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.
