Statement from Tenaska CEO and Vice Chairman Jerry Crouse:
The Tenaska organization congratulates founder and Chairman Howard Hawks on his induction into the Nebraska Business Hall of Fame.
This is a well-deserved honor that highlights the entrepreneurship and foresight that has grown Tenaska from an aspiration into one of the largest private, independent energy companies in the U.S. Today, we are 700 employees strong, yet our corporate culture remains rooted in Howard’s founding principles: a strong work ethic with the highest standards of excellence, a commitment to pursue value for customers and partners, and relationships built on trust and fair dealing.
Because of Howard, Tenaska is the industry leader, and the stable employer, it is today.
His leadership continues outside of the office, too. The Hawks’ philanthropy and community involvement has set a strong example for others.
I know that Tenaska employees are proud of Howard’s legacy and actively work to preserve the Tenaska reputation that’s been decades in the making.
