Dan Hofmann probably didn’t envision his life unfolding this way after a career focused on parking and transportation in major metropolitan cities such as New York City and Boston. But now with a wife on staff at the university and a daughter who recently graduated, Hofmann can’t imagine being anywhere else.

Hofmann is in the midst of his seventh year as director of Parking and Transportation Services, a demanding job that calls for a great amount of leadership and ability to work with others. He has instituted a number of innovations on Clemson’s growing campus and in today’s podcast speaks at length about those projects, his background in the Northeast, his role as president of the Staff Senate, as well as some of the misconceptions about the work his department does.
