After developer Ben Krupinski’s June 2 death in a plane crash in the waters off Amagansett, two longtime employees of his luxury home building business have begun running the company, 27East reported. The two men, Stratton Schellinger and Ray Harden, assumed leadership at the end of that month. They’d worked their way up from construction jobs to leadership positions with Krupinski’s firm for 31 and 16 years respectively. Before his death, Krupinski had laid the groundwork for the transition with the two men. The company, which is headquartered in East Hampton, employs about 150 carpenters and other workers, building luxury homes throughout New York and Connecticut. [27East]
