Our Staff

Ben Heinsohn, President

Heinsohn, an educator by training, entered the window business in 2006 as the Operations Manager for Salem Millwork, a specialty window and door company that closed in 2008. As a former teacher and coach, he values the importance of education and building partnerships within the industry and certainly with each new customer. The individual attention he gave to each student is the same approach he uses with each client. Heinsohn has worked with commercial contractors, residential custom home builders and remodelers as well as directly with homeowners. He has lived in Winston-Salem for 15 years, is married to a native North Carolinian, and has two young children. Heinsohn is active with Knollwood Baptist Church where he serves as a deacon and sings in the choir. When not working, he can be found in the kitchen cooking, playing in the yard with his kids or staring longingly at the bicycle he used to ride before he had kids.
