Meet our Foundation Sponsors
Home Builders Association of Jackson members should take notice of 5 special companies that have committed to being Foundation Sponsors for 2012. They have many things in common: the understanding of marketing their companies, involvement and active participation in their industry, successful attitudes, and strong company support for the home building industry, among many others. It’s not a surprise that these companies have been supporters of HBAJ not just this year but for many years.
Atmos Energy is a huge supporter of the Parade of Homes and encourages their many members to be involved in committees and to attend HBAJ events. Marsha Barber shares her wisdom with the HBAJ staff on specific projects as well as brainstorming ideas for the future. Atmos brings many talented employees as members including Neal Mashburn, Bob Kerley, Chip Shotts, Willie Alexander and Mildred Nelson. They build solid relationships with our members.
BancorpSouth has given HBAJ several active members as well as financial contributions for many years. Joe Robertson
has served on the Board for countless years and also served as Associate Vice President. Pam Hart, Barbara Edwards, Andy Barksdale, among other BancorpSouth employees, including Joe McNeese, Cynthia Thomas, Clyde Guyse, Robert Quarles, Kim Jent, and Ernie Turner have served on many committees and actively attend events throughout the year. Joe Robertson keeps a watchful eye to make sure Associate members are represented within the Association.
HouseWorks – Jeff Salmons and Bob Dodson have been members for years as Jeff has used each year to increase his participation. Jeff currently serves as the Secretary/Treasurer on the Executive Committee. HouseWorks includes HBAJ in their marketing efforts to increase builder referrals for remodel projects and homeowner remodel projects. Houseworks has grown their business to be Insurance Restoration Specialists, working closely with all insurance companies to provide fire, water and wind damaged home owners with one-stop-shop solutions. They have locations that serve customers in the metropolitan Jackson, Starkville, Meridian and West Point areas.
Trustmark – Lee Mitchell has served on the Board for many years. Kevin Kinkade, Marvin Freeman, Jeannie Barrier, Len Reeves, as well as other principal members including George Gunn, have supported the Association with their volunteerism as well as financial commitments. The Association would not be the same without the support of Trustmark.
The association is made up of our members, the Foundation is built by our sponsors. Without the physical and financial support of these outstanding companies, HBAJ would not be as strong as it is today.
