Episode 106 – Joey Havens

November 1, 2017

Joey hooks clients and coworkers with great firm culture


Joey Havens grew up in a small town in Northern Mississippi, spending a lot of his time outdoors fishing for crappie fish and white perch with his brother. Now, he takes his son and grandson fishing, sometimes even in salt water for speckled trout. Joey says fishing gives him a chance to recharge so he can give more energy to the HORNE team, and it humanizes him, allowing other to more easily relate.

In this episode, Joey and I talk about how important it is to take the time to get to know others on a personal level, because “we all crave to connect to other people.” He leads by example, showing everyone at HORNE that it’s okay to be human. This helps everyone develop stronger trust in each other, which only makes the firm stronger and more successful. The biggest shift happened a few years ago when the firm leadership decided to be very intentional about making culture a priority every single day.

Joey Havens is the Executive Partner of HORNE LLP, where he’s been for over 30 years.

He graduated from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor of Business Administration, Accounting degree.
