Perry began his development career in 1972 when he joined the Sea Pines Company at River Hills Plantation near Charlotte, N.C. He later moved to Richmond, Virginia to join the team at Brandermill where he became senior vice president of sales and marketing. In 1983, Roger returned to North Carolina to develop Woodcroft, an 800-acre community located in Durham near Research Triangle Park.

Meanwhile, Florida-headquartered Kaufman Lynn Construction says industry veteran David M. Mooney is its new regional senior vice-president for the firm’s North Carolina operations.

Mooney, with more than 25 years of experience in the construction industry, will be responsible for the overall management and strategic planning of the company’s projects throughout the region.

“The growth opportunities for Kaufman Lynn in the area are tremendous,” says Mooney who was previously vice-president with Samet Corporation in Charlotte. “I’m excited to be joining this industry leader and working alongside a highly-skilled team that’s delivering the exceptional products and quality services to a growing market.”

The company says Mooney’s primary focus is to strengthen the local relationships and continue to growth the company’s presence in the Carolinas.

The company recently completed the Residences at the Prince Charles and is wrapping up work on the adjacent Hay Street Garage in Fayetteville.
