Project Manager, Mr. Montgomery has contributed to and/or managed dozens of projects at HSP, including numerous sports, entertainment, hotel, mixed-use and convention/expo projects.  Recently, he contributed to the feasibility and impact analysis for a proposed indoor/outdoor youth sports complexes in Orange County, Osceola County and Collier Counties in Florida, as well as a major youth sports complex near New Orleans. Other sports projects include indoor facilities in South Bend-Mishawaka IN, Saginaw and Holland Charter Township, MI and La Vista, Nebraska.
