AS SALES MANAGER

Longtime local renovation expert will lead sales effort as
Cambridge firm expands

CAMBRIDGE, MA [April 14, 2017] Cambridge-based Charlie Allen Renovations has announced the hiring of Philip Bates as sales manager.  In this role, Bates will generate new business and act as the initial point of contact for all inquiries to the award-winning firm, which was founded in 1978.

“Philip Bates loves old houses and he has decades of experience renovating them for modern living. His passion for period architecture and his knowledge of renovation and restoration practices —both hands-on and as a business leader —make him a perfect fit for us,” says Charlie Allen Renovations President Julie Palmer. “We’ve always admired Phil’s talents and abilities, and we’re looking forward to working together.”

Bates is well regarded in the region as the president, director, and co-owner of The Classic Group, Inc., one of the region’s leading custom residential building firms until its closing in 2011.  He also held a leadership role at Marsh and Graham LLC and most recently worked as a consultant/construction manager.  Like Charlie Allen, Bates is a former president of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry’s Eastern Massachusetts Chapter.

“Renovation is like surgery for your home.  When you hire someone to work on your home, experience matters.  Anticipating what challenges are typically encountered during a project can greatly increase the likelihood of success.  The goal is to complete the construction as planned, while keeping the process engaging and positive,” says Bates. “Charlie Allen Renovations is an established leader for home renovations in the greater Boston area.  I have seen and admired the firm’s work throughout my career and I’m excited to join Julie, Charlie, and the rest of the CAR team.”

“I’ve been working in this field since the early 1970s,” notes Charlie Allen, founder and CEO of Charlie Allen Renovations. “I recognized a kindred spirit in Philip many years ago. His addition to the team is good news for our company and our customers alike.”

Charlie Allen Renovations is an award-winning remodeling firm specializing in the seamless integration of modern amenities into period homes while retaining original period details.  Charlie Allen Renovations combines expert tradespeople and professional project management techniques to deliver exceptional customer satisfaction.
