Bob Hoying, Principal
Crawford Hoying

Bob Hoying returned to central Ohio in 2002 after a seven-year career as a quarterback with the Philadelphia Eagles and Oakland Raiders in the National Football League. The former Ohio State Buckeye had earlier befriended Brent Crawford during a chance pairing on the golf course in 1998. Upon his return to the Columbus area, the two men partnered to purchase the 252-unit apartment community Gateway Lakes in 2002. Within ten years the pair had grown their partnership into a full service real estate company, managing over 20 apartment communities, over 1 million sq ft in commercial real estate, and becoming major contributors in Central Ohio real estate development.

Bob takes an active role in guiding the company's $500 million in new developments. His role includes several facets of the development process, including land acquisition, property due diligence, closing requirements, and the obtainment of city entitlements.

Join Leaders  Exchange Ideas  Take Action
Returning for a third year is our Spring Recruiting Event: March Membership Madness.  The Club had great success in our inaugural run for this event in 2016, recruiting 30 new members between March and June.  We need the same response this year.

Our event mirrors college basketball's March Madness, pitting teams against each other every two weeks until we name a CHAMPION!

Membership is the lifeblood of any Rotary organization.  Yes we are a service organization, but we are a membership organization first.  Members support projects, scholarships, activities and fundraisers. Without them our ability to serve the community falters drastically.  

Help us out!  Invite friends and associates to visit Rotary.  Once they are in the door, we will show them what a great organization this is.  Join a Team Captain!  Captains are working on building their teams and need your participation.  

The Program Committee has lined up a fantastic two months of programs featuring Bobby Hoying/BridgePark, Matt McCoy/iHeart Sports Director, Dr. Michael Drake/OSU, Lisa Courtice/United Way, Shige Yoshida and Tom Shoupe/Honda.  Add to that a chance to attend a Vocational Lunch on April 16 at a Rotarians place of employment and we have a great two months to show off our Club. 
Questions?  Call Scott Brown today!

Congratulations to Halle and TJ Markwas on the birth of their first child.  He was born appropriately on Monday, Feb 26.  Looking forward to hearing more details soon.
