Our Core Values Guide Our Team

Be Present

We get it, we’re here for you. How often have you hired a team only for them to show up at milestones and not be present through the process? Our team is dedicated to continually checking in, reporting on and actively monitoring your project for your updates and guidance.

We won’t over schedule ourselves and we make your project a priority from day 1.

Be Intentional

We believe that every email, subject and piece of a project deserves our consideration, intervention and action for your plan to be successful. The details of a project can make or break a project’s schedule, quality or cost. We look to champion your vision by ensuring the details are addressed.

With your goals, we are always looking ahead to see how today’s decision affect the next steps and the overall deliverables.

Be Adaptive

The “norm” is constantly changing in a technology driven world. Our team is encouraged to be flexible, nimble and yet still maintain the project’s goals. We have come across a custom situation for just about everything.

We have learned to adapt to the situation and instill our management principles to maintain your project’s success.

Our Founder

Derek Hosler is the founder and Principle of Hosler Project Management. His love for architecture, design, and effective project management can be traced back to his job framing houses as a teenager. Decades later, having managed single projects valued at up to $40M for clients as diverse as Hyatt, O'Hare Airport, Axiom Law, and Heartland Community College in 11 different states, Derek founded HPM. 

Derek’s work ethic, past professional experiences and passion for excellence continue to serve clients well.  He is particularly sought out for his ability to mitigate risks, reduce unnecessary costs, provide a single source of communication for all vendor partnerships, and be a strong problem solving partner. His previous jobs, as an architect, hvac contractor, and corporate construction management professional, have all contributed to the unique results Derek now delivers with HPM. 

When he is not at work, Derek is usually found biking, woodworking, chasing the golf ball, or just doing anything and everything with his kids in the suburbs of Chicago.

"Derek is an outstanding professional and world class Project Manager. His skillset extends beyond an understanding of design and construction. He was able to assist my team with various submissions to local jurisdictions, coordinating drawing reviews, and managing the design process with the client. It's rare to find comprehensive well rounded professionals and Derek checks every box."

Patrick Clay
Director Of Business Development at ARCO/Murray

"We worked with Derek on a three floor 70,000 SF project for Axiom Law when they expanded within 33 W. Monroe. The renovation of the three floors included installation of new flooring, ceiling and finishes, and upgrades to audio-visual capabilities and security. Derek was a hands-on project manager and helped the client and all vendors execute a process that led to a successful project all around. I would recommend Derek personally and professionally as a project manager to any client who enjoys detail oriented communication and quick responses."

Tony Iannessa
Founder & CEO at BIG Construction

"I had a great experience working with Derek on an office re-model project in 2019/2020, Derek was brought into the project late and wasted no time getting caught up and kept our project on track. His attention to detail, thoroughness and ability to hold all of our partners accountable to timelines and budget were key. With Derek's expertise, I was able to continue focusing on other areas of our business while having confidence our re-model was moving forward."

Keith Zlatos
Director of Finance (Chicago Region) at Comcast

"I was introduced by a friend to Derek when I had voiced I needed help managing our office planning and build in Nashville - when I was stuck in the UK because of COVID. We got on immediately and he understood the difficulties and the project. Even though it is a 10,000 SF project he definitely gave it his all - and his attention to detail and thoroughness means he literally left no stone unturned in either efficiency of the product or the cost of it. Nothing is too much for him and he readily offers advice and wisdom. I recommend him for projects small and large - and look forward to working with him in the future."
