Following in his father's footsteps, Hoyt Hsiao, President & CEO of Shaw-Lundquist, was inducted into the National Association of Minority Contractors Hall of Fame in June, at the NAMC 47th Annual National Conference. The Hall of Fame honors member who have established themselves over the years by their professional achievements, and their contribution to the NAMC community.


Hoyt father, Fred Shaw was a founding member of the NAMC- Upper Midwest Chapter in 1983, received an award for Outstanding Individual Performance in 1992, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2004. Hoyt and Fred are among the 46 NAMC Hall of Fame members.


“I think the importance of the NAMC can be demonstrated by the relationships we have developed over the years with various organizations. Home Depot, Wal-Mart, MGM Resorts, 3M, Wells Fargo, to name a few, are all clients of ours and are clients we can continue to grow relationships with. It is important to be involved and make connections.” Hoyt noted in his acceptance speech.

Shaw-Lundquist’s mission of Building Better Lives with Integrity and PRIDE compliments NAMC’s goal to provide access to opportunity, advocacy and contract development training for minority contractors throughout the country. As one of the largest Asian Owned Contractors in the Nation, Shaw-Lundquist recognizes the importance of the NAMC’s contributions to minority contractors and the construction industry as a whole.


“I get the recognition, but the credit goes to a lot of people including our team at Shaw- Lundquist,” Hoyt continued. He then went on to thank Shaw-Lundquist clients, buyers and vendors, and his family; including his late father Fred, his mother Jennie, his wife Zhen Zhen, and his brother and business partner Holden Hsiao.
