Get To Know

Favorite place to work:
My deck, where the view often includes deer eating the apples from my tree.

Favorite hangout:
A great independent bookstore, preferably one with a café. The best towns all have independent bookstores.

Weekend destination:
Any town with a park along a river, restaurants and cafes spilling onto the streets, and the doors of the shops wide open.

I like to read:
Historical fiction like The Personal Librarian, which is about the curator of J.P. Morgan’s collection of books and manuscripts.

If I’m not working or traveling, I might be:
Mountain biking in Rothrock State Forest. I don’t even have to get in the car, I just pull out of my driveway and go.

My signature dish:
Coq au vin, Melissa Clark’s recipe from the New York Times. Preparation starts the day before, and it’s worth it.

Workplace win:
Whether it’s luck or our wonderful clients or a company mindset that values mentorship, Reese Hackman has recruited and retained cool people who all do their part to bring about a shared vision.
