Oak Terrace Resort & Spa is pleased to announce the appointment of Brad Simpson as General Manager succeeding General Manager Katie Ohmes. His move from Marketing Director comes after a year at the Resort driving results and elevating guest experiences. He brings over 20 years of business management and marketing experience which places him in an excellent position to take on this new challenging role.
“We are thrilled to announce Brad as General Manager” said Katie Ohmes. “His creativity, vision and extensive leadership experience are sure to enhance the already-exceptional quality of service and memorable experiences we offer to our Guests, Members and Property Owners of Oak Terrace.”
Simpson grew up in Mt. Zion, IL where he currently resides with his wife Kerri. They are the proud parents of two children and four beautiful granddaughters. “I look forward to working hand-in-hand with our devoted team of Department Managers as we begin a bright new chapter in the Oak Terrace Resort story,” said Simpson. “I am truly humbled and honored for the opportunity to work with such a highly respected organization.”
The appointment will allow Katie Ohmes, current General Manger, time to focus on the Real Estate development and growth to our ever popular Resort community. In addition to driving Resort Real Estate sales, Ohmes will promote the development’s newest opportunity with Oak Terrace Resort Home Builders. She is a licensed Managing Real Estate Broker, and has worked in real estate sales for more than 15 years.
“Creating an inspiring community that allows people to connect is what excites me, and I love all the amenities that we have to offer,” Ohmes said. “I’m thrilled to lead our development vision and am excited to see what this next chapter brings.”
Ohmes and her husband, Scott resides at the Resort along with their 4 young sons. “I grew up here, my kids are growing up here… our family’s roots here are deep. What my Grandparents started here in the 1960’s is ever evolving into the vacation and retirement community it was designed to be. I am so very proud to be such an intricate part of the continued development of my family’s Resort.”
“In addition, I look forward to working alongside the talented professionals at Amwood Custom Homes and to draw on my experience as a value creator to provide innovative and thoughtful experiences for current and potential owners,” said Ohmes. Amwood Custom Homes is one of the Midwest’s premier panelized custom home builders. Since 1959, the family-owned company has established a reputation for high quality construction and custom home design. Over the past forty years, Amwood Homes has established a reputation for expert construction, quality craftsmanship, and personalized customer service.
We wanted to offer an alternative to the traditional way of building a home. Builders and homebuyers today have recognized that building a new home “stick by stick” is often not the most efficient building method. Increasingly, homes are being built using a “panelized building system” – a construction technique that utilizes advanced technology, quality materials, and a controlled work environment – to build wall panels and other components to construct an energy-efficient and durable home in less time.
Today’s panelized home building systems retain the best aspects of “stick” frame construction. They combine time-tested building methods with modern technology to deliver customizable, energy efficient, beautiful new homes.
“I’ve played a key role in the development of Oak Terrace resort throughout my career with much success in the highly competitive real estate and resort industry. I look forward to contributing to the development of this incredible location, and playing a role in the continued growth of this residential community.” – Ohmes
