Congratulations Kathy on 20 years at Branthaven!

Branthaven Homes is delighted to announce a milestone achievement for Kathy Funke. On May 2, Kathy celebrated 20 years of committed service with Branthaven Homes. Starting with Branthaven as an accountant in 1994, Kathy quickly proved to be a ‘Jill of all trades’, going far beyond her duties ‘managing the books’. Back then, Branthaven’s head office was located in a cozy cottage off of the Bruce Trail in Waterdown, where only a handful of employees worked in the head office! She was a valuable asset during the company’s early years, often serving the roles as office manager, secretary, and pitching in wherever else she could help.

As Branthaven has grown, so has Kathy. Her role of accountant evolved into Sales Administration, where her strength in the details, ethics, and integrity, as well as her interest in real estate law could be applied. Have a question about contracts, maintenance fees, closing dates, and organization skills? She’s your go-to gal! Still, Kathy continues to be the ‘Jill of all trades’ she was 20 years ago, even taking on the unofficial role as ‘office mom’. Her wealth of knowledge about Branthaven is admirable, and her willingness to educate others about ‘all things Branthaven’ is appreciated in the office and at Site Openings.  As a Branthaven homeowner herself, she is a true advocate of the brand, and Branthaven is honoured to have such a dedicated and fun-loving staff member as Kathy.

Please join us in congratulating Kathy Funke on this great career accomplishment.
