Ron Froehlich, Jr., President
Ron Froehlich, Jr. comes from a family dedicated to improving the land. The Froehlich history is rooted in the very land Ron is now developing. Ron himself has been in the construction industry since 1984 and founded Froehlich Construction Company in 1987. Initially, Froehlich established himself as a builder/developer of luxury custom and semi-custom homes and properties, with the founding of Froehlich Signature Homes, and communities such as Masterpiece Parke and Masterpiece Estates.
