“I’ve benefited from being able to touch all of HTC’s different areas – product development, strategy, customer service and pricing,” Hendrick told the magazine. “Being a smaller company, we’re specialized, but we’re also jacks of all trades.”

Among the many initiatives Hendrick was recognized for was his role in a brief blackout of a local station in 2018.

“Sandy knew how important it was for him and our other members” to resolve the situation quickly, Judy Meyka, NCTC’s Executive Vice-President said. “He has a great relationship with a lot of our members and I think they look to him for his support and input.”

Hendrick lives in Conway with his wife and two children, is active in the local tennis scene and is a member of the local Kiwanis Club.
