Employee Spotlight: Hunter Dawson

Put your hands together for the very last Employee Spotlight for this year! We all know him, we all love him, and we all would choose him for our Volleyball Team. Ladies and Gentlemen, Hunter Dawson!

What Is Your Role at Magnolia Homes?

I am the VP of Operations!

How Long Have You Worked at Magnolia Homes?

I’ve been here for 12 years.

What is Your Favorite Part About your day-to-day?

There is never a dull moment! I enjoy meeting different people and figuring out issues that arise during the construction process.

What’s Your Favorite Lunch Spot?

 Any Mexican Restaurant

What Is Your Go-to Coffee Order?

For caffeine, I usually drink a Miami Vice Loaded Tea, but if I’m ordering from Starbucks it’s a Cinnamon Dolce Latte.

(Side Note: You’ll almost never see Hunter without some form of caffeine in his hand. Other honorable mentions are the White Monster and Diet Mountain Dew.)

Hobbies Outside of Work?

Spending time with my family, hunting, fishing, and cheering on the Memphis Tigers and Atlanta Braves!!

Share A Silly or Sweet Work Memory!

There are so many! We have had some really fun memories from our work trips, but I really enjoy our annual trip to donate Christmas Gifts to an organization that reaches out to kids in the Memphis area. Magnolia Homes has been doing this for years now and it is always a treat to see the excitement on each kids face.

If you were stranded on a deserted island and you were able to choose one coworker to be stranded with, who would you choose and why? 

Chuck Barrett. He is very handy, resourceful, and can make something out of nothing. We both like to hunt and fish so I do not think we will go hungry. We would have to figure out a way to build a TV so we can keep up with the Memphis basketball and football games.

Wonderful responses, Hunto! We love having you on our team – you keep us humble, in line, and full of laughter. Although this is the very last employee spotlight for 2023, we’re only halfway through our list of employees! We will continue next year with the rest of our amazing staff!
