"Jim is an executive with a proven history of successful business and organizational development," says Steve Parker, President of Mattamy's US Group. "We look forward to him guiding Mattamy's Orlando Division through an exciting period of growth."
Mattamy is continuing to make a name for itself in the Orlando market, where it launched operations in 2009. In the last 18 months, the company has made a number of major acquisitions, totaling more than $50 million and with the potential for 2,000+ lots, including Randal Park ($18 million, 560 lots) and Tapestry ($15 million, 1,100 lots), both of which will be opening for sale in 2014.
