John F. Chase, owner & CEO of Chase Custom Homes & Finance in Westbrook, was recognized by the Sebago Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce as Entrepreneur of the Year. John accepted the award, surrounded by colleagues and members of the local business community, at the chamber’s Annual Meeting on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at Camp Sunshine in Casco, Maine. The award is in recognition of recent projects and development in the greater Windham and Sebago Lakes Region area. Since establishing Chase Custom Homes in 1986, John has paved the way for land, residential and light commercial development.
His most notable recent projects include the purchase of a 38-acre parcel on Highland Lake for a future residential community and the new Auto Shine Car Wash in Windham. The company is also re-purposing two high visibility commercial properties in Windham and Gray, which will be new child care centers. John continues to find unique ways to rehabilitate properties and develop communities, bringing jobs and needed services to the area. Thank you to the Sebago Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce for this significant honor!
