High school sweethearts, Keith took a job as an apprentice union carpenter before spending a year in Vietnam. The couple married in 1968 and shortly after moved to the North Bay in search of affordable housing.

As CEO, Keith’s focus was on the homebuilding side, while Brenda, as Executive Vice President and Director of Marketing and Product Design, is renowned for her marketing passion and creativity and has been the driving force in building the company’s much-respected brand.

Entrepreneurs at heart, Keith and Brenda have created and will co-chair the Christopherson Homes Board of Directors, an ideal position from which to effectively contribute to the company and pave the way for its continued growth and development.
