BENSALEM, Pa., March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Orleans Homes is pleased to announce the expansion of its North Division land department. With the expansion comes the addition of Sam Carlo and Glen McDonald as Directors of Land, Kent Gough as Land Financial Analyst, as well as the promotion of Tom Imperato to Director of Land. Together, the team is responsible for land acquisitions, contracting and land entitlements. As the top Big Gainer of 2012 and number one fastest growing builder in the nation according to Professional Builder magazine, Orleans is capitalizing on continued operational improvements and ever-improving market conditions with a strategic expansion plan that includes aggressive growth in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. "With a year and a half as Director of Process Improvement for Orleans, Tom is a natural fit to spearhead land expansion in the Delaware and Lehigh Valleys in Pennsylvania," said John Evans, North Division President. "Partnering with Tom to focus on Pennsylvania, we've added Sam Carlo who brings a tremendous amount of experience from his time at Pulte, DeLuca and Lennar." Glen McDonald will focus on land expansion throughout New Jersey, with particular attention in Central Jersey -- a key market for Orleans in 2013. Glen brings a wealth of experience to the team, having held key positions with industry leaders such as Lennar, DR Horton and Toll Brothers. Supporting the Directors of Land is Kent Gough, a Drexel University graduate with a wealth of experience in the homebuilding and real estate industries. Chief Marketing Officer Lee Darnold notes, "With the three Directors securing the very best land available, and Kent crunching the numbers and getting land opportunities approved by our board, we're primed to double down our land acquisition efforts in the region. It's a truly exciting time at Orleans." About Orleans Homebuilders, Inc. Orleans Homes was founded in 1918 and is one of the oldest, continually operated homebuilders in the United States.
