In Spite of the housing slump and tough economy, one builder is growing.

November 23, 2009

Uniontown, OH – Wayne Homes added two new players to their sales roster.  Melanie Ledger as Sales Manager at the Ashland Sales Center and Tom Sear as Sales Manager at the Sandusky Sales Center.

Ledger has a strong background in customer service and knows Ohio well, having previously covered the state as a Pharmaceutical rep. She’s also worked as an insurance broker in the Canton area, managed a hotel and operated the Stark County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Ledger has been married to high-school-sweetheart Heath (not the that Heath Ledger, obviously) for over 16 years. The two Ohio State Alums have a 9-year-old football, baseball and basketball playing son Alex and a 14-year-old Cockapoo named Sloopy.

Sear brings lots of homebuilding industry experience with him, having been with SDC Homes in Lorain County for over 14 years. Sear also serves as Vice President on the North Coast Builders Industry Association Board of Directors.

Sear and his wife of 10 years Jonelle, an interior designer, live with their sons Tommy, 8, Ethan, 6, and one-year-old Elliot in Grafton on the Black River in their custom timber frame home. The family of wrestlers and football players benefit from dad’s coaching.

“Melanie and Tom fit right in,” says Tracy Gershom, Wayne Homes Vice President of Sales. “We’re always working to improve service. And adding more, quality people to the team goes a long way toward providing the best possible customer experience.”
