September 15, 2021 – The Board of Directors of The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) today announced that Dennis Gehman, President of the NARI Board of Directors, is taking a medical leave from the volunteer leadership position.
“Beginning a leave of absence during my term as president was a difficult decision to make, but it is the right decision for my family, for me and for NARI, a professional organization that has benefited me throughout my career,” Dennis said. He founded Gehman Design Remodeling, which has provided home addition and remodeling services in Harleysville, Pa., since 1990. “I look forward to the prospect of returning to a leadership position on the NARI board in the future,” he added.
NARI President-Elect Chris Egner has now assumed the duties of board president upon the conclusion of the last regularly scheduled meeting of the board in September. Chris was previously president of NARI Milwaukee, NARI’s largest chapter.
Dennis adds that, “Chris will be an outstanding leader and has my complete confidence. His experience brings together a national perspective about current issues in our profession and his understanding of the important role of local chapters. He is a successful businessperson who knows firsthand the benefits of NARI for remodelers everywhere.”
