Chicago-based Lexington Homes, an active homebuilder throughout Chicago and its surrounding suburbs, announces that Nate Wynsma has joined the firm as vice president. In his new role, he oversees land acquisition, disposition, entitlement and development for Lexington Homes.
“We worked with Nate early in his career when he was director of land and later partner at Concord Homes, which was a successful homebuilding company my father, Ron Benach, and his partner, Wayne Moretti, ran until the firm was sold in 2002,” said Jeff Benach, principal of Lexington Homes. “Today, we’re thrilled to have him return to our team and bring with him valuable insight and knowledge from nearly three decades of experience working with various builders in the Chicagoland area.”
Most recently, Wynsma was vice president for Glenview, Ill.-based Ryan Building Group, where he oversaw land acquisition and development operations in multiple divisions from 2013 to 2018.
Benach notes it is an ideal time for Wynsma to join Lexington Homes, as the company is in a period of tremendous growth. “Nate’s experience will be important to our continued expansion and success in the coming years,” he said. “He understands the unique challenges of our strategy of building in both urban and suburban infill locations and has a deep understanding of the townhome and single-family home communities we build.”
Wynsma adds, “It’s wonderful to be back with this exceptional team. I was pretty young when I first worked with these executives and really cut my teeth on land acquisition and growing a homebuilding company, as Concord exploded from 300 homes closed in 1996 to 1,330 homes closed in 2002 when the company was sold. Today, I’m thoroughly impressed with the Lexington Homes team at all levels and excited to work for one of the area’s top builders – especially one that is so well-positioned for growth.”
Wynsma is a graduate of Hope College in Holland, Mich., with a bachelor of arts in business administration and economics, and is an Illinois Licensed Real Estate Managing Broker.
Lexington Homes plans to open sales for nearly 200 additional new homes in 2019. Currently, the firm has projects underway in Arlington Heights, Des Plaines, Morton Grove, Oak Park and Chicago’s Avondale neighborhood.
