On February 6, ASA-HC member Paul Hoggatt, of Hoggatt, Inc., will be among four individuals inducted into the Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) 2020 Masonry Hall of Fame. The event takes place during the MCAA Convention at the World of Concrete/World of Masonry in Las Vegas.
The Masonry Hall of Fame honors those who have dedicated their lives to the masonry industry. Each year, nominations recognize individuals who have had a major impact on the masonry industry — and have been a part of the industry for a minimum of 25 years.
All inductees are nominated by their peers and carefully reviewed by a panel of judges. Nominees must receive two-thirds of the eligible votes in order to be accepted into the Hall of Fame.
Working for his father’s construction company, Hoggatt Masonry, Paul served in all positions with the company, including many years as a foreman and field superintendent. He eventually ascended to president of Hoggatt, Inc. in the early 1980s. Under his leadership, Hoggatt, Inc. thrived. Eventually, Paul supervised the business’ transformation into a fencing and hardscape specialty-niche contractor.
Paul always took an active role in the industry associations in Houston and at the state and national levels. He served as president of the Associated Masonry Contractors of Houston in 1993 and from 2002-2003, and as president of the Texas Masonry Council in 1998. Paul also served several years on the TMS Construction Practices Committee and served on MCAA’s Masonry Systems, Marketing and Workforce Development committees.
