Nation’s Leading Virtual Manufactured Homes Dealer Appoints New CFO, VP of Engineering and VP of Marketing to Meet the Needs of a Booming Business

SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Braustin Housesthe nation’s first virtual prefab home dealer, is expanding its management team with three new positions that will provide the financial, engineering and marketing expertise needed to expand offerings to help more potential homeowners find and finance affordable housing in Texas.

“The largest generation of first-time home buyers we’ve ever seen are seeing a shortage of homes available for $250,000 and under,” said Braustin Homes CEO Alberto Pina. “As the availability of traditional housing slows, the manufactured home industry is exploding. We must continue to grow with the industry to provide easier access to beautiful new homes through our virtual dealerships and technology options streamlined finance.”

Edward Stepanow, a finance executive with over 20 years of experience working with high-growth companies and other market leaders, has joined the Braustin Homes team as Chief Financial Officer to help navigate the launch of a new financial product and manage the company’s anticipated growth.

Stepanow has significant financial leadership experience in the financial services and construction industries. Most recently, he served as Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer of MediciNova, a NASDAQ-listed California biopharmaceutical company. During his career, he has also held leadership positions for Guido Companies, Millennium Packaging, Bridgepoint Education, Inc. (NYSE: BPI), The CIT Group (NYSE: CIT), ITT Capital Group (NYSE: ITT) and Coast Federal Bank.

“Braustin Homes is disrupting an industry that is still run the old fashioned way, with faxes, face-to-face meetings and inflated prices,” says Stepanow. “I look forward to working with this highly motivated team who are using technology to modernize the manufactured home buying experience and make things faster, cheaper and more convenient.”

Jon Roberts, a 20-year software industry veteran, joined Braustin as vice president of engineering. Roberts has extensive experience working in fintech, restaurants, retail verticals, and other industries, with a focus on systems, scaling, and team building . He has held leadership positions with the United Services Automobile Association (USAA); Olo, a leading SaaS platform for restaurants; and Virtustream, an enterprise-class Dell Technologies company.

Nick Herrera has joined Braustin Homes as Vice President of Marketing. Previously, he was recognized as the #1 Senior Marketing Consultant at the prestigious Marketing 360 agency, where he was recognized for his ability to grow businesses and build teams. He has also served as chief marketing officer for a national film and acting production studio, chief operating officer for a large commercial concierge company, and director of split marketing who developed strategies for NFL athletes, UFC champions and SAG actors.

Stepanow, Roberts and Herrera will contribute to a leadership team led by CEO Alberto Pina and COO Jason Pina, who has more than 75 years of experience building and growing market-leading organizations.

They are supported by a team of technology leaders who serve on Braustin’s Board of Directors: Mike Troy, General Partner, Geekdom Fund and Pat Condon, Co-Founder of Rackspace Technology. Other advisers and investors include Graham Weston, co-founder of Rackspace, and Pat Mathews, co-founder and CEO of Webmail and co-founder and general partner of Active Capital.

Brothers Alberto and Jason Pina established Braustin Homes in 2017 with the goal of merging manufactured homes with a more accessible 21st century shopping experience. In five years, they’ve built a middle-market business that has created 36 jobs on its way to market leadership and helped 559 families navigate the process of buying an affordable home.

“Braustin’s business model centralizes and simplifies all the complexity of the manufactured home industry,” said Pat Condon, co-founder of Rackspace, who sits on Braustin’s board of directors. “They are always looking to the future to provide products and services that reach an underserved population trying to compete in a rapidly changing housing market.”

Braustin Homes will launch a financial technology (fintech) tool to speed up and streamline the lending process for new land construction later this quarter.
