Uniontown, OH – Wayne Homes has announced that VP of Construction George Murphy has been named the company’s new President, succeeding current President and CEO David Logsdon. According to Logsdon, who will remain as CEO, the appointment marks an important step in the company’s planned succession strategy.
“Our commitment has always been to provide an exceptional homebuilding experience for our customers from their very first visit on. It is important to create a succession plan that preserves that commitment. George has consistently demonstrated his ability to lead our team while maintaining our culture, mission and values,” says Logsdon.
Murphy championed the company’s National Housing Quality award, the industry’s highest prize for quality. The company has also received the Builder Partnerships Achievement Award for exceptional customer service and received the Golden Hammer Award for the last three consecutive years. Vice President of Marketing Maurie Jones credits Murphy’s leadership as a key factor in the company’s success.
“As a former owner of his own custom homebuilding company, George understands the building process from the customer’s perspective. His leadership inspires our employees to achieve excellence in the quality of our homes and the relationships that we form with our customers,” says Jones.
Murphy began his homebuilding career 20 years ago as a custom home builder and later worked as a Regional Director for T.K. Constructors. Murphy joined Wayne Homes in 2003 as President of the Louisville Division and was promoted to VP of Construction in 2005.
“I have a deep respect for all of my teammates and what they have accomplished. My goal is to maintain our high standards of quality, culture, and buyer experience while pursuing new opportunities for growth,” says Murphy.
Logsdon agrees: “For us, it’s very simple—we build one home and one relationship at a time. I’m extremely proud of our team’s ability to do that more than 400 times per year.”
