Every once in awhile, we like to share a little about our great team here at HRI.
In this article, we sit down with Joe Roller and share some of his thoughts on life, work and family.
What is the one thing you cannot resist?
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
Play the piano.
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?
If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Eggs, bacon, fruit, toast, and coffee.
Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?
Silistra, Bulgaria. I was sent there as part of a team to advise the former soviet town on how to take on self-management skills after the collapse of the Soviet Union and its centralized leadership mode of city management. I found the people to be extraordinary in their desire and efforts to excel and lift themselves up. They were inspirational.
What’s been one of your proudest moments working at HRI?
When I get to see the honesty of Tony Miller in his everyday dealings with his agents and how he conducts business.
What’s the weirdest job you ever had?
Weirdest was also the most unpleasant and it was cleaning the insides of the huge oil storage tanks at an oil refinery “tank farm” near Ponca City, Oklahoma. We had to clean them up so that leaks could be repaired. The temperatures and fumes in the tanks were very unpleasant.
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
Own a vineyard.
