Each July 1st a new President takes the helm for a year. Please welcome our newest President of the Rotary Club of Hollister. 
Richard Holdaway has been in the construction industry since his youth. Growing up in Gilroy, he started young as an apprentice to his father’s Electrical Contracting company. After serving a two-year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, he returned to the industry. He spent six years as a project manager/superintendent for large home building companies. Needing change in his life, he pursued an opportunity to work for a large catering and property management company in Sweden. He rose through the ranks quickly, eventually standing as Logistics Construction Manager. For nearly 10 years, he held his position and watched that company grow tremendously. Richard is married to Sissela Holdaway. They have three kids, Enya (18), Eli (16), Eila (8). He is bilingual in Swedish, a member of the Hollister Rotary, a member of San Benito County Chamber of Commerce, Captain of the local Bearded Villains Chapter (a charity organization), and an active member in his church. He is an Eagle Scout and a Certified General Contractor. He loves working out and spending time with his family.
