Growth from Within

At Conifer, we believe in promoting from within. We focus on hiring the best and brightest people who are dedicated to being good neighbors, building opportunities and achieving dreams. It is with great honor that we announce the promotions of two committed employees!

Cheryl Stulpin has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Conifer Realty. In this role, she will lead all real estate development operations for New York and Pennsylvania. Cheryl worked with Conifer several years prior and rejoined us in 2013 after a very successful career with the Winn Companies. She is highly regarded in the affordable housing industry for her knowledge, expertise and integrity.

“It gives me great pleasure to have Cheryl back as part of the Conifer organization, and know that the Rochester development team will excel under her leadership,” expressed Timothy Fournier, President and CEO of Conifer.

Mark Benotti has been promoted to Vice President of Human Resources and Risk Management. In his new role, he will assume responsibility for the Human Resources group, in addition to his already existing portfolio, overseeing the Risk Management, Learning and Information Technology Departments. Mark offers extensive risk management and operational experience.

“Our employees are the foundation to our success, and with people like Cheryl Stulpin and Mark Benotti joining our Senior Leadership team, we will strengthen our commitment of strong leadership to our employees and expand our reach to provide state-of-the-art affordable apartment homes,” said Thomas Johnson, Executive Vice President and CFO of Conifer.
