In his role, Mr. Rush will lead the planning and execution of sales and marketing initiatives in the Charlotte Division, while working closely with the Charlotte Division President and Orleans' corporate office, to support the company's overall vision and promote its continued growth.

Chief marketing officer Lee Darnold notes, "Kyle is well-versed in the Charlotte market, having worked with several homebuilders in the region, and after the outstanding results he was able to achieve in South Carolina and Atlanta last year, we're excited to see the positive impact he'll have for us in Charlotte."
