RIVERVIEW, FL, Oct. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - Mattamy Homes, North America's largest privately owned homebuilder, is pleased to announce that Jim Birkholz has joined the company as President of its Tampa-Sarasota Division, effective Sept. 30, 2016. Jim will oversee all aspects of Mattamy's business – including land acquisition and development, marketing, sales and construction – in the Tampa and Sarasota markets.
Jim is actually welcomed back to Mattamy, having previously been the company's Minnesota Division President from 2008-2009.
Jim has held executive leadership roles in the homebuilding industry for 15 years, across a number of markets. Most recently he was with the CalAtlantic Group as President of their Northeast Florida Division. In addition to his former role with Mattamy in Minnesota, he was the Northeast Florida Division President with Standard Pacific Homes, Managing Director of the Pinnacle Consulting Group, President of Centex's Myrtle Beach and Virginia Beach Divisions, and VP Operations of Pulte's Atlanta Division. Jim has a Bachelor of Science with a Finance major and Marketing minor from Miami University and an MBA (Management, Finance, Real Estate) from Northwestern University's Kellogg Graduate School of Business.
"Jim brings a wealth of business and people leadership experience to Mattamy, and we are very much looking forward to him leading the Tampa-Sarasota Division forward," says Jim Leiferman, President of Mattamy's US Group. "We're pleased and fortunate that he made the decision to return to Mattamy, as it's an exciting time for our business in western Florida, and he is the ideal person to take the reins for us."
"I re-joined Mattamy because of the strength of the senior leadership team in the US and the company's private status, which facilitates a long-term focus on creating value in the homebuilding space," says Jim. "Mattamy's US business has tremendous opportunity for future growth and I look forward working with the Tampa-Sarasota team to help capitalize on and contribute to that opportunity in the years to come."
