We are proud to announce that our Founder and Chairman, Raymon B. Fogg, Sr., received an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Ohio University at its commencement ceremony on May 2, 2014. Mr. Fogg, who founded his company in 1959, has overseen it’s progress to become one of the premiere design/build firms in the region, building over 5,000 projects. In addition, he has developed numerous industrial and business parks and is the CEO of over 50 companies which own and manage over 2,500,000 square feet of industrial and office space in Ohio and Michigan.
Aside from his entrepreneurial endeavors, Mr. Fogg is a longtime humanitarian and philanthropist who has served on many boards of service organizations. Over the course of his lifetime, he has made significant humanitarian contributions through personal charitable work in developing nations, including Guatemala, Honduras and Somalia. In these regions, his building expertise has had a profound effect on the local community and improving quality of life through sound construction of homes, churches, schools and other community spaces. Through the dedication of his time, talents and equipment at his disposal, he has been able to make a significant impact on individual lives and has provided emergency medical transportation as a pilot, ensuring that relief supplies and construction management services were sent to communities in dire need of such assistance.
His involvement with Ohio University is equally impactful. Mr. Fogg is a Trustee Emeritus of The Ohio University Foundation Board (2002-2012). He also is a member of the Ohio University Russ College of Engineering and Technology Board of Visitors, the Department of Civil Engineering Advisory Board, and that department’s Advisory Board for Construction Engineering Management – a program he conceived, championed and saw implemented as a board member.
The Fogg Team celebrates this achievement and looks forward to its founder being Dr. Fogg!
