Construction comes naturally to Aaron Howey, a fourth-generation carpenter.
Aaron grew up on a farm and, at 12 years old, started helping his father with agricultural and residential construction during the summer. Some of his best childhood memories are working alongside his father and learning the trades.
Aaron later started his own residential construction business before moving into commercial construction, where he started as a carpenter and quickly advanced to superintendent. He took classes on nights and weekends, earning his degree in construction management before transitioning into a project management position. In 2019, he joined The Hagerman Group’s Louisville office, where he works on industrial, higher education, healthcare, and commercial projects.
Aaron’s favorite aspect of construction is seeing projects materialize. At Hagerman, he enjoys the collaboration and opportunity available at the company and in the Louisville office.
“Whether through training or just needing quick input from a coworker, the support and collaboration at Hagerman is great,” Aaron said. “I’ve also enjoyed helping the company grow in the Louisville market by helping win new projects and completing them successfully.”
Some of those projects include pharmacy renovations, a mechanical renovation for a research lab at the University of Louisville, foundation work for North American Stainless, and numerous improvements at Swift & Co.
When he’s not at work, Aaron enjoys sporting clays, trap shooting, gardening, and mechanic work. A lifelong resident of Salem, Indiana, Aaron has been married to his wife, Tracy, for 20 years and they have four children. Aaron serves as the Board of Trustees Chairperson at Canton United Methodist Church and president of the Salem Lions Football Parent’s Association.
