CEO BUILDER PANEL — Facilitator John McManus jmcmanus@hanleywood.com Strategy and the Cycle: What do five presidents and CEOs of major home building organizations expect as a new growth-driven policy era converges with a seven-year-old housing cycle? How will builder enterprises manage for resurgent home buyer demand and attainable mortgage finance among waves of young adult Millennials, a crescendo of interest from 55+ aging Baby Boomers, ongoing labor capacity issues, a shortage of finished homesites, and a plague of local, regional, and national regulation, fees, and delays? Even more important, how will site-built legacy companies disrupt themselves to transform into housing innovators, enabled by data, technology, and materials science to thrive in residential new construction for years to come? A frank, lively, far-ranging discussion among some of the big builder community’s most-respected leaders.
