Karen’s contagious energy helps define the passionate culture at HUTTON, while the volume, pace, and competitive spirit drive the TEAM. “Don’t get comfortable” is Karen’s constant reminder. “If we aren’t creating change and evolving then we are going backwards.” HUTTON’s continued growth is a direct result of the “amazing people on the HUTTON Dream Team.” Together, we have grown our asset base to 3.7 million square feet, and will add 1 million square feet in 2017. This throttle of activity from each person creates a velocity of energy that enables the team to deliver great sites, while consistently meeting deadlines, and exceeding our clients expectations. Karen is influenced by her father, David Hutton, Sr., who lived a fearless work ethic and the humility of her mother, Jean-Marie, shaped Karen’s values and her determination. HUTTON has developed 990 developments in 37 states. Hutton was awarded Chattanooga’s Corporate Philanthropist of the Year in 2014. Karen was named one of 2015’s Top Ten Influential Business Leaders to impact Chattanooga, inducted into UTC’s Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame in 2016, and awarded CGLA’s first ever Founders Leadership Award in 2017. Karen is proud to serve on the Hunter Museum of American Art board of trustees as well as the board for the Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy.
