Bill is a successful builder himself with extensive experience in both the production and custom building sectors. Bill believed that the efficiencies and purchasing power of a large production building operation could be harnessed by smaller companies working together in the market, and founded CBUSA with this goal in mind. The company remains dedicated to the improvement of both the business practices and the financial performance of custom and independent building companies across the country. Bill's vision of building the most powerful national network of privately-owned builders has become a reality through CBUSA, and the company's use of technology, process development and relationship building has set a new standard of excellence for the industry.
Bill began his building career at Ryland Homes, where he worked in all phases of Division operations. During his 10 years with the company, Bill was integrally involved in the formation and implementation of strategies and business systems necessary for success in the highly competitive world of production building. In 1992, Bill was promoted to Division President, becoming the youngest executive officer in the company. In 1995, Bill left Ryland to start University Homes, a high-end custom building company that was named Builder of the Year in 2003 by the Custom Builders Council of Northern Virginia. Bill is a past Chairman of the NVBIA Custom Builders Council and former member of the NAHB Builder 20 Club program. In 2006, Bill was chosen by Builder Magazine as one of “The 50 Most Influential People in Home Building”.
Bill is a graduate of Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia with a BA in Political Science.
