Harvey Ryan, is the CEO of Turnstone Holdings the parent company of Turnstone Custom Homes and Stratus Commercial Contractors.  A Sussex County resident since age 10, Harvey began working in construction during high school. After majoring in Pre-Hospital Management at Youngstown State University, Harvey served as a Sussex County paramedic.  It is not an exaggeration to say that if you have lived here for a while you probably know someone that he has helped. Seeking a change from dealing with life-or-death situations on a daily basis, Harvey returned to his first love – construction. In 2004 he founded Turnstone Builders.

"Dave, Erin and I have always had the ability to capitalize on our respective strengths. It's easy because we share the same values – honesty, respect and genuinely caring about what we do. We collaborate to run the company and our projects, and think our customers get a better result because of the influence each of us has on Turnstone."  


Erin Bagnatori

Erin Bagnatori is the Vice President of Operations and a co-owner of the Company.  

Erin has spent his entire working life in construction.  His interest and passion for job sites began as a boy, while spending summer breaks on construction sites with his father. Erin continued working in new construction during his high school breaks.

After attending the University of Delaware, he spent most of the 1990’s supervising commercial construction projects in Wilmington, DE.  Erin moved to Rehoboth Beach in 2001, following the housing boom, and has been involved in the growth of the area ever since. 

Erin enjoys meeting the challenges of the fast-changing, custom home market.  He also has extensive experience managing commercial construction projects including renovations of restaurants and professional offices throughout the state. Bagnatori has also managed the construction of large projects including a 60,000-square-foot medical facility and a large financial institution headquarters.

 

"I have found my home at Turnstone - this is where I belong.  Harvey and Dave are the kind of people that you just know you can trust to do the right thing, even when the chips are down. I genuinely love my work, and take pride in doing whatever is required to satisfy even the most demanding clients."
