I was born in Washington, D.C., on December 8, 1941. I lived in Arlington, VA, until the age of 11 when my family moved to Phoenix, Arizona. I was called to serve in the Brazilia South Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for 2 -½ years. Afterward, I graduated from BYU with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management. While at BYU, I married my sweetheart, Margie. After spending twenty years in Southern California, we moved to Provo, Utah in 1987. We currently live in Orem, Utah. Margie and I have been married for 51 blissful years. We have nine children and 34 grandchildren.
I am the CEO of Horne Management Group. The company is a hotel management and development company and has also been or is involved in projects including a master-planned community which included the founding of the city of Saratoga Springs, Utah; various commercial projects including hotel development, student housing, custom homes, development of a 125-acre commercial site, industrial warehouses, and the development and management of an 18-hole golf course and clubhouse known as Talon’s Cove Golf Course located in Saratoga Springs, Utah.
I enjoy learning about others’ lines of business and the opportunity to discuss their entrepreneur ventures.
If you and your word can be trusted, you will find success in any legitimate line of business. Treat others with fairness, kindness, and respect regardless of background or so-called “financial status.” Your word should be just as important as a written contract.
