Meet Team Alair


Walter Strong

Regional Partner

As a third-generation builder, Walter is intimately acquainted with the industry. Walter has always strived to make his process as “user-friendly” and joyful as possible. When Walter joined Alair, tools and support for perfecting his vision became closer than ever. Optimistic and visionary, Walter leads our team with humility and enthusiasm. As a regional partner, Walter is set to develop the Southeast Georgia region with a network of Alair offices, where he can lend his strategic thinking, empowerment and personal development skills to other business owners.

In his personal life he is supported by his wife and three daughters. You may also see Walter serving and returning on the tennis court, a lifelong passion of his. Walter always has a podcast or book recommendation for you, so keep your pen handy to write it down!

Cal Rowles

General Manager / Project Manager

Looking for someone with a keen eye for detail, over 25 years of experience, and a passion for client relationships?  Look no further than Cal Rowles. The daily challenges and on-your-feet problem solving give Cal energy and excitement. He loves providing top notch service and lending his expertise to our clients and our team as our general manager. Cal’s an avid golfer, which allows him to continue practicing patience. His home wouldn’t be complete without his wife, and their two Boxers, who continue to think they are lap dogs, even though they are full grown!

Jessica Leavitt

Executive Assistant

Jessica’s background includes fashion design, retail management, sales, social media management and content creation. Her positive demeanor, entrepreneurial spirit and can-do attitude help with all facets in her current role at Alair Savannah as director of marketing and admin. The variety of day to day activities engages many of Jessica’s past experience as well as allowing her chances to innovate, create and energize with the team. Her home is filled with artwork, as collecting is a huge passion of hers.

Chris Powell

Lead Carpenter

Maybe it’s all the Red Bull®, but enthusiasm abounds with our Lead Carpenter, Chris Powell.  Chris is born and raised in Savannah and cut his teeth working with master carpenters. He is responsible for keeping our job sites safe and clean, as well as filling in and being a jack-of-all trades. On the weekends you may find Chris hitting the track with his motorcycle.

Glen Zittrouer

Project Manager

Growing up with a builder father, Glen has been around the language and pace of building his whole life. With the calmest, coolest demeanor, Glen’s the guy whose feathers don’t get ruffled. He makes a great project manager because he is comforting and reassuring to clients and he doesn’t let unexpected situations rattle him. Teaching and developing subcontractors and vendors is another area where Glen shines. Glen enjoys coastal life and spending time with his son.

Emmy Ray

Project Manager

With a diverse career background and an eye for renovation work in her personal life, Emmy joins our team as a project manager.  With a determination to help others, a strong work ethic and killer communication skills – Emmy knows a thing or two about going the extra mile for her clients. She has over 8 years of account and project management experience working in fields such as marketing and recruitment.  In her free time she likes to spend time with her family [sometimes yelling at her two daughters], train for marathons [hates every minute of it], listen to murder mystery podcasts [investigative research is another hidden talent] and loving on her sweet husband, who comes second to her dog, Birdie. Clearly, humor and laughter are other great traits of Emmy’s personality!

Catherine Lovett

Selection Co-ordinator

As an artist, Catherine brings her love of aesthetics to the role of selections coordinator. As a former client she also has insights and experience with our process that is unmatched. She has an immediate warmth that clients loves and her eye for detail and visualization make her a natural at scanning floor plans or picking statement making wallpapers and tile. She has a unique ability to hone in on a person’s style and translate into budget friendly options for their home. Catherine stays active playing tennis and chasing her Silkie chickens around her backyard!  She also enjoys a libation on her beautiful back porch overlooking the marsh.
