When Bruce Molter was 13, his parents decided to build a home, and Bruce and his father—a frugal farmer—did most of the work themselves. “I remember sitting on the roof thinking, ‘this is the coolest thing,’” he says. At that moment, Bruce—who had planned to become a farmer—decided he’d work construction in the off-season. “That all changed when I graduated from Purdue and got into commercial construction,” says Bruce. “It got into my blood, and I loved it.”

At Hagerman, Bruce focuses on operations and business development, all in line with the company’s vision. “I love the relationships we generate and being a trusted service provider,” he says. A reliable leader who has been with Hagerman for 30 years, Bruce enjoys being of service to employees and giving back to the industry.

In addition to his involvement in multiple organizations, Bruce is a passionate supporter of many causes, including Junior Achievement of Central Indiana, Riley Children’s Foundation, and the Parkinson’s Foundation.

A father and grandfather, when Bruce isn’t spending time with family, he loves landscaping and yard work. Also, he cheers on the Cubs, Bulls, Bears, and Blackhawks, having grown up north of Lafayette.
