Huntsville, AL, February 09, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Ms. Lee earned her BA in Interior Design at the University of Alabama’s College of Human Environmental Sciences in Tuscaloosa. She got her start at JBH in 1998 when company founder Jeff Benton hired her to merchandise a model home. Ms. Lee most recently served as the company’s vice-president of sales and marketing.
“Wendy joined Jeff Benton Homes when I shared my office with one employee in a trailer,” said Mr. Benton, “and she has been an integral part of our growth and success. She thoroughly understands the homebuilding industry, is totally committed to our company philosophy of putting the customer first, and has earned the deep respect of every member of the Jeff Benton Homes team. Wendy has the vision and the broad leadership experience necessary to take this company to the next level.”
“The chance to serve as President of Jeff Benton Homes is both exciting and humbling,” said Ms. Lee. “The opportunities and challenges are great in every respect. For example, we saw 2010 as an opportunity to fine-tune our brand, identify core values, and assemble a management team comprised of the best talent in the fields of sales and marketing, production, purchasing, estimating and land development. The challenge was to make these improvements in a struggling economy while remaining competitive.
“In 2010 we succeeded, growing the business, despite ongoing national and regional economic challenges. We expect improving market conditions over the next two years to present additional opportunities,” she continued. “Our goal is to leverage the changes we have made to improve the customer experience through communication and teamwork. This will lead in turn to more referral sales, repeat buyers and realtor-assisted sales.”
“This is an exciting time in this company’s history. I cannot imagine a more gratifying honor than to be selected Jeff Benton Homes’ new President.”
