He brings notable achievements within the manufactured housing industry from growing and managing multi-state businesses operations, personally achieving multi-million dollar monthly revenues, and being recognized for leading sales and service teams to deliver growth, cost controls and always putting the customer first.
With his many leadership challenges, business ownership and achievements with Foster Enterprises, LLC, Manufactured Housing Enterprises/Park Lane Solutions, Clayton Homes, and Oakwood Homes Greensboro Luke brings 30+ years in the industry. Interrupted only by his passion for small business and North Carolina Theatre, he leads people and continues to be a major supporter and strategic consultant to that creative enterprise, prized by all North Carolinians. In his manufactured housing business he continues to build many connections with other vendors and providers that service the business. These relationships include many key companies in Construction, Finance, Insurance and Property Risk Management, Marketing and Public Relations. In 2016 the Speaker of the House in North Carolina appointed Mr. Foster to his three year term to the North Carolina Manufactured Housing Board, helping the organization continue to improve and be committed to the residents of the community and, most importantly, North Carolina.
His successes in Retail and Community Sales as well as community management have contributed to best practices that increase the productivity of staff and the satisfaction of clients and consumers. As such he has made valuable use of a diverse background in consumer facing and business facing commerce. Competition is a driving force held and sharpened from his team athletics and soccer coaching experiences. That competitive aspect of his experience led to successful business oriented and development ventures almost 30 years and kept skills development at the fore. A team sports mindset combines his skills from athletics to theatre to manufactured homes, a unique combination of passions that all serve each other.
His 30+ year successful career comes from every aspect of the Manufactured Housing experience. His contributions to the Industry has been both at the Board level as well as being instrumental in developing the skills of practitioners through developing the Accreditation system and delivering training to meet those accreditations.
