Fueled by steady revenue growth, Berks County-based builder Berks Homes has expanded its executive team.
Berks Homes – whichis building homes in 10 counties and expects to close about 300 home sales this year – has promoted four people to its leadership team, three of them to C-suite roles.
“We’ve experienced 47 percent growth in revenue this year and we’re projecting that will continue,” President Mike Benshoof said. “This is a direct reflection of the team’s hard work and efforts over the last several years. To better support our regional management teams in eastern, south-central and Central Pennsylvania, we needed to make some changes to the structure of the executive team. These changes will not only allow us to better serve our current market regions but will give us the ability to expand into new markets over the coming years as well.”
Berks Homes finished 2017 with $58.7 million in revenue, according to Business Journal records. The company is getting started on a new project in Dover Township, York County. New homes are in high demand in a housing market with a dearth of existing homes to buy.
The promotions at Berks Homes include:
- Alex Benshoof as COO. Benshoof, Mike’s brother, was hired in August 2017 as vice president of sales and marketing.
- Deb Paine as chief compliance officer and interim vice president of land. Paine has been with the company for more than 30 years and has served in numerous roles, including COO and CFO.
- Tim Rinko-Gay as CFO. He joined the company in July 2016 as accounting cash manager and was promoted to controller last year.
- Katie Detwiler as vice president of sales and marketing. She joined the company in 2003 and has worked in nearly every department in the organization
