Name: Terry Hubbard
Job Description: Living The Dream
Terry's Story: Terry started Peak Environmental Concepts in 1997 at 22 years old. His degree in environmental science and his annual summer landscaping job were the building blocks that propelled him to start this new venture. At that time Terry had one focus, "How do I get a serious summer job that will allow me to ski all winter?" Peak Environmental Concepts was the answer. While the demands of a growing business no longer allowed the ski bum lifestyle, Terry still gets a few days off. He is a volunteer on the Whiteface Ski Patrol and enjoys spending time with his wife Sarah and their two boys. He brews and bottles homemade red wine in his basement and is often observed having a conversation with the television during political shows and presidential debates.
