Conway Richmond Ltd. has been part of building Richmond since 1958, when Gene Greczmiel turned to house building after a successful career as a dairy farmer. He formed E.H. Greczmiel Construction and Conway Richmond Estates, which in 1983 became Conway Richmond Ltd.
Conway is a long standing pillar of community excellence. The Richmond Chamber of Commerce was honoured to induct Greczmiel and Conway Richmond Ltd. into the Business Excellence Awards Hall of Fame.
Greczmiel first built Laurelwood, where he lived with his wife and two daughters. He then developed Maple Lane, Westwind, and Terra Nova. His subdivisons are known for their beauty, quality, and distinctive characters.
The company grew to include commercial real estate and now owns several business and commercial centres in Richmond, including Blundell Centre – Conway Richmond’s showpiece.
Recently renovated and busier than ever, Blundell Centre is a preferred shopping destination for Richmond residents.
Greczmiel was born and raised in Richmond; he and his family continue to make their home here. As president of Conway Richmond, he has seen huge changes in the community and the business climate. He said he is very pleased with how the city is evolving, with its beauty, and strong sense of community. He added that he’s proud of his part in Richmond’s growth and its history. Greczmiel is also very happy to be part of local philanthropic efforts to improve the lives of everyone who lives here, giving generously to organizations such as the Richmond Hospital Foundation, Richmond Food Bank, Richmond Christmas Fund, the City of Richmond’s Working Poor Fund, Richmond Salvation Army, and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
