ve also enjoyed sharing the club with clients, friends and family. The professional pictures from many HRC events hold a prominent place on my fireplace mantle.
I’m not a Michigan native, having lived in eight states growing up and shipping out all over the world in the Marine Corps. I enlisted in 1979, earned my degree at Madison Wisconsin on a ROTC scholarship and was commissioned in 1984. I’ve practiced leadership and management ever since in several rolls. I was on the board of Redford Baptist and was stewardship chairman. I served on the board of the Metro-West Steelheaders Club for seven years and was secretary and president. For 30 years I’ve been a financial advisor and have owned Haas Center for Wealth Management which I purchased from my mentor ten years ago. My home of 22 years is in Farmington Hills just a mile from the club where I garden and have begun planting an orchard which I hope to enjoy for at least another 22 years.
HRC has become a very important part of my life. Sitting the chairs as secretary, treasured, vice president, president and past president would be a great honor. I aspire to continue our club traditions an build our club for future generations.

I have been an active member of the club for almost 15 years but began coming to the club 10 years before that when I was in my mid-twenties. I was instantly impressed (and continue to be impressed) with the service, tradition, and values that have kept the club thriving for almost 100 years. The Club is where to go to appreciate the finer things in life like a well-executed meal, a great glass of wine and even better conversation. My wife Colleen and I have enjoyed many fantastic evenings hosting our family and friends at the Club whether it be for an event or a birthday dinner. We particularly love Friday Flips, the President’s Ball and the Clam Bake. In the world of Zoom and video conferencing I have found great joy having a relaxed lunch with clients and colleagues at the Club.
Colleen and I have been married for over 20 years and have two wonderful children, Ben (17) and Mia (14). Our kids have essentially grown up at the Huron River Club. We have many fond memories of taking them to Mother’s Day Brunch, Easter Brunch, and Santa Brunch (10 years later, Mia still has a stuffed elephant from Santa). Ben and Mia have truly grown to appreciate the fine dining experience that the Club provides. It never ceases to amaze us how much a 17 year-old boy can eat, and the Club is just the place for that!
Professionally I have been an Estimator/Project Manager/Operations Manager for over 25 years at various local and international heavy highway construction companies. I am currently a Senior Project Manager at Ajax Paving Industries, Inc. The leadership, project management and financial skills that I use on a daily basis are attributes that will be of benefit to me as a board member in guiding the club into its next 100 years. I look forward to serving the membership.
Online voting is now over.
