John Fether is appointed President/CEO of Hilscher-Clarke.
MORE THAN A TEAM;
MORE LIKE A FAMILY.
When we turn on the juice, it doesn't come from electrical power. It's all people power. Hilscher-Clarke's electrical engineering contractors are different. On purpose, because we live and work in service to our values.
FIRST THINGS FIRST.
IT STARTS WITH THE PEOPLE …
If you ask a customer what they think about first when they hear the name Hilscher-Clarke, they won’t talk about trucks or equipment or technology or tools. They tell us it’s the people — people with a deep sense of values.
Every day, we wake up to do the right thing in the right way the first time. “FIRST THINGS FIRST” is about that abiding dedication, as well as our core values of Faith, Integrity, Respect, Selfless and Team.
So much more than the sum of five words, this is how we live.
OUR CORE VALUES.
Expertise and experience bring you value, but nothing matters more to us than personal and professional values. At our core, Hilscher-Clarke lives to do “FIRST THINGS FIRST”:
