Who We Are

 
 

Chief Executive Officer

Wayne Fanelli

Wayne brings over forty years of industry experience to bear every day at Pleasant Valley.  He began his career in the factory-built housing industry in the mid-1970’s, managing sales and daily operations at manufactured home stores in western Pennsylvania.  In 1982, he co-founded Pine Grove Manufactured Homes, which became one of the most respected and sought-after producers of HUD-Code single-section and multi-section manufactured homes in the nation.  In the early 2000’s, a newly-built manufacturing center began production of custom modular homes as Pleasant Valley Homes.   A decade later, Pleasant Valley has become a premier builder of custom modular homes in the northeast and mid-Atlantic United States.


Vice President

Lee Fanelli

Also with over forty years of industry experience, Lee oversees all production and quality control operations—including procurement, engineering, all aspects of construction, and quality assurance.  In the 1970’s, Lee began his career leading field-installation crews that specialized in the on-site erection and completion of manufactured and modular homes.  Over the years, Lee has overseen thousands of projects throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio and Maryland, and he brings the resultant knowledge and experience to work every day in our manufacturing center.
