Meet the Team


Founder and Chairman John Menghini

John currently serves as Chairman of Covenant Custom Homes and is the company’s founder. Prior to opening Covenant Custom Homes, John served as Chairman of Veritas Partners, a management company that owned and operated several businesses across a range of industries. Before that, John spent 23 years as President and Chief Executive Officer of Gear for Sports, a $200 million athletic apparel company located in Kansas City.

John attended Hofstra University in New York and received a degree in Business in 1972.

John Says "Perhaps, the last truly custom and creative endeavor left in America is custom home building.  We start with a blank sheet of paper and end with a unique, personalized and well functioning home that will provide much more than mere shelter for generations to come.  That means we get to touch the future in a meaningful way every day."
