March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Orleans Homes is pleased to announce that
Kyle Rush has accepted the role of director of sales and marketing for the company's Charlotte Division.
In his role, Mr. Rush will lead the planning and execution of sales and marketing initiatives in the Charlotte Division, while working closely with the Charlotte Division President and
Orleans' corporate office, to support the company's overall vision and promote its continued growth.
"I've been involved in the homebuilding industry for some time now, and what really struck me about
Orleans was the company's culture," Kyle explains. "They can offer all the opportunity of a much larger homebuilder, but within a true small-company atmosphere. In addition, I am able to have an impact on the company outside of the realm of sales and marketing as a team member affecting the overall business."
Rush has acquired a wealth of knowledge and more than a decade of experience within the homebuilding industry, including positions with companies including Lennar, Centex, and KB Home.
Most recently, Mr. Rush was Executive Vice President for Peachtree Communities,
Atlanta's second largest builder, where he helped manage the organization's
South Carolina and
Atlanta markets. In 2012, Rush was responsible for a 129% increase in volume and revenue in the
South Carolina markets and directed a 69% increase in net sales year-over-year in the
Atlanta, GA market for Peachtree.
Chief marketing officer
Lee Darnold notes, "Kyle is well-versed in the
Charlotte market, having worked with several homebuilders in the region, and after the outstanding results he was able to achieve in
South Carolina and
Atlanta last year, we're excited to see the positive impact he'll have for us in
