It’s Wallick’s pleasure to announce that John Leonard has taken leadership of the company’s development team, in addition to our construction team. Since 2016, John has successfully led Wallick Construction, and under his guidance, the company has seen project after project completed on-time and on-budget. Now, John will lead both business units and oversee projects from concept through construction completion.
Additionally, Wallick has promoted Alexis Dunfee and Joe Hall to Vice President, Development as well as Tyler Ponder and Michael DiCarlantonio to Development Manager.
On Tuesday, the Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority (Cincinnati MHA) Board approved Wallick Communities as one of six preferred developers that the organization will partner with over the next couple years to help reposition the existing public housing stock in its portfolio. Wallick was one of eleven firms that responded to the Request for Proposal. Upon completion of the submittal evaluation and interview process, Wallick received a second position ranking with a score of 94.2 out of a possible 115. Wallick’s score was less than two points below Michaels Development Company, which placed first with 95.4. Other firms to make the list were:

Through this partnership opportunity, Wallick could be selected to develop one or more projects with Cincinnati MHA. Congratulations to those who made this partnership possible.
