Minouche Herrmann-Tross

Minouche Herrmann-Tross joined HWM in 2022 as the Director of Operations.  With a diverse background in marketing, management and real estate, she brings a world of varied experience to her role here. She’s incredibly detail-oriented and thrives on making systems and processes better, but as you will experience, business is very much about person to her. You are never just a name, which works beautifully in HWM’s culture.  She’s the perfect fit to the now four-person team!

Minouche holds a Bachelor of Science in Marine & Freshwater Biology from the University of New Hampshire. An athlete from early on, she played field hockey into college and left New Hampshire with an appreciation for ice hockey, which she tried to bring to life in her years of living out in Colorado.  Many bruises later she hung up her skates and indulges herself in the softball, kickball and volleyball rec leagues in Asheville.  She’s a huge football fan, and there seems to be turmoil developing in the office over the pro vs college debate! To be continued…

Born in Venezuala, Minouche’s family moved to NY a few years later and that is where she was raised… an hour from NYC in a 200 year old farm house.  After living in New Hampshire, Vermont, Colorado and Tennessee she finally settled in North Carolina in 2007 and has been here ever since.  She has two teenage boys, chickens, ducks, two German-Short Haired Pointers and what she considers the perfect (and tolerable) amount of chaos.  In her spare time, of which there isn’t a ton at present time, she is likely wandering through one of Asheville’s antique/resale shops, working on her Jeep, or doing some remodeling job.  She has a serious passion for working with her hands and is often in the middle of some big tiling job for a friend, or perhaps reworking some piece of furniture or room in her house. There is never a dull moment…
