Homebuilding entrepreneur concludes Keystone series

May 8, 2006

KALAMAZOO--A local homebuilding entrepreneur will make the final presentation as the sixth annual Keystone Community Bank Breakfast Speaker Series concludes Friday, May 19, with a presentation at Western Michigan University.

Greg DeHaan, senior vice president of Allen Edwin Homes, will present a talk titled "Homebuilding 101" at 7:30 a.m. in the Dean's Conference Room (Room 2150) of Schnieder Hall, home of the WMU Haworth College of Business.

DeHaan is a 1984 graduate of Loy Norrix High School. After graduating from Loy Norrix, he attended Kalamazoo Valley Community College through 1985. In 1988, he founded Sanderson & DeHaan Irrigation with his childhood friend Scott Sanderson. With the successful growth of the sprinkling business, DeHaan and Sanderson decided to pursue their dream of homebuilding and began Allen Edwin Homes in 1994.

DeHaan's vision has been central to the success of Allen Edwin Homes. Under his leadership, Allen Edwin Homes' mission has been to make it easier, more cost-effective and more enjoyable for people to find the home of their dreams.

This is the sixth presentation in this year's series. Sponsored by Kalamazoo-based Keystone Community Bank, the series offers community members, entrepreneurs, business leaders and other guests an opportunity to discuss important business issues. The free event is open to the public. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (269) 387-5050. Parking is available in the nearby Fetzer Center parking lot.
