Like many entrepreneurs, founder Joe Berry started small: driving a station wagon full of used skis to Vermont to rent to his classmates at UVM. When he moved to Boston in 1971, he and his friends pooled their savings and converted a triple-decker home in Cambridge into 3 condominiums, making him among the earliest modern condo developers in the country.
Joe quickly fell in love with the Mt. Washington Valley. In the late 1970s, he was the first to build a hotel-condominium in the state of New Hampshire and was integral to the drafting of the NH state condominium laws.
When the iconic Eastern Slope Inn of North Conway went up for sale in 1980, Joe saw an opportunity to restore a key piece of the White Mountains that had been shuttered for years. Today the Inn and its many additions anchor the bustling tourist district that is North Conway Village.
Joe now provides full-time employment to over 100 people, many of which have worked for our company for decades. A hallmark of the Berry Companies is the stability provided to employees for over 40 years: full-time year round work with exceptional benefits, and no seasonal layoffs or required reduction of work hours.
From the very beginning, Joe Berry has focused on the revitalization of the community and supporting organizations that were helping the community.
Today, this family-run business continues to build on this legacy while also looking for future growth. The company’s long-term success has been in part due to Joe’s ability to find great people from every level.
