Howard Vogel, Principal
A member of the U.S. Green Building Council and a LEED Accredited Professional, Howard focuses on The Walker Group’s sustainability and project management practices. If you are looking to improve building performance through better energy efficiency, or looking for a project manager who cares as much about your mission as you do, Howard is the ideal partner.
With Howard at the helm of our sustainability practice, The Walker Group has helped clients reduce energy costs by more than $10 million, purchase over 15 million kWh of green power and enroll in programs such as the EPA’s Green Power Partnership. Due to these successful initiatives Howard has been asked to speak at events such as The Environmental Excellence in HealthCare conference.
As a project manager, Howard makes a client’s mission his own and looks at the real estate project as a way to help advance that mission. When The Walker Group helped Adventist HealthCare, Inc., to develop its new 47,000 sq. ft. Aquilino Cancer Center on the campus of Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, Howard led the team charged with building the Center. He visited numerous cancer centers and personally talked with their patients in order to make sure the Center he was helping to build would provide all of the services and resources cancer patients and their families might need.
Prior to joining The Walker Group, Howard Vogel was Vice President and General Manager at Shorewood Packaging, a $650 million dollar business of International Paper, and owner of Digitek, which he sold to International Paper in December 2000.
Howard holds a B.S. in Economics from Rutgers University.
