“MCS employees nominated Hank because he’s worthy to win,” said Jessica Breazeale, PR & Marketing Director at MCS, Inc.
“He began his career at 21-years-old as a licensed residential home builder, building 150 homes in 10 years and developed several residential subdivisions in the South Mississippi region. He started MCS Insulation in 2002 and MCS Building Supply in 2009 in Sumrall. He also owns Covington Ridge Retirement Home in Collins and Magnolia Place Retirement Home in Sumrall. He served in the Mississippi House of Representatives from 2012-2016 but chose not to seek re-election rather to focus on growing his businesses instead. See why he’s so deserving…he’s done a lot for this area. We could go on and on and on but…we won’t. We just nominated him and are proud he won the award. He’s more than deserving of it!” said Breazeale.
