Hague E. Howey is President of Hague Howey Custom Builders Inc., a company he founded 24 years ago. Its primary operation is general contracting residential new construction and remodeling. Architects are generally involved in the companyï¿½s high end specialty work. From time to time commercial construction work is undertaken and has included the building of a new Church, the renovation of the old Salvation Army complex at 19th and California for Epsen Hillmer Graphics, National and International Offices and other wide ranging projects. His company is viewed as innovators in the field for both employment of new cutting edge building products and the employment of technology in operating a residential general contracting company.
Prior to his start in construction, which was initiated by the building of his own personal residence as a side venture, he spent 13 years in corporate finance with a wide range of experience from general manager of a prestigious investment banking house in Kansas City, bank lending officer, to Director of Corporate Finance for Richman Gordman Stores. With each challenging opportunity his insight has left behind new direction for others ranging from a system of ï¿½Fully Disclosed Clearing ï¿½ branch offices at the investment house to the most sophisticated electronic cash management and over night investment systems of any retail company.
Even before Hague finished high school, he got acquainted with residential construction by working summers as a framing carpenter. While in college he founded a building materials brokerage company and brokered steel and pre-cast concrete for two companies in Independence, Missouriï¿½probably setting the direction for his later entry into the construction business but assuredly helping pay a good portion of his college expenses.
Hague is a doer and spends little time on reflecting on where he has been but more time on where he wants to be going. The past three years have been both challenging and frustrating with high aspirations for seeing the success of his Fuel Cell project cut short by economic woes in the technology sector and the fallout effect of 9-11, the Enron scandal, Level 3, and World Com, all of which have hit at the heart of his high-end clients. Comfort and lifeï¿½s right perspective is maintained by his involvement as a mentor in the ï¿½All our Kidsï¿½ mentoring program.
Business is a contact sport and Hague follows that both for the marketing of his construction services and because he likes to interact with people and have positive influence on outcomes. As a member of the Omaha Chamber of Commerce he is active in their Tips program, Annual Membership Drive, Thank-a-thon and serves on the Labor Availability Council plus its ï¿½Think Tankï¿½ with such notables as Dr. Dennis Smith (president of the University of Nebraska) and Dr. Harvey Pearlman (Chancellor of the University of Nebraska) and has been a contributor to many of its ï¿½Youngest and Brightestï¿½ retention program initiatives and structure of labor availability in the skilled trades. In 2001 he received appointment to the Omaha Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors as a director at large. He holds a life directorship in the Metro Omaha Home Builders Association (MOBA) and has been active on its board. Over the years he has received numerous awards and honors for community service work including the prestigious ï¿½Service To Man Kind Awardï¿½ from the South West Sertoma Club in 1994. Received 10 years of appointments to the Millard North scholarship review board and served the Millard School District several years as advisor on vocational trade studies. His service to the Boy Scouts as Scout Master of the Harvey Oaks troop, on the district council, and the Frontier Districtï¿½s creator of its, Swimming and Life Saving program at Montclair Community Center ranks high in his heart of community contributionsï¿½this possibly because of being an Eagle Scout himself and being introduced to flying thru its merit badge program that spurred him on to become the youngest licensed private pilot in Kansas City (1968).

Was it only yesterday we said "hi" in the hallway or shared the same class?
Was it only yesterday we talked on the phone or crammed for a test?
Was it only yesterday we held our diplomas and said our good byes?
Was it only yesterday we heard of your passing?
And we cried.
