Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Lohn always enjoyed seeing how things were put together. As a child sitting in traffic on 610, he was amazed with all the tower cranes around the Galleria area. What little did he know at that time, those tower cranes belonged to Harvey projects. While in high school, Lohn was in band and played the clarinet, bass-clarinet, tenor saxophone, baritone and tuba. After graduating from the University of Houston in 1995, he joined Harvey as a full-time employee. While in college, he worked as an intern for Kelly Hall and Bruce Mattila. His first Harvey project was the Allen Center Renovation where he was in charge of completing punchlist items for the restroom renovation and sprinkler retrofits.
In 1995, after graduating from college (a stipulation of Karen’s because she was already working as a teacher), Lohn and Karen were married. They have two sons, Luke and Zack. Completing their home is Dixie, their black lab. During his downtime, Lohn enjoys bird hunting, fishing and grilling. Lohn is currently the Chairman of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Greater Houston. In addition to ABC, he is on the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLSR) Mutton Bustin’ Committee and a member of ULI.
