Green Precision Homebuilder, Blu Homes, Welcomes Brett Chisholm as Vice President of Sales – Americas

February 28, 2012

SAN FRANCISCO and WALTHAM, MA — February 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — California and Massachusetts-based green, precision homebuilder, Blu Homes (www.bluhomes.com), is proud to welcome Brett Chisholm as vice president of sales – Americas. With over 15 years of experience in the technology sector building world-class sales teams and consistently beating aggressive sales goals, Brett brings the exceptional credentials and proven track-record necessary to help Blu meet its goals for rapid growth.

Blu is the leading designer and manufacturer of architect-designed, green precision-built homes that have the ability to drop a family’s carbon footprint, energy use, and water use by 70 percent—without sacrificing bright, open floorplans, soaring ceilings and luxury amenities. In addition to providing American families with higher quality construction in almost every measurable way, Blu allows people to design their homes, for free, online, and in 3-D with the Blu Configurator. After leaving its state-of-the-art factory in Vallejo, CA, Blu’s homes are installed on-site in one day and completed in just two weeks by Blu’s teams of craftsmen. This speed and convenience is a result of Blu’s proprietary building science technology, which allows its homes to be folded for quick and cost-effective setting on site. All of this is done at a pre-agreed, fixed cost.

“I am thrilled to be joining Blu Homes on its trajectory to the top,” said Brett. “With Blu’s technology-driven building process and the homes’ innovative designs and strength, I truly believe this company can make our potential customers’ lives more enjoyable. My first order of business is to build a sales team across the North America footprint so we can serve our customers in the best way possible.”

Brett joins Blu Homes from the innovative technology marketplace. Most recently, Brett was the VP of enterprise & mobile sales at Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN), a leading technology provider of voice and language technology solutions for businesses and consumers around the world. At Nuance, Brett and his team closed $75M in new business annually, consistently beating sales goals, while transforming a sales team of three directors and 22 enterprise representatives. Prior to Nuance, Brett held major leadership and sales roles at Viecore, Inc., a privately held IT professional services organization.

“We see Brett’s expertise and integrity as a huge asset to the company and pivotal to our immediate success,” said Bill Haney, Blu Homes co-founder and president. “He has what it takes to attract the best and brightest, so that we can build a world-class sales team. He is also someone that our customers can have every confidence has their best interest at heart.”

After doubling sales growth over the last few years, Blu Homes will continue to build on its momentum by focusing on strengthening its sales presence to better serve customers in Northern and Southern California, New York, New England, the Mid-Atlantic, and the Pacific Northwest. Plans are also in place to invest in model homes and events in these markets.
