Take Control of Your Future: Tips for Successful Aging!

From Brian Gentry

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

Dear Friends,
With the support of my family, I recently announced to our team that I will be leaving the day-to-day operations of Landed Gentry Homes and Communities effective October 10th. It was a difficult decision to pare back my involvement with the family owned company where I have spent my entire career.

I’ve truly enjoyed my time being on the front lines as a homebuilder and community developer. These past 14 years have been full of opportunities to learn from phenomenal growth and extremely difficult times. Though the thing I am most proud of is that in spite of a difficult environment, we have a team that is still building brand new homes that are meeting the lifestyle needs of individuals and families across the region.

The general management duties will be spread amongst other senior managers of the company; Kendra Gentry-Decker, Kendall Gentry and Dave Moreland. I will remain on the company board, provide behind-the-scenes support and select special project work.

I want to thank my parents, Kendall and Nancy Gentry, the founders of Landed Gentry, for the opportunity to lead and build this amazing team of people that I have been privileged to work alongside every day. They gave Kendra and me enough freedom to be a part of transforming this company into something that is hardly recognizable from what it was over a decade ago.

Though I will miss the being here on a daily basis, Landed Gentry will always be a part of me. Landed Gentry’s future continues as we leverage the benefits of persevering through these times. I look forward to what is next for us all.

Wishing you all my best,

Brian Gentry
