Tom Hudepohl: Carrying the Torch

By By Laurie Batter, with Professional Remodeler Staff July 13, 2015
Tom Hudepohl, Vice president of Vincent W. Hudepohl, in Cincinnati, 2015 Professional Remodeler 40 Under 40 awardee

Vice president

Vincent W. Hudepohl, Cincinnati

Age 35

Since the age of 13 Tom has shadowed his father in their family-owned construction business. Now he is preparing to take over as sole owner, placing the highest importance on making customers happy. Ninety-five percent of the company’s revenue comes from repeat business or referrals.

Another high priority is efficient workflow. Each employee is issued an iPhone outfitted with the HoursTracker app, which they use to log their daily hours worked per project and the tasks completed. HoursTracker has given a boost to productivity, focus, and profitability. The company also uses the iPhones to streamline communication within the company via email and with clients using FaceTime.

As a way of giving back to the community, Tom created an initiative to donate reusable building materials, such as kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities and doors, to Building Value, a local nonprofit.
