Lonn and Alan clicked – they had similar values and an appreciation for the way they enhanced each other’s skills. While at EarthFax they really hit their stride while working at the then active Alma Refinery.

Lonn and Alan decided to take a chance – they left EarthFax. Hamp, Mathews & Associates (HMA) was formed when Lonn and Alan decided to step out on their own to fulfill every entrepreneur’s dream.
