Chris Bergh

Co-Owner, Principal

– Pro Builder’s Forty Under 40 Class of 2020 –

Chris Bergh reinforces the Pohlig legacy and brand with a long view to the future and a strong passion for building custom homes. The consummate communicator, Chris fosters and develops relationships between clients, design professionals, and trade contractors from the beginning of a project, throughout implementation, and long after a project is completed. A believer in innovation, Chris finesses the construction systems, financial reporting, and client management processes that are at the heart of the company’s success.

Berwyn, Pennsylvania born and raised — with a tradition of engineers and architects in the family — Chris has worked with Pohlig since he was a sophomore in college when he interned as a field laborer during the summer. Originally planning to pursue a degree in industrial design at The Ohio State University, he changed his major to Construction Systems Management and was hired to the Estimating & Project Management team after his 2005 graduation. Invested in the company since day one, Chris manages Pohlig’s custom home portfolio and values getting to know clients and the incredible houses he’s had a hand in creating for them. He is equally committed to forging a work/life balance for the Pohlig team. An inveterate student of the construction and design industry, Chris is an active member of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art.

Chris is a Philly sports fan, loves golf, and spends time with his wife, son, and their golden mix Reggie.

Wayne Leighton

Co-Owner, Principal

Wayne comes from a large extended family with historic roots on the Main Line. Since 1994, he has been instrumental in expanding Pohlig’s reputation as one of the area’s premier custom home builders while simultaneously creating a workplace that attracts and retains the talented people that comprise the Pohlig team. 

A graduate of Villanova University with a BSCE in Civil Engineering, Wayne also holds an MBA in Finance from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Prior to Pohlig, he was a bridge design engineer who matriculated into real estate consulting and development after grad school. At Pohlig, Wayne has merged his technical background with his business experience to acquire and develop the Company’s many award-winning residential communities. 

Deeply concerned about how Main Line townships grow and evolve, Wayne brings a unique perspective on the development of the high-end residential ground. He is committed to producing communities that benefit the homeowners as well as the towns where they are located. Wayne has served on the Radnor Township Planning Commission, the Shade Tree Commission, and the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee and Implementation Committees. 

A father of four, Wayne enjoys spending time with his family and grooming his kids to follow in his footsteps. His son, Chris, has already joined Pohlig to Wayne’s delight. When not working, Wayne can be spotted on a basketball court now and then.
