This week is the National Association of Home Builder’s Professional Women in Building Week!
NAHB Professional Women in Building Week celebrates women as a visible component of the residential construction industry and collectively raises awareness of their contributions through activities that promote, enhance, and support women within the industry.
Today we’re celebrating “Women-Owned Wednesday“; which is extra special to us at DanRic Homes because we are a proudly Women-Owned Company! This year, our owners, sisters Darby Durand Pippin and Kelly Durand Cain; are celebrating their 10th year of success since taking full leadership of DanRic Homes from their father, founder Dan Durand.
Darby and Kelly first entered the home building industry, under their father’s guidance in 1998 and 2005, respectively. After working their way up the company ladder and learning all of the facets of home building and company ownership, the sisters took full leadership in 2009. In addition to running their successful home building company, Darby and Kelly also serve on the Board of the West Georgia Home Builders Association; which has helped them further earn their place in the male-dominated homebuilding industry.
Today, Darby and Kelly share a company vision based on three principles – provide, support, and give. (1) Provide quality homes backed by superior warranties. (2) Support employees by providing a “family first” workplace environment. (3) Give back to the communities in which they build, through donations of their time and resources.
Today and every day, we’re proud of our fearless female leaders and we can’t wait to see where their vision takes us next! If you’d like to learn more about our company’s roots and where we’re going, please read our full bio on our website – http://www.danric.com/our-story
