Bob Leach, President

Over 35 years ago, Bob Leach had a vision to offer incredible value in new homes and communities throughout Stark County. After graduating from Ohio State University and working at Republic Engineered Steel, he founded Hawthorne Builders, and never looked back.

Over the past 35 years, Bob has built Regal Construction into a leader in the Stark County housing market. He has built over 1,000 homes – everything from homes under $100,000 to fully custom, high-end homes well over $1 million. He has been an active developer of local communities, also, developing over 1,200 lots in his career. Bob served as president of the Stark County BIA in 1979.

Bob and his wife Nancy have also contributed significantly to the local community over the years.  From his early days in the Canton Jaycee’s and Junior League, through more recent contributions to Leadership Stark County, United Way, and the Stark County Park District, community improvement has always been an important value at Regal.

Bob and Nancy reside in Jackson Township.  Contact Bob by email.

Andy Leach, Vice President

Andy grew up within the family home building business, working summers through high school and college sweeping out houses, mowing lawns, and even learning the electrical trade to wire houses.  However, he followed a different path into the business, graduating with a degree in Accounting, Summa Cum Laude, from Ohio State. After working for Ernst & Young and earning his CPA, he joined the family business and has been an active home builder for 15 years.

Andy has continued the family tradition of contributing to the community.  He has been active on the Building Industry Association of Stark County Board from 1998 through 2009, serving as president in 2005.  He has also served on the boards, and led as president of the board, of Project REBUILD, Inc., and the Friends of Stark Parks.

Andy and his wife Melissa reside in Jackson Township with their daughter Morgan.  Contact Andy by email.

residential and commercial projects. Beginning as a receptionist, Lisa learned each facet of the building
process and acquired and honed customer service and project management skills along the way. In
explaining her long tenure with the same company, Lisa responds, “I really enjoy working one on one
with clients to ensure that we not only meet but exceed their expectations during and after the building
process. Coming to work each day is still a joy!”
