Beazer Homes USA, Inc. today announced the appointment of Nick Peacock to Vice President, Lender Relations.

His work will help simplify and enhance the financing process for our homebuyers.” Mr. Peacock has worked in the mortgage business for 26 years with experience working for various banks and lending institutions as well as part of the financing arms of other public builders.
