|Lefever Joins Hoober, Inc.; Part of Third Generation Management Team|
At Hoober, Lefever will share in the responsibility for strategic vision and planning for the company and will also be involved in finance, human resources, systems and marketing.
“Perhaps even more than any specific technical, operational, or business knowledge, what I hope I can most contribute to is the continuation and on-going development of the culture and personality of Hoober that emphasizes customer service, integrity and teamwork,” said Lefever. “I’m also eager to work on business development and growth, and we’re already beginning to think about possibilities for future generations of leadership.”
“We’re very committed to family ownership and Chuck and I are excited to have Rod join Hoober as a partner,” said Scott Hoober. “His business experience, knowledge, technical expertise, along with the familiarity with our company and our goals, really adds strength to our organization.”
“Being part of the family Rod understands the foundation established by my grandfather Bud, and then built upon by my dad Charlie, is still the driving force behind our company and that’s taking care of the customer and doing what’s best for the customer,” said Chuck Hoober.
It is that foundation, according to Lefever, that will continue to guide the company moving forward.
“The vision and nature of the Hoober business has developed over time and we expect that it will continue to develop, likely in ways we may not even currently envision,” said Lefever. “However, across business changes, what has remained and will remain consistent is our commitment to a culture of customer service, integrity and teamwork. I believe the Hoober company, culture, and personality is a reflection of the strong values and faith of the Hoober family and it is our hope that will continue in generations to come.”
