Drew Peterson

What is your professional passion? 
I am proud of the buildings I have helped build, but in the end I am even prouder of the great relationships I have forged over my many years of working in this industry.  

What is your favorite community cause or philanthropic organization to support and why? 
St. Jude because I have always been a fan of what they do and I appreciate the percentage of money that goes toward helping kids. I am also very proud of the Giving Circle and feel honored to be a part of it. 

What was your favorite family experience? 
My entire family spends July 4th together on my wife’s family ranch in Arizona. It is so fun to watch our children and grandchildren play on the same land that my wife did when she was their age. 

Where do you see the opportunity for further innovation? 
The industry needs to find ways to be more innovative with safety, and not just with more advanced reporting software but rather more innovative ways to prevent injuries in the first place. 

What sport did you play and how did it help you professionally? 
I played baseball and participated in rodeo. I think both sports require the kind of discipline and drive that helped shape my life and career.
