In 2009, Tom and his two business partners shared a vision for a new kind of homebuilding company and they formed TRI Pointe Homes. TRI Pointe Homes quickly became a publicly held company, trading under “TPH” on the NYSE. Shortly thereafter, the company merged with Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Company to become TRI Pointe Group. This merger created one of the top 10 largest public homebuilding companies in the United States by equity market capitalization. TRI Pointe Group represented a family of six premium local homebuilders in nine states and nineteen markets, and was recognized as 2014 Developer of the Year, 2015 Builder of the Year and among FORTUNE's 100 Fastest-Growing Companies in 2017.
n 2021, this innovative, design-forward company became Tri Pointe Homes, a unified brand that brings the best of big and small to all its homebuyers, with operations in 10 states and the District of Columbia, and was also recognized as a Great Place to Work-Certified™ company for 2021-2022.
Tom has more than 30 years of experience in the real estate development and homebuilding industry, including a tenure with William Lyon Homes, where he served as Executive Vice President. He has significant experience in land acquisition, entitlement and development, project planning, product design, construction operations, finance, sales and marketing, and customer satisfaction.
