As co-owner and leader of our design group, Bruce is focused on making sure that every client has an exceptional experience with Lee Kimball.
“Listening and learning from our clients is probably the most important thing I do. From our first conversation, I work to make sure that every aspect of our creative process is collaborative and enjoyable, and that has a lot to do with how well a project turns out.”
Bruce not only brings more than 25 years experience to every job, he cites the legacy of his grandfather, Leon Kimball Johnson, as a constant inspiration.
Today Bruce is also involved in developing Lee Kimball Home Services and Lee Kimball Interiors. In addition he devotes time to the David K. Johnson Foundation, supporting individuals and families dealing with the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease.
As co-owner of Lee Kimball, Gregg leads our construction team and is responsible for the entire build process. Once a design is approved and specified, his team makes sure that all materials and schedules are in place to create beautiful spaces, while keeping each job on schedule and on budget.
Gregg brings more than 25 years of creative problem solving, construction expertise, and managerial skill to every Lee Kimball project. He particularly enjoys meeting with clients throughout the build process.
“Our weekly status updates ensure transparency, encourage collaboration, and make the whole process more exciting for our clients.”
Along with his brother Bruce, Gregg is deeply involved in the David K. Johnson Foundation. He is also passionate about his involvement in the Reading Rotary Club.
As our principal designer, Rita works closely with Bruce to create spaces that transform homes. After an initial design consultation, Rita and her team of consulting designers develop a range of ideas for each client.
“The whole process of my job brings me joy. It starts with working with people to make their spaces feel like home and sometimes advising them to step out of their comfort zone.”
Once a design direction is chosen, Rita and her team draft a final plan, specifying the details of each project before it moves into the construction phase.
In additional to her design and supervisory role at Lee Kimball, Rita also has a passion for teaching. She is currently on the faculty of the Boston Architectural College.

“My goal is to ensure that you have a great experience with Lee Kimball–whether we are changing a light bulb or working on your entire home.”
Brian works closely with Gregg to manage the entire construction process and facilitate transparent communication between clients and everyone on the Lee Kimball team.
As our lead estimator he plays a critical role in accurately predicting the cost of every element in a project. Brian is also focused on procurement, making sure that everything is ordered and available when needed on site. His attention to the logistics of every job not only ensures success, it makes the entire design build process more enjoyable for our clients.
“I think the greatest satisfaction I receive is seeing genuine happiness and excitement in the client’s eyes as we progress through a project.”
Cindy tracks the progress of each Lee Kimball project, including the status of all orders and payments. Because the design build process leaves nothing to chance, her careful monitoring and thorough reports are critical to the success of every job.
Beyond the numbers, Cindy’s excellent working relationships with clients, vendors, and the entire Lee Kimball teams keeps everything running smoothly.
“As the company expands I am enjoying working with new people who quickly become friends and then like family.”

In her role as manager of the newly launched division of Lee Kimball Interiors, Erica works with clients to enhance the style and function of their home. Whether it is a refresh of a home that has been lived in for years or reimagining a collection of rooms to suit the tastes of a new homeowner, Erica loves to collaborate with clients and the design team to deliver and implement custom designs that folks will love for years to come.

Erica’s fun and laid-back approach to her job has been influenced by her own personal experience in designing, renovating, and building homes for herself and her family.
