In 1953, George Elmore and his wife, Wilma, began their paving business. Two trucks, a modest loan and an emerging entrepreneurial spirit became what is today Hardrives, Inc.

With the enduring support and assistance of Wilma, the business evolved into one of the most prominent paving and contracting operations in the county. As the company grew, George became a catalytic and influential force in Palm Beach County.

Believing that you should return to the community what the community has done for you, George’s philanthropic ventures have included both time and dollars. He continues to serve on numerous boards and committees, and is on his second term on the Community Foundation board. He has several donor advised funds at the Community Foundation that support nonprofits in the areas of science, education and entrepreneurism.
