Homebuilder moves manager and promotes from within to accommodate growth.

November 3, 2010

Uniontown, OH – Wayne Homes is finding and developing talented managers to ensure quality customer service continues along with their contrary-to-the-rest-of-the-industry growth. Lisa Sidoti, who started with Wayne as a New Home Consultant, has been promoted to Sales Manager and is now overseeing operations at the Sandusky Model Center. Sales Manager Richard Smothers was moved from Sandusky and is now looking after the Ashland Model Center.

Sidoti’s background in all phases of sales and public relations – from relationship building to project management – along with her strong presentation skills and ability to motivate others makes her a natural to fill the shoes of Smothers. She is also active in the revitalization of downtown Sandusky, a mother of three, Lanie, 17, Tate 11 and Bennett, 10. And a great cook.

Smothers not only has 15 years of construction sales and management experience but his high-energy leadership style and exceptional communication skills perfectly complement the Wayne Homes tradition of award-winning homebuilding and customer satisfaction. It probably helps that in his spare time he’s a stand-up comedian. Smothers’ 24-year marriage to wife Denise, from which they have two kids, Tabetha, 21, and Zachary, 17, is proof he knows how to make things work. His nine years of military service is proof he can handle anything.

“Rich and Lisa have proven themselves,” says Tracy Gershom, Wayne Homes Vice President of Sales. “They have what it takes to lead a customer service team that thrives on creativity and making the impossible possible. These are quality people who make us a better homebuilding company.”
