Ronnie Richards Retiring from Manufactured Housing Industry

June 11th, 2014 Comments off

After a long and storied career in the manufactured housing industry spanning 45 years, 29 of them with what is now American Homestar Corp., MHProNews has learned Ronnie Richards is retiring, as he transitions into a family-owned business, Butler’s Courtyard, a popular event venue in Houston. Ronnie joined Homestar (then called Mobile America) in 1980 when the company had several retail stores and an insurance company, helping to realize performance records until the energy crunch in the late 1980s when refurbishing and re-selling repossessions became the order of the day, a process in which Ronnie was instrumental. He briefly joined Clayton Homes in the early 1990s and then returned to his marketing position with Homestar. He will continue as a consultant to the company, as a volunteer with several community organizations, and will spend time with his seven grandchildren.

He says: “I leave with mixed emotions as I look forward to this new chapter but step back from the industry that fed my family, put three daughters through college (and) allowed me to meet so many close friends.” Buck Teeter, founder and CEO of Homestar says: “Over his many years, Ronnie has made significant contributions to the company’s success. I truly appreciate the hard work, dedication and loyalty he has displayed as a valuable, long term member of our team.” ##

View Oak Creek’s Homes with Mobile App

March 28th, 2013 Comments off

PRWeb reports from Houston, Texas that while noting more internet searches for homes are being done on mobile devices rather than desk or lap tops, Oak Creek Homes has developed a mobile version of its website, enabling shoppers to view the entire line of manufactured and modular homes and request information. The Oak Creek Homes Mobile App will also indicate any current “Specials, as well as locate, by GPS tracking, the nearest dealer. An Android version is expected to hit the shelves soon. Saying “this is a first for the factory built home industry,” Ronnie Richardson, Oak Creek’s Chief Marketing Officer, adds, “You don’t want a home buyer visiting your web site on their smartphone to get frustrated because all they can see is a tiny version of your web site.” As MHProNews has learned, Oak Creek is part of American Homestar, an employee-owned (partially) company  working in manufacturing, finance, insurance, and retail.
