We have been quiet on the blogging front the past couple of months, but in the shop at South Shore Millwork, it’s been everything but!
First, we expanded our executive team. We hired a new vice president of business development and consulting.
Second, we are expanding our architectural millwork shop. We got approval to add 47,000 square feet.
Third, we are expanding our ways of protecting and helping the environment. We are adding a solar array on top of the new building, and a solar array field on the grounds behind it.
Expansion #1: Meet New Hire Wayne Barthe
We recently welcomed Wayne Barthe to the executive management team at South Shore Millwork. He is our new vice president of business development and consulting. And, let me tell you, Wayne wasted no time hitting the ground sprinting! But, before we get into what he’s been up to around here the last couple of months, let’s give you a little background on Wayne.
Having spent the last 20 plus years in various executive positions employed by firms like Deloitte Financial Advisory Services, LexisNexis, Wilmerhale and Fidelity Investments, Wayne brings solid, practical business and strong client relationship experience to his role at South Shore Millwork.
To complement his business experience, Wayne holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Northeastern University, and project management certification from Boston University.
Why was Wayne selected for this position?
According to Owner Jeff Burton, he was looking for a business development leader who would not only further expand South Shore Millwork’s market presence in New England and take us into Connecticut and New York, but he was also looking for someone with excellent business acumen, a solid reputation, and an ability to figure out and understand the needs of sophisticated customers.

What has Wayne been up to the last couple of months?
During the past few months, Wayne has entrenched himself in learning who South Shore Millwork’s current and previous clients are, and making every effort to introduce himself to as many as possible. In addition to client introductions and responding to new requests, Wayne has been working on updating marketing collateral and avenues to promote South Shore Millwork. We are expanding our target markets to include, Connecticut, New York and the Islands. And, Wayne has been involved with managing the company’s Solar Project initiative.
