Originally from Bryn Mawr, Wayne Leighton comes from a large extended family with historic roots in the area. With Pohlig since 1998, he has been instrumental in the valuation and appraisal of residential subdivisions for some of the area’s largest lenders and the acquisition and development of award-winning residential projects in the Main Line. He also manages the day-to-day operations of the company, including planning, approvals, permitting, and marketing. Currently, Wayne is working towards a new wave of smaller, single-family developments with a focus on highly custom-designed homes by renowned architects in the region.
Wayne is a graduate of Villanova University with a BSCE in Civil Engineering and holds an MBA in Finance from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His background and his familiarity with Main Line area townships bring a unique perspective on the development of high-end residential ground. Deeply concerned about how townships grow and evolve, Wayne is invested in producing communities that benefit the homeowners as well as the towns where they are located. He has served on the Radnor Township Planning Commission, the Shade Tree Commission, and Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee and Implementation Committees.
A good-natured father of four, Wayne enjoys spending time with his family, grooming his kids to follow in his footsteps, and can be spotted on a basketball court now and then.
