LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. – Neal Communities, southwest Florida’s most experienced homebuilder, recently promoted Carl Allen to an area construction manager and Mark Dolan to a builder.
Allen joined Neal Communities as a builder in July 2013. With over 20 years of extensive construction knowledge, he previously worked for national builders in Florida and constructed large-scale military housing in Kansas.
Since joining the Lakewood Ranch-based homebuilder, Allen has built and excelled in Neal Communities’ prominent communities, including Central Park, Milano and Grand Palm. Due to his success, Allen was promoted to a project manager in 2015 and continued to demonstrate his tenacity, leadership and dedication.
“We are pleased to recognize Carl and Mark with these well-deserved promotions,” said Josh Hoot, director of construction for Neal Communities. “Their proven contributions to the team have benefited the culture of Neal Communities as well as our customers. We wish them continued success in their new positions.”
Dolan joined the Neal Communities’ warranty team in September 2013, taking on a key role of lead warranty technician for the Lakewood Ranch-based builder’s most active communities. He brought over 15 years of experience in the construction industry to its team.
In this role, Dolan gained a thorough understanding of managing customer expectations, overseeing repairs and developing customer service techniques, which led to his transition to an assistant builder position in 2015. After several months training, Dolan took on additional construction-related activities and successfully completed several homes for customers.
Currently, Neal Communities employs 264. In 2016, the homebuilder added 97 new staff members to its team.
