Mr. Douglass builds on an extensive background in development and planning that includes managing the construction of more than 10,000 homes – from entry level to multi-million dollar products and high-rise developments – with revenues well in excess of $3 billion. Prior to joining Trumark Homes, he led Southern California operations as Division President for Ryland Homes, and has also served as Southern California Division President for Centex Homes.
“Richard is a gifted leader who delivers tremendous results,” said Trumark Homes Co-Founder Michael Maples. “His depth of expertise in the Southern California building industry, and unique ability to lead and inspire the people around him will serve as a key asset for our company in this newly created role. Together, I am confident we will have an even greater impact on Southern California.”
Mr. Douglass is an integral member of the Building Industry Association of Southern California, where he recently held a position on the Governance Committee and also served as the President for the Orange County Chapter in 2004. For his commitment to the community beyond the building industry, he received the “Spirit of Life” Award from The City of Hope and the “Good Scout” Award from the Boy Scouts of America.
“Trumark Homes is a true leader in the homebuilding industry with an esteemed reputation for developing communities tailored to meet the needs and desires of their target buyers,” said Mr. Douglass. “As Southern California continues to rank among the hottest housing markets in the country, this is an opportune time to join Trumark Homes and help them bring new projects to life in the region.”
A native of San Clemente, Mr. Douglass received his BA in Political Science from Long Beach State and attended Orange Coast College, where he graduated from the school’s Construction Technology and Applied Mathematics program. He is also a past AICP member of the American Planning Association.
