BENSALEM, Pa., Sept. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Orleans Homes North division is pleased to announce that Dana Romano and Matt Berkis have been promoted to Directors of Sales and Marketing. The promotions are the second this year for Ms. Romano and Mr. Berkis–rewards for their hard work and leadership.
Ms. Romano and Mr. Berkis have spent their careers with Orleans Homes, steadily adding responsibilities, including critical roles in developing Orleans’ college recruitment program.
“The best part about my Orleans experience has been the guidance I’ve received from so many great mentors,” Ms. Romano said. “Now I enjoy helping the next group of talented Orleans employees shape their career paths.”
Ms. Romano has been on a quick ascent since joining Orleans in 2005 as a Sales Representative. Mr. Berkis came to Orleans from Temple University, beginning as an intern through the company’s college recruitment program. Matt has been with the company for 10 years.

Orleans’ career development program begins with recruiting college interns. Young professionals are mentored and prepared for promotion from the moment they start work.
