Harold Hastings, a 30-year employee, was named Findorff’s third President and succeeded Milton Findorff. It was the first time that a member of the Findorff family did not hold a leadership position.
During the 1960s, the Company also continued to be heavily involved in the construction of various housing facilities on the UW-Madison campus. In particular, Findorff took on a unique project that would be one of its most challenging endeavors. In an effort to accommodate more guests at Camp Randall Stadium, Findorff was contracted to build a cantilevered balcony on the facility’s west side. Findorff waited only one day after the Badgers 1965 football season ended to start construction.
As Findorff was building much of Madison’s west side including with the Hilldale Shopping Center, Pyare Square building, and CUNA Mutual, the Company continued to support its local community. In 1964, Findorff reached over 400 employees and became the largest firm to hit 100% participation in the United Givers Campaign.
