Paul D. Hoggatt

Inducted 2020

Paul Hoggatt began his masonry career in the early 1960's upon graduation from high school in 1964, working for his family's company, Hoggatt Masonry, in the commercial masonry market in Houston.

Paul served in all positions of the company, including many years as a foreman and field superintendent. After many years of running work in the family business, Paul took over as President of Hoggatt, Inc. in the early 1980's. Under his leadership, Hoggatt Inc. was a thriving contracting business which completed many notable projects in and around the Greater Houston area. In the late 1980s through the early 90's, recognizing an opportunity, Paul successfully transitioned the company to a specialized masonry niche of hardscape and fencing.

Paul always took an active role in the industry associations in Houston, and Texas. He was President of the Associated Masonry Contractors of Houston in 1993, and again in 2002-2003. Paul was also President of the Texas Masonry Council in 1998. He spent considerable time as TMC President travelling to West and South Texas, to recruit new membership for the Association. Paul and his family were regular attendees of TMC Conventions, and meetings, dating back to the original Associated Masonry Contractors of Texas, the precursor to the Texas Masonry Council.

Paul participated as a voting member of ASTM for several years, but found his best voice as a member of TMS, the Masonry Society. The following is from the Service Award Paul received from TMS in 2008: "Paul Hoggatt is extremely generous with both his time and funds to TMS, in his quiet, soft spoken way. Besides donating financially to TMS, he has served TMS in numerous ways in times of need, including recently leading the Construction Practices Committee when the chairman unexpectedly was no longer able to serve. Before TMS TAC could even consider what to do about the issue, Paul voluntarily stepped forward and offered to help; which included chairing the meeting in Cancun and following up after the meeting with numerous e-mails to develop ballots with the committee. This was not a lone example of Paul's willingness to step forward in times of need, nor of his commitment to TMS; rather when Turner Smith, a former chair of the CPC became ill, Paul filled in very ably in Turner's absence and Paul later accepted chairmanship of the committee which resulted in the completion of TMS's Inspection Checklist for Masonry Construction. Besides these examples of Paul's service to TMS, he has also served on the Board of Directors, the Nominating Committee, and the 8th North American Masonry Conference Industry Liaison Committee."

Paul served TMS in the following positions: Construction Practices Comm - 1999 - 2017, Chair twice - 2002 - 2005 and 2008 - 2009
BOD - 2003 - 2005 and 2005 - 2007
Nominating Comm. - 2009 - 2014
8th NAMC (1999) Steering Comm.

Paul and his wife Judi were in attendance at many conventions and meetings of the MCAA. Paul worked several years with the Workforce Committee and in 2007, Paul was awarded the C. Dewitt Brown Leadman Award.

Paul has demonstrated his commitment to the improvement of the Masonry Industry in many ways, and for many years. That commitment should be recognized with a place in the Masonry Hall of Fame.
