After Daniel graduated from the University of Tennessee – Knoxville in 1998, he took a position with Wood Partners as an Assistant Estimator for their construction company. In the last 12 years, Wood Partners has built and developed over 30,000 apartment units throughout the country. Daniel worked at Wood Partners for almost a year before coming to work for his father, David, at Hathaway Development Company (HDC), which was based in Macon, GA.
At HDC, Daniel started out as an onsite Assistant Project Manager at the Mercer University Student housing project in Atlanta under the direction of Mike Muggridge. The student housing project in Atlanta, as well as it’s (much larger) sister project in Macon, were HDC’s first opportunities to build for a 3rd party client. Once these projects were completed, in January of 2001, David challenged Daniel and Mike to develop HDC into a regional General Contractor focusing on multi-family housing in the southeastern US.
From 2001-2005, Daniel worked his way up from Assistant Project Manager to Project Manager, building over 3,000 units in several states throughout the southeast. During that same time, Daniel worked closely with Mike Muggridge to develop Hathaway Constructions’ policy and procedures by which all of Hathaway projects are built. During his career with Hathaway Daniel has constructed more than 12,000 apartment units, located throughout the southeast.
Mr. Hathaway is now the President of Hathaway Construction Services, and serves on the Board of Directors for the Capital City Club in Atlanta, as well as the Ocmulgee Chapter of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). He is a member of the Atlanta Apartment Association, the U.S. Green Building Council, The Association of Building Contractors (ABC), as well as the Young Presidents Organization (YPO).
