After diving into each department over the course of the next several months, making well thought out recommendations for evolutionary change that would set the tone for the next phase of explosive growth, Corey was named Power’s Chief Marketing Officer in 2006. At this time, he became responsible for the company’s burgeoning inbound and outbound sales and marketing departments.

This led to a significant increase in company earnings and employee count, as well as the company’s first nationwide expansion plan. By 2011, Corey assumed his current position as Chief Executive Officer where he continues to lead Power toward its short-term goals including continued national expansion and $1 billion in sales. Still early in his career, he commands immense respect from each employee by continuously leading through education and action, not afraid to set a creative and strategic vision for this progressive and future-focused company.

Jeff Kaliner | Founding Partner
As founding partner of Power Home Remodeling Group, Jeff Kaliner is responsible to oversee and provide direction for the organization’s strategic marketing, regional expansion and culture development platforms. Post college and a year into pharmaceutical sales, Jeff co-founded Power Home Remodeling Group with his first cousin, Adam Kaliner in 1992. Read more…
Jeff along with Adam had a vision for how a small home remodeling company could thrive. Treat homeowners with respect and always be on time. Sell products you would want in your own home. Focus on making homes more energy efficient (before that concept was popular). Only hire employees that can help Power realize this vision – while also being the kind of people you would want to spend time with outside of work. 22 years later, Power has become all of these things and more thanks to this vision statement handwritten in Jeff’s apartment two decades ago.
Under Jeff’s leadership, the company has grown to become the third largest exterior home remodeling company in the country with more than 1,350 employees and $245 million in sales. Jeff has been a driving force in the development of the company’s unique “people first” culture and the motto that every employee plays a significant role in the company’s success. He also strongly believes that “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”, and has created a culture who shares his philosophy.
Jeff has also been instrumental in the company’s initial advertising and brand management programs and has served as the “face” of the company in its past popular television and radio ads.
Jeff is a member of the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce. He has also been an active philanthropist and fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Habitat for Humanity and YouthBuild USA. Closest to Jeff’s heart is Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. He is board member and Power’s most vocal leader for the foundation – so much so that Power is now one of Alex’s largest corporate sponsors, donating more than $350,000 toward fighting pediatric cancer since the philanthropic partnership began in 2011.
Jeff holds a bachelor degree in management at the Freeman School of Business at Tulane University in New Orleans. Jeff currently resides in Villanova, PA with his wife, Mara and their three children, Ryan, Jordan and Olivia (Livi).
