Meet the Ketmar Team
In May of 1988, Marie Kenton founded Ketmar Development Corporation, an anagram of “Market.” Marie, a Real Estate Broker, believed that the product she was showing could be better, both structurally and architecturally! Her passion has lead her to Design-Build Custom homes that truly reflect the personality of each homeowner she works with. Marie personally works with every client to create a one-of-a-kind architectural design that suits their individual visions!
Charlie joined Ketmar in 1989 with over 20 years experience in framing and construction. Charlie’s pedantic eye and attention to detail, combined with his field experience, has carried Ketmar’s level of quality and craftsmanship to a new altitude! In 2009, Charlie received his Green Builder Certification; his knowledge of Green products and building techniques has again, raised the bar for all Ketmar homes!
Chief Financial Officer
Sharyl joined Ketmar in 2011, with a Bachelors degree in Business and Accounting. She brings more than 20 years of experience to our team. Sharyl works one-on-one with our clients, subcontractors and suppliers to keep Ketmar operating efficiently. An outdoor enthusiast, Sharyl loves her hikes with her dog Max and all opportunities to explore the area’s trails, waterfalls and sight seeing.
Melissa comes to us with degrees in Art History and Interior Design. Her love of architecture, old buildings and great design, bring a perfect complement to our Ketmar team. Melissa’s many years of experience in home remodeling and kitchen & bath design have given her an incredible foundation to support our clients and help them visualize each detail of their home. Outside of Ketmar, you’ll find her hiking, picking up her watercolors or simply spending time with close friends and family.
Great design and creativity are the foundation of her expertise, whether she’s working on a brochure layout or taking photographs of Ketmar’s latest custom homes. Her experience in retail marketing, website design and fine art all contribute to her role as our Marketing Assistant. Outside of Ketmar, she enjoys sharing yoga with classes in Canandaigua, NY.
With a degree in architecture, and over 30 years in residential construction, David joined Ketmar in 2004. He keeps a keen eye on detail as he supervises the construction of each project. His knowledge and hands-on workmanship are an asset to Ketmar and each project he manages. Outside of work he enjoys family time and outdoor sports, mainly paddling rivers or taking time out on the links!
Travis has brought with him creativity, industrious nature and humor each day he’s on the job. His teaching degree in industrial arts and engineering have made him a tremendous addition to our team. When away from Ketmar, you’ll find him working on his farm, in the wood shop, or fabricating some off road monstrosity.
