TAMPA, FL, Dec. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Mattamy Homes, a leading North American homebuilder, is pleased to announce the launch of its newest division – Tampa.
Mattamy's entrance into the Tampa market is the latest example of the company's commitment to being a major presence in the Florida homebuilding industry, and of its confidence in the future of housing locally.
"We believe that Tampa, with its diverse population and economic base, will nicely complement our other Florida divisions in Jacksonville and Orlando, and is the next great opportunity for us to build the Mattamy brand and business in this large and growing market," says Steve Parker, President of Mattamy's US Group. "We're very much looking forward to being able to offer the unique Mattamy designs and communities to homebuyers in Tampa."
To lead the company's newest division, Mattamy welcomes aboard Ed Suchora, who joined the team in November as President, Tampa Division. Ed has had an impressive 20-year career in the Florida and area homebuilding industry. He spent the last 15 years with Beazer Homes, most recently as their Division President in Tampa. He also held executive roles with Beazer in land development, and in sales & marketing, across Florida as well as in Georgia and South Carolina. Ed also worked for Pulte Homes in construction and land acquisition roles, mostly in Orlando. He has a Bachelor of Science degree and an MBA from the University of Central Florida.
Ed will be responsible for leading all aspects of Mattamy's business in Tampa. Initially this will include sourcing acquisitions and significantly building the company's land base in the area. Ed will be setting up the local Mattamy office, hiring staff and quickly growing Tampa into an operating division.
"We are thrilled to have the opportunity for Ed to guide our newest Division through the exciting start-up phase and beyond," says Steve Parker. "His knowledge of and experience in this market are going to be invaluable as we expand our presence in Tampa as part of a significant growth plan in Florida."
Mattamy is continuing to make a name for itself in the Florida homebuilding market, where it first launched operations in Jacksonville in 2003, followed by Orlando in 2009. The Jacksonville Division was recognized in 2012 as the number one builder in the US for customer experience. Mattamy is a top 10 builder in Orlando by closings, and has made a number of major acquisitions recently, totaling more than $50 million and with the potential for 2,000+ lots. The company is anticipating similar success stories from its new Tampa Division.
