Chicken, because “you can never run out of ways to prepare it.”

Jeff Hagerman’s fascination with construction started young, touring job sites alongside his father and grandfather. “I loved watching buildings go up, learning their intricacies, and—most importantly—seeing how they benefitted people once construction was complete,” says Jeff. Today, as the fourth generation to head up The Hagerman Group, Jeff provides strategic direction while focusing on client relationships and real estate development.

Quick to tackle challenges while keeping an eye on the big picture, he enjoys working in a dynamic industry alongside a talented team. “The best part about Hagerman is our people,” he says. “The ability to work with and learn from a diverse group of people makes it a lot of fun.”

Active in his community, Jeff is passionate about early childhood education, believing that “addressing today’s issues can prevent tomorrow’s problems.” Whether spending time with his young daughter or attending his high school son’s basketball and football games, he enjoys being part of his children’s growth. In addition, he likes spending time at the lake and traveling with family and friends.

“You learn a lot by seeing other cultures,” says Jeff. “You grow personally while gaining perspectives that can also benefit your corporation.”
