Maggie Hardy Magerko
President & Owner
Passionate, dedicated and fearlessly committed to success. That’s Maggie Hardy Magerko. At an age when most women are just starting their career, Maggie took over the leadership of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in 2000 from her father, Joseph A. Hardy III, who purchased the resort at auction in 1987.
Consistently recognized in the travel industry for superior customer service, luxurious accommodations, award-winning spa and dining, four-season amenities and as a first-class meeting destination, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort is a 2,000 acre resort with plenty of amenities and accolades to tout, including:
- AAA Five-Diamond Rating (Falling Rock & Lautrec)
- Forbes Five-Star (Lautrec)
- Condé Nast Travelers Reader’s Choice
- Premier Golf Resorts: Gold Award, Golf Magazine
- America’s 100 Best Resort Golf Courses, Golfweek
- America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses, Golf Digest
- Top 100 Spas of America, Spas of America
- Wine Spectator
- Certificate of Excellence, TripAdvisor
From luxury to lumber, Maggie is also the President and Owner of 84 Lumber Company, the nation’s leading privately held supplier of building materials, building supplies, manufactured components and industry-leading services for single- and multi-family residences and commercial buildings.
Maggie’s energetic approach and aggressive goals have been critical success factors in 84 Lumber’s operation and growth. Under Maggie’s leadership, 84 Lumber refocused concentration on its original niche – the professional market – helping the company top $1 billion in sales for the first time in 1994 and $2 billion in 2004.
A $2.86 billion company in 2016, Maggie has made a number of strategic moves for 84 Lumber, navigating through difficult times to strengthen the company’s position as the leader in professional contractor sales. She strikes a delicate balance between maintaining 84 Lumber’s traditional approach to doing business, and adapting to meet the ever-changing needs of the customer.
Leadership and growing the business is only one side of Maggie. Her family is the other side. Her husband Pete, a former U.S. Marine and Pennsylvania State Trooper is now her biggest supporter. And always, her best friend.
Mention her son P.J. and it’s clear how proud she is of him and his achievements. P.J. is a graduate of the Tisch School of the Arts and has written and directed the film Beyond the Backyard. P.J.’s first foray into film was indeed a family affair. Not only did he write and direct it, he convinced his parents and grandfather to star in it! And now he’s hitting the festival circuit to showcase this immensely personal film.
Under Maggie’s leadership, 84 Lumber Company and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort is a nationally certified Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) company.
