Winston Lindsey of Brewton has been appointed by Gov. Bob Riley to serve as the Retail Representative on the Alabama Manufactured Housing Commission Board. The Alabama Senate Confirmations Committee and the Alabama Senate approved the appointment on Thursday, Feb. 2. Lindsey's appointment is for a five-year term.
In accordance with Alabama Code 24-6-3, the Alabama Housing Institute must submit three nominees to select a retail representative, and Lindsey was one of the three.
The Alabama Manufactured Housing Commission Advisory Board is a nine-member board composed of three consumer representatives, three governmental representatives and three industry representatives. The Commission is the State Agency that provides for a comprehensive manufactured and modular housing program in Alabama.
Lindsey is a partner and vice president with Timberline Homes, Inc., the largest independently owned manufactured housing retail sales company in Alabama. The corporate office is located in Brewton, with a sales center in Brewton, Andalusia, Tuscaloosa, Dothan, Greenville, Monroeville and Demopolis. Dennis Adams, also a partner in Timberline, is a member of the board of the Manufacturing Housing Institute.
Lindsey is a life long resident of Brewton and is married to Joan Logan Lindsey. They have two daughters, Kimberly (John) Pettis and Heather Jennings, both of Brewton. They also have two grandsons, Stokes Jennings, 5, and Bracken Pettis, 18 months.
Lindsey is an active member of First Baptist Church of Brewton and is a member of the Brewton Kiwanis Club. He is a graduate of W.S. Neal High School and attended Jefferson Davis Community College.
When he's not working and traveling between Timberline's eight locations, Lindsey can be found spending time with his family and specifically his two favorite boys, Stokes and Bracken. He recently went hunting with Stokes and watched proudly as he harvested his first deer at age five.
