Inspired Homes Welcomes New President

November 28, 2018

raynard brown inspired homes Inspired Homes recently welcomed Raynard Brown as the company’s new president, a leadership change that will help position the residential construction and development company for accelerated future growth. Delivering an exemplary customer experience has consistently been one of the company’s top priorities. Now, with two key hires, Inspired Homes will be equipped to deliver an even better customer experience, ensuring that the specific needs of Kansas City homebuyers are met. Internally, Inspired Homes is building a team with demonstrable strategic, operational and financial expertise that will guide the company through new growth. “Raynard brings 30 years of diverse experiences in the Kansas City business community to Inspired Homes,” said Ryan Anderson, one of the principals of Inspired Homes’ ownership group. “He has led very successful growth efforts in the past, and we want to leverage that experience in building out our Inspired Homes platform.” Brown joins Inspired Homes from Nucor Steel Recycling Division, where he served as president of both Kansas City-based Advantage Metals Recycling, LLC, and Houston-based Texas Port Recycling, LP. Advantage Metals is the successor company to Galamba Metals Group, where Brown was also president and led the growth and eventual sale of Galamba Metals to Nucor. “I’ve been consulting with Inspired Homes for about 10 months now and have gotten to know the ownership group well,” Brown said. “I understand their vision and the philosophy behind Inspired Homes, and I am certain we can execute that vision in the Kansas City market. I’m excited about the opportunity to lead the highly skilled Inspired Homes team to do that.” Inspired Homes also welcomed Tamara Chambers, the company’s new controller. A results-oriented finance leader, Tamara achieves both efficient accounting processes and strong internal controls, and has a proven track record in bridging the gap between operations and finance. Maintaining a proactive approach to both the business and the metro-wide housing market has always been a key element of Inspired Homes’ long-term vision. A widespread technology roll-out last year, for example, helped make the construction process more efficient for the company and the customer. That resulted in an impressive boost in home sales for Inspired Homes—90 homes sold so far in 2018, up from 30 in 2017. Now, the company’s new leadership will build on that growth with a multi-faceted approach that includes delighting the customer and focusing on their needs while building a fast-growing, financially sound homebuilding operation that leads the Kansas City market in quality, both in home construction and customer experience. “We’re focused on the product and the home buyer,” Brown said. “Inspired Homes has sold a lot of homes, and I think there’s an opportunity to sell even more as we expand our land position throughout the metro area.”

Overall, fantastic experience. We love our house and the finished product. We really enjoyed the build process.
