At HPM, we often reference the phrase “extreme ownership” to describe team members who go above and beyond to own their assignments. Pierre Archaud is an up-and-coming leader of the company, who is valued both internally and by our clients because of his relentless pursuit to understand the details and run to the challenges that come with managing a program. He has incredible attention to detail and pushes himself, his peers, and his client to make timely and informed decisions. His positive attitude and work ethic have cultivated a culture in the teams around him that motivates others to perform at higher levels. We’re thankful for Pierre’s influence at HPM and are happy to promote him from Project Manager to Senior Project Manager.
Pierre has a unique story, as he started with HPM during the first Airbus program as a co-op student from Toulouse, France. After several semesters with us, and upon finishing engineering school in France, he elected to make HPM in the United States his permanent career path. Since moving to the US, Pierre has supported and played a key role in numerous programs for HPM including preconstruction efforts in Birmingham and Auburn, followed by a PM role for the Atlanta Braves, the Airbus A220 program, Fort Smith Public Schools, and recently Manor ISD and Round Rock ISD in Austin, TX. Pierre never backs down from a challenge and is a core member of the HPM family.
“He knows inside and out, how to take a project from concept, guide it through design and procurement, and finish through construction,” said James Adams, HPM Vice President of the West Region. “He knows our business and our way of doing things extremely well, and makes gaining trust from his client and his peers look easy.”
Congratulations on this well-deserved promotion, Pierre! Félicitations!
