Savannah, GA (July 25, 2012) - After an extensive search by Company management and its Board of Directors, The Landings Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Lonnie Kinlaw, a nationally-recognized sales leader, to the position of Director of Sales.

The Landings Company, the real estate and marketing arm of The Landings on Skidaway Island, has experienced a significant increase in sales this year (higher than the FULL YEAR totals of 2008, 2009 or 2010). Mr. Kinlaw will work with Landings Company agents and with president, Bill Houghton on programs to make The Landings Company even more effective.

Mr. Kinlaw has had successful tenures at a number of high profile developments such as St. James Plantation, Palmetto Creek & Waterford of the Carolinas, all in North Carolina. Lonnie also held positions at Mount Vintage Plantation, Centex Homes, Woodside Development and Tidewater Golf Club & Plantation in South Carolina. He has recruited and trained top flight sales representatives, created sales & marketing programs, and molded teams into the very best in the southeast resulting in an extraordinary number of on-site property tours, sales, and millions of dollars in closed sales volume. He is also a member of the National Association of Retirement Communities.

“Bringing in a leader with a track record like Lonnie’s illustrates the commitment of The Landings Company to bring buyers to this community,” states Bill Houghton, President of The Landings Company. “In total, our Company agents have over 360 years of on-site experience representing our community to potential buyers, and Lonnie will draw from that success and his own expertise to coach and lead our newer – and future – real estate agents.”
