Springwood is pleased to announce that David Hogg is being recognized with a 2020 Icon Honors award from the Central Penn Business Journal. The publication says, “The Icon Honors awards recognize business leaders over the age of 60 who have left an indelible mark in their fields, and whose integrity, vision and selfless service have lifted up the Central PA community.”
For more than thirty years Dave has fashioned his life to be the pinnacle of what this award recognizes. His leadership at Springwood first positioned the firm as the market leader in affordable housing for seniors in York and Cumberland Counties. When the organization left that industry it became an undisputed leader in the development and management of Hilton- and Marriott- branded hotels in Central Pennsylvania.
Today Springwood manages14 hotels totaling more than 800,000 square feet and more than 1,400 guestrooms.
“We play the game of business with our cards face-up,’” Dave says. “Nothing hidden, even when bad news happens.”
A leader within the community, Dave has served as Vice President of the Logos Academy school board, President of the York County Convention and Visitors Bureau, chaired the Charitable Endowment Fund Committee of the Rotary Club of York, and served on the York County Room Tax Grant Committee. Among many other volunteer roles, he was also a founding member of New Life Presbyterian Church in York and he has been a multiple Boy Scout Merit Badge Counselor. In 2020 he also rolled off of the Young Life York County Committee after 10 years of service.
Hogg has studied the apparent contradictions faced by Christians growing successful businesses. He says, “Dollars define the scoreboard for successful businesses. It’s what we do with those dollars that personally define us for eternity. We must be wise stewards.”
Dave and his wife, Barbara, recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. Springwood’s successful hotel business and his personal service to the community aside, Hogg sees family as his greatest achievement.
“Our two sons have grown into young men of faith and integrity, each successful in his chosen field of endeavor. That’s the most significant accomplishment for which Barb and I enjoy being recognized,” he says.
Hogg adds, “I consider it a true privilege to help our talented Springwood team succeed. As that happens, our trusted investors also succeed. Every day I’m excited to see what new opportunity comes our way. I look forward to helping Springwood tackle those opportunities for years to come.”
