Robert Wurster

Vice President of Finance

Bob Wurster first met Tom Maloney in 1991 when working for his company as an accountant. Tom really impressed him as a unique, very hands-on company President whose passion for building is always evident. In 1995 Signature Homes by J.T. Maloney, Inc. was launched and it was just Tom and Bob building the business. As the housing market improved from the late 90’s into 2000, they grew as a company. As the market went through the down years starting in 2008, they became leaner. But through it all, the one thing that has never changed is their care for the homeowners. Their passion for building every homeowner a great home is in the company culture. Today, when they meet with prospective home buyers, it is easy for them to know we are being provided with a great home at a great value. After all of these years working with their contractors and thoroughly understanding the “numbers” side of the equation, they are confident that JT Maloney Signature Homes is the best home builder in the Lehigh Valley.
