JOHN R. RAESE

CHAIRMAN

A native son and lifelong resident of West Virginia, John Raese serves as president and CEO of Greer Industries, which include Greer Limestone, Greer Lime, Greer Steel and Preston County Coal and Coke. He is also Chairman of the Board of West Virginia Radio Corporation.

Growing up in University City, the son of the late Jane Greer Raese and former WVU basketball coach Richard A. “Dyke” Raese, John attended public schools and earned a B. S. degree from West Virginia University in 1973 where he played freshman basketball and varsity baseball.

An avid sportsman and hunter, John also adopted his father’s love of the game of golf. He cut out a five hundred acre track of Greer land on Monongalia County’s Kingwood Pike, where he designed and developed Pikewood National Golf Club. In 2009 Pikewood earned the distinguished honor of “Best New Private Course” in the nation by Golf Digest Magazine and last year was named one of the world’s top ten “one hit wonders” by Links Magazine joining courses such as Pine Valley, Oakmont and Pebble Beach as the best golf courses designed by a first time architect.

John and wife Elizabeth have two daughters.
