Dan Greenspun is the Owner and President of Penn Construction & Design. Dan’s love of working with his hands was fostered under the caring guidance of his grandfather, who taught Dan how to fix and repair things around his aging home. Dan’s emotional connection to the industry started right there at the foot of his grandfather’s workbench, because for Dan, working on homes reminds him of his own family.
Dan’s entrepreneurial spirit was instilled by his father. When he was 12 years old, Dan’s father sent him to the top of Eagle Road in Havertown to offer to sweep storefronts for $.50 a sidewalk. Soon, Dan’s strong work ethic (and competitive rates) led to a monopoly of the sidewalk sweeping business in town and an entrepreneur was born.
As he grew older, Dan excelled in many woodshop classes at Haverford High School, and it was there that he developed the foundation of his construction skill-set. After graduating from Haverford, Dan went to Virginia Wesleyan College where he earned a Bachelors Degree. Dan was a competitive athlete at both Haverford, & Virginia Wesleyan, where he played soccer and lacrosse.
After college, Dan moved back to his parents’ home while they were beginning to add a large addition. Needing a job, Dan asked the contractor if he could work on the project, and was hired. During this project, Dan saw how wood, nails, hard work and design, all came together to turn his parents’ house into their dream home. He will never forget what the transformation felt like for them. Dan created Penn Construction & Design to give his clients the same exhilarating experience of turning their house into their dream home.
Dan has over 15 years of experience in construction and design, and is also a licensed realtor. He specializes in bathroom and kitchen renovations, as well as, complete home remodels, and large home additions. Dan has built his business with his clients’ needs at the forefront. He completes his work on time, on budget, & maintains a clean construction site with open communications at all times.
In addition to running Penn Construction & Design, Dan is an Ironman and avid triathlete. He is the past Head Coach of the Haverford High School Varsity Boy’s Lacrosse Team, and past Assistant Coach for the Rosemont College Men’s Lacrosse Team.
