Tom Thomas Named President of our Nashville Division
Effective immediately, we have named Tom Thomas as our Nashville division president. Thomas reports to Regional President Greg Duriez and will be responsible for the company’s Nashville operations.
The appointment reinforces our commitment to Middle Tennessee. We entered the greater Nashville market in June 2018, and we currently offer homes in the Liberty Creek community in Gallatin, the Hearthstone community in Lebanon, the Shelton Square ,and Rivers Edge communities in Murfreesboro, and The Meadows community in Smyrna.
“Middle Tennessee remains an integral part of our growth plan to expand across the southeast,” said Adam Davidson, founder, president and CEO of Davidson Homes. “Tom is the perfect executive to lead our team and continue our mission of providing customers with homes that are built expertly and affordably.”
“Tom has a proven track record of understanding what customers are looking for in a new construction home and anticipating where people want to live in a given market,” said Greg Duriez, regional president. “That experience, combined with his success working for different home builders across the country, makes him uniquely qualified to lead our team in Middle Tennessee.”
“Adam and Greg have built an incredible company that has an outstanding reputation, and it has all the pieces in place to continue to grow in Middle Tennessee and the southeast,” said Thomas. “Nashville is a thriving, vibrant market, and the city has an amazing culture. I couldn’t be more excited about joining the Davidson Homes team and helping increase our presence in this great area of the country.”
A veteran with nearly 22 years of homebuilding experience, before joining Davidson Homes, Thomas founded Thomas Construction and Development in Drayden, Maryland. Before that, he served as division president for the Capital Division of D.R. Horton. Thomas also has worked for homebuilders such as Stanley Martin Companies, Horizon Builders and Beazer Homes Holdings. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Hobart College in Geneva, New York.
In addition to Tennessee, we also operate in Alabama and North Carolina. The company closed on 311 homes last year and reached the 1,000-closing milestone in December 2019. We plan to expand into the Atlanta market in 2020 and to continue expansions in the southeastern US in the near future.
