Joel C. McNaughton, 36 The McNaughton Company, Site Development Manager
After Joel C. McNaughton graduated from Villanova, a lot of friends were pressuring him to move to a larger metropolitan area. Instead he returned to Harrisburg and joined the family business, which he now considers the best decision he’s made yet. He appreciates the diversity of cultures and businesses in the Central Pennsylvania area, and that within minutes, people can be in downtown Harrisburg or a rural area. The best business advice he has received was from his grandfather, who taught him to always consider the risks and to know, understand and be comfortable with potential negative outcomes if something unexpected happens. Real estate projects can be unpredictable and take years. He is proud of his successful work-life balance, making sure to have the time to coach, serve on boards and spend time with his family. Most people would be surprised that he is a bit of a closet foodie who loves to cook and try new restaurants.
