About Havelock Wool
Connect with the Havelock Flock
It is our goal to produce a truly superior building product with unrivaled integrity. We seek to work with those who appreciate the value of alternative building products and a healthier, more sustainable ecosystem. We are actively building consumer awareness concerning “traditional” toxic building materials.
Andrew is founder and managing partner of Havelock Wool. He has a passion for all things New Zealand, where the company procures its wool, that is mirrored by a desire to affect positive change in the built environment. He has lived and traveled around the world and seeks to leverage those experiences in bringing a biophilic, best practice to an industry known to contribute excessive waste to our world.
Andrew is a high-energy individual who is uncomfortable without entirely too much to do. Studies include University of Chicago Booth School of Business (MBA, Finance) and Hampden- Sydney College (BA, History).
Josh Schohn – Director Of Sales
Josh Schohn is originally from Massachusetts. He joined Havelock Wool as the Director of Sales. After graduating from UMass Amherst in 1999, he immediately moved west to start enjoying the Lake Tahoe community and its many outdoor resources.
Josh’s extensive background in both the sales and service industries make him particularly well-suited as our Director of Sales. He’s eager to leverage his previous experiences in driving sales and customer relationships across each segment of our channel partners.
In his spare time, Josh recreates in the Reno/Tahoe area with his wife and 2 screaming children.
Philip Walsh, CPHT – Director Of Marketing
Philip joined us in 2019 as Director of Marketing.
After working for 15+ years in finance, Philip decided to try something totally new and dove head first into the world of digital marketing. He became a managing partner for a digital agency in Boston MA before starting his own marketing consultancy. What started as a part time project for Havelock Wool became a full time role in 2019.
Aside from building the Havelock Wool brand, Philip is very passionate about getting outside, be it running, hiking, climbing or just chasing his kids.
Peter Blanchard – Director Of Logistics
Peter has been kind enough to occupy a few seats at Havelock and recently jumped on the logistics grenade. Peter graduated from Duke University in 1999 and moved to San Francisco. After 8 years in finance he was happy to leave the trading community for greener pastures at the Presidio Graduate School where he earned an MBA in Sustainable Management in 2012. He plays a leading role in sustainability projects at Havelock while working ferociously to ensure on-time deliveries to an ever-increasing customer base.
Arlan Lilleioen – Facilities Manager
There is very little Arlan hasn’t experienced and even less that he’s not capable of sorting out. His skill set spans from flying to writing code. There aren’t many others who are comfortable when it comes to the intricacies of our 60 year old, repurposed, insulation production machinery. And lest we not forget he was a deputy sheriff too!
Calvin Patmont – Director of Production and Engineering
Calvin Patmont, a Bay Area native and Boston University alum, serves as Havelock Wool’s Director of Production and Engineering. Joining in 2023 with a background spanning batteries to airships, Calvin’s central mission is spearheading our new manufacturing line. Beyond his professional pursuits, he’s an avid biker, and coffee roaster. Weekends often find him adventuring with his wife and son.
