Tim Brislin


We’re all looking to the future with Harvard Investments. I’m always asking myself ‘Are we keeping our promises of today and are we preparing the company for tomorrow’s needs?’ What keeps me motivated is knowing we’ll be providing what people need in a home, a neighborhood, their work environments. That’s going to constantly change, and we’re staying in front of the changes.
