JOSEPH A. HARDY III

FOUNDER

84 LUMBER AND

NEMACOLIN WOODLANDS RESORT

AT 92 YEARS OF AGE, HE’S STILL A COMMANDING PRESENCE. CHARMING AND QUICK-WITTED, HE TELLS STORIES AND ANECDOTES THAT CAPTIVATE AUDIENCES AS HE YELLS OUT PUNCH LINES AT HIGH-VOLUME, DRIVING HOME HIS EMPHATIC BEHAVIOR. THAT’S AN EXAMPLE OF THE SAME COLORFUL DEMEANOR THAT NO DOUBT HELPED HIM CLOSE COUNTLESS BUSINESS DEALS AND REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS OVER THE LAST FIVE DECADES LAUNCHING HIM TO THE NEARLY UNPRECEDENTED LEVEL OF SUCCESS THAT THE HARDY FAMILY NOW ENJOYS.

NOTABLE QUOTE:

“I want to die broke. For the remainder of my life, I want to enjoy and participate in the giving of money to help improve people’s lives.”

BEYOND BUSINESS:

In 2004 Joe Hardy was named Vice Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of Fayette County where he resides. Hardy lead a multi-million dollar renovation of Uniontown, donating millions of dollars to support street and building improvements and construction of green spaces. He has received various awards from the local community for his charitable donations.

WHAT ARE OTHERS SAYING?

Hardy could turn a room into magnificent surroundings with his vision...When I walked out of that first meeting [I thought], Wow, this man is sensational. He’s going to be a real success, and so is his Company.” -Helen Dolfi, Green Hills Lumber transcriptionist, an excerpt from Nothing is Impossible by Jeffrey L. Rodengen

NOSE TO THE GRINDSTONE

He’ll tell you that the money didn’t come easily. He had to work hard for it. In fact, he still does. Mr. Hardy begins each afternoon by making 50 phone calls to his top-50 producing hardware stores across the country. Is it time for Mr. Hardy to slow down? He says no. “I wouldn’t know how, I don’t know any different.” Plus, it’s exciting for him, he loves business. “I like the score. To try to find out what people want and give it to them, everyone’s different and to figure out what they want, that’s really terrific.”

“WHAT’S MY FAVORITE BUSINESS? THE ONE THAT MAKES THE MOST PROFIT.”

THE SUCCESSFUL ATTRIBUTES OF JOESPH A. HARDY III

PERSISTENCE.

“When you make a mistake, don’t let your ego stand n the way. I’ve had a lot of ideas that didn’t work. Be tenacious.”

CURIOSITY.

“I’m naturally very curious, I wonder, ‘gosh, how in the world does that thing work?’ And that goes right along with staying focused.”

EMPATHY.

“To understand what someone feels, that’s the most important thing. You need to get inside the person’s head and meet them in their area of interest, that’s how you can make deals happen.”

WHAT’S IN STORE FOR NEMACOLIN WOODLANDS RESORT

“We are going to appeal to a future growing middle class. I can see the economy moving forward, and people are going to be opening up more, maybe two or three years down the line. We’re expanding and improving our amenities with a magnificent renovation using the greatest architects and craftsmen. The resort has undergone a major expansion under my daughter’s watch. She’s the one making the moves now; Maggie is the future of Nemacolin.”
