Neil spent much of his youth working part-time in the plumbing trade with his father and grandfather's
Bennett Plumbing Company businesses. After graduating from St. Ignatius High School in 1949, Neil
started his own carpentry contracting business, framing his first homes in the western suburbs of Fairview Park, Rocky River, North Olmsted and Westlake, all the while attending night classes at John
Carroll University. This soon evolved into a full-service home building and remodeling business, and
the rest, as they say, is history.
Today, Neil still oversees all day-to-day activity of the Bennett
Builders new home, remodeling and commercial construction companies, surrounded by his sons and
grandsons. Neil and his wife, Pilar, live in Bennett Builders home in Westlake and cherish above all
things, spending time with family. Although he may not get out on the links as often as he used to, golf
is his favorite activity. And be warned, his favorite topics outside of real estate and construction are
the Cleveland Browns and Indians, so any conversation involving his teams will not be a short one.
After working for a large public accounting firm and obtaining his CPA certificate, Don rejoined the
family company in 1976. He oversees all accounting, taxes, and other administrative functions of the
company. He is a past president of the Homebuilders Association of Greater Cleveland, and has served
on the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) board of trustees. He is also a former president of the
Westlake Chamber of Commerce, and spent many years coaching youth sports while his kids were growing up.
He lives in a Bennett Builders home in Westlake with his wife of 40 years, Fran, and has three grown children and three grandchildren.
Terry has been building and remodeling homes and light commercial buildings since the 1970s. He holds four professional certifications, is a past president of both the Home Builders Association of Greater Cleveland (HBA Cleveland) and North Coast Building Industry Association (NCBIA - Lorain, Huron & Erie counties), and a Life Director of the Ohio Home Builders Association (OHBA). In May 1995, Terry was chosen National Remodeler of the Month by the National Association of Home Builders. He co-manages our new homes division and handles all marketing, sales and job estimates for our home remodeling division with his son, Dan. Married to Mary for 38 years, they live in Bay Village, have three grown children and two grandchildren. Terry is an avid golfer and loves all Cleveland professional sports teams.
After spending summers during high school (St. Ignatius '95) and college (Dayton '99) working in the
field, Tim returned to Bennett Builders in 2003 and co-manages our new homes division, dealing with anything from initial homebuyer meetings, to estimating and pricing, to scheduling and production, to warranty work. Tim resides in Rocky River with his wife, Katie, and their newborn daughter, and enjoys taking in Cleveland sports, hoping one of these years we'll stop saying "we'll get 'em next year."

divisions, and is responsible for estimating, project supervision, and rental office management. Mark
resides in a Bennett Builders home in Avon Lake with his wife, Kelley, and two children.
