Wyer named Connor Mill-Built Homes CEO
MIDDLEBURY — Connor Mill-Built Homes LLC (CMBH) recently announced the hiring of Skip Wyer as its chief executive officer. Wyer, a 1983 Middlebury College graduate, will take on the day-to-day leadership of the company and will join CMBH’s board of managers.
“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to work alongside Skip as we build and grow Connor Mill-Built Homes,” said Mike Connor, founder of Connor Mill-Built Homes. “Skip is a seasoned leader with significant financial and operating experience with start-ups and growth stage businesses. We are lucky to have him as CEO during the next phase of our growth.”
Wyer brings with him years of experience investing in, and advising, fast-growing businesses in the real estate, construction, agriculture and technology sectors. He’s a partner in Vermont Works Management Company, a Burlington-based, social-impact investment firm that supports job growth and job creation in Vermont.
“I am thrilled to join Mike Connor and the rest of the team at CMBH,” said Wyer. “The company is driven by its exceptional design expertise and has earned a reputation for beautiful homes of the highest quality. As a pioneer in the development of off-site or ‘mill-built’ technologies, we believe the company to be well-positioned to benefit from the growing national trend toward off-site construction.”
Going forward, Mike Connor will focus his efforts on building strategic relationships with homebuilders, residential developers and design partners such as the Winterthur Museum. He’ll also chair CMBH’s Design Review Committee.
In 1992, Mike Connor established Connor Homes, which specialized in colonial reproduction “kit” homes. The company moved into the 119,000-square-foot former home of Standard Register in 2007 in response to growing demand for its products. He sold most of his interest in the company in 2012, and in early 2017 the new owner laid off all 65 of the company’s employees.
Later that year, Mike Connor got together financing to re-establish the business under the new name, Connor Mill-Built Homes.
CMBH is made up of designers and builders who work out of the company’s mill shop in Middlebury’s industrial park. The company specializes in classic American architecture and off-site or “mill-built” construction methods.
CMBH homes are built by master craftsmen in a controlled environment and are shipped to home sites nationally.
