He has proven his ability to lead through times of challenge and change, which we have experienced in the recent market downturn."
Croft, who starts on March 13, will be responsible for overseeing Dominion's division operations (Ohio and Kentucky) including strategic direction, capital allocation, organizational development, operational performance, project approval and product development, and will spearhead the Company's expansion projects.
"This is just the opportunity I've been looking for," Croft said. "Dominion Homes has a reputation for quality and innovation, and I'm excited to be aligned with a Company that doesn't just want to reach the next level, but wants to be the best it can be on every level."

Croft began his career with Price Waterhouse & Company (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) supervising accounts in the Detroit area.
