Beazer Homes USA, Inc. (NYSE: BZH) announced today the appointment of Ed Gold to Maryland Division President and John Reeves to Virginia Division President.
Until recently, Beazer had managed its business in the Maryland and Virginia markets as a single division. With these joint appointments, Beazer is deepening its commitment to the Mid-Atlantic region and intends to pursue growth strategies to increase its number of new home communities in each division. Beazer currently operates approximately 30 communities in the Mid-Atlantic, located in three states with division offices located in Columbia, Maryland and Chantilly, Virginia.
Mr. Gold joins Beazer from a privately held Maryland-based homebuilder, which he founded and has successfully operated for the past 7 years. Prior to that position, Mr. Gold was President of Ryland Homes’ Mid-Atlantic division. He is a board member of Maryland Family Network and graduated from George Washington University with a Bachelor of Science and a Masters degree in business administration. In addition, Mr. Gold earned his Juris Doctor degree from Pace University School of Law. Mr. Gold officially joins Beazer on November 26, 2012.
Mr. Reeves is a veteran homebuilding executive with prior experience leading Washington DC metropolitan area divisions for two other national homebuilders, Pulte Homes and KB Homes. Mr. Reeves started his career in homebuilding 12 years ago as a finance professional and, over time, moved into division operating positions of increasing responsibility. Mr. Reeves graduated from Colgate University with a Bachelor of Arts in economics and received a Masters degree in public accounting from the University of Hartford. Mr. Reeves officially joined Beazer on October 1, 2012.
Allan P. Merrill, President and CEO said, “We are extremely pleased to welcome Ed and John to Beazer Homes. Both possess proven management experience and deep local expertise, gained in a variety of economic climates. Together with their genuine passion for the homebuilding business, their skills are exactly what we need to successfully increase the scale of our operations in the Mid-Atlantic region.”
