History & The Team
Viking Custom Homes began over 30 years ago, but we haven’t compromised our passion for top-quality craftsmanship and excellent customer service. Unlike other area builders, we focus on putting all of our efforts into a smaller number of homes every year. Each of our customers receives consistent, one-on-one involvement from our team.
Cary Cumberland, President of Viking Custom Homes
Cary Cumberland, President of Viking Custom Homes, graduated with a Marketing degree from Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania. With his 50-year family history in the building industry and over 30 years of personal experience, Cary is unrivaled in his technical knowledge of all aspects of the trade. His hands-on approach keeps him in the field on job sites to ensure excellence. He has nurtured mutually beneficial relationships with suppliers, subcontractors, and real estate agents, enabling Viking to consistently obtain premiere lots, acquire new land development projects, and deliver a top quality product. Cary resides in Howard County with his wife, Lisa and three children. When he’s not working, you might catch him flying overhead, mountain biking, or fishing on the bay.
Vince Coleianne, Founder and Vice President of Finance and Accounting
Vince Coleianne, founder and Vice President of Finance and Accounting, earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Loyola College and a Masters from the University of Maryland. His experience with the construction and real estate industries spans 50+ years and encompasses Baltimore, Howard, Carroll, and Frederick counties. Today, in addition to assuming all finance and accounting duties, Vince heads Viking’s remodeling division with unsurpassed attention-to-detail and focus on customer communication and satisfaction. Years ago, he established Viking’s trademarks of “quality and experience” and he continues to guide the organization in its focus and dedication to both. Mr. Vince, as we like to call him, enjoys spending time with his wife and spoiling his grandchildren. He continues to live in one of the first homes ever built by Viking Custom Homes. With a passion for living right and exercising, he has been known to jog to work frequently – at least that’s his story when he shows up in sweat pants.
Lisa Cumberland, Director of Communications

Her professional experience includes 20 years in the corporate arena, with expertise in writing and a strong background in customer relations.

He spends nearly 100% of his time in the field overseeing all aspects of the custom home construction process.
