Sable Homes President John Bitely named GRBJ’s 200 Most Powerful Business Leaders in West Michigan

For the third year in a row, Sable Homes President John Bitely has been named one of Grand Rapids Business Journal’s 200 Most Powerful Business Leaders in West Michigan.

Bitely, who founded Sable Developing Inc. in 1996, will be recognized as one of West Michigan’s most powerful business executives in GRBJ’s annual fall magazine, Grand Rapids 200. He was also recognized in GRBJ’s list in 2019 and 2020.

Produced by the GRBJ staff, the annual publication celebrates West Michigan’s leading business executives across myriad industries. After lengthy research and due diligence, the editorial staff selected the Top 200 West Michigan executives for the indelible marks they continue to make on our business community, as well as the unparalleled thought-leadership they possess, according to GRBJ.

At the time Bitely founded Sable Developing, the company’s focus was on residential development. Since then, it has evolved into Sable Homes and Sable Realty as a way to provide land development, home construction and sales.

“It is an honor to again be recognized by the Grand Rapids Business Journal’s editorial staff as a Top 200 business leader in West Michigan for 2021,” Bitely said. “We have a team of dedicated staff at Sable Homes who are committed to creating housing opportunities for those at the core of the West Michigan community.”
