Thankful for...

We at Holladay would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! In honor of the holiday, we have a special blog post featuring input from employees from all over Holladay about what we are thankful for this year. Enjoy!

John Phair, Partner/President & CEO (South Bend, IN)

"In 2014, I  am thankful for the great partnership and all the partners that run Holladay Properties, including our newest partner, Paul Phair; the return of a robust economy in nearly all of the cities we do business in that is allowing us to focus more on the future than the past; and last, but not least, the people I get to work with in each of our offices every day, who treat me, themselves, and each other with a respect and courtesy that makes the Holladay culture a success and encourages me to come to work excited every day."

James W. Laskowski, Partner/CFO (South Bend, IN)

"I am thankful for a Partner who has a Condo in Cozumel, Mexico and that he will not be using it this Thanksgiving."

Manette Tepe, Partner/Sr. Vice President - Development (South Bend, IN)

"I am thankful for the great group of partners I work with at Holladay. Each brings their own set of knowledge, skills and experience to the myriad of projects we undergo here at Holladay. Like our projects, no two are the same!"

Jeff Ottman, Partner/CFO (Nashville, TN)

"Jeff’s Thankful List:

  • The love and support of my wife even when she is ready to throw me out the window!
  • The blessings and challenges of having two young boys!
  • Three close friends whom I call my ‘brothers’
  • Having a daily sense of humor
  • Still being able to dream about the future
  • The experiences, skills, friendships and lessons learned working more than 16 years with my Holladay family..."
