Gregg Carlson, CEO of Lee Wetherington Homes, was recently honored with the “Builder of the Year” award by the Sarasota-Manatee Building Industry Association (BIA) at its annual awards night.
Carlson earned the award for his outstanding leadership and involvement in the BIA and the homebuilding industry.
A BIA spokesperson said Carlson has “an outstanding reputation in the local community” and has a proven track record of “building excellent relationships and making sure the building industry thrives.”
Carlson has been a member of the BIA for more than 20 years and serves on the Board of Directors and is the current Treasurer.
“Being recognized by local industry leaders for my contributions is a humbling experience,” Carlson said. “When you see the names of those who have won the award in the past it’s a great honor to join their ranks.”
Past winners of the BIA’s Builder of the Year include John Carlson with Core Construction, Dave Wick with Medallion Homes and Lee Wetherington, who won the award twice.
