Sarah Russ joins Whayland as business development manager

August 5, 2019

The Whayland Company, with headquarters in Laurel and clients throughout Sussex County and the Eastern Shore of Maryland, announced the addition of Business Development Manager Sarah Russ to its southern Delaware management team.

Russ joined the team in June and is responsible for building the Whayland brand throughout the Delmarva region.

“I’ve always been a social person, and I love talking with and meeting new people,” said Russ, who lives in the Millsboro area with her husband and five children. “You could say it’s a bit of a passion for me, so why not apply that to a career working for a company that I truly believe in?”

Russ is a graduate of Cape Henlopen High School and a longtime Delaware resident. She knows the area well and is familiar with the unique business climate in southern Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore, where Whayland’s client base is centered.

Her responsibilities include meeting with owners and developers in both Delaware and Maryland, and pitching the Whayland Company in general, as well as niche areas that the company has become known for in recent years. This includes residential clubhouse builds, which have become a growing part of the company’s business.

Steve Hentschel, owner and president of Whayland, said, “I take a great deal of pride in Whayland’s hard-earned reputation in the community, and Sarah is here to build on that moving forward.”
