D’Ann Brown, StrucSure Home Warranty

The Texas Association of Builders (TAB) is recently announce the winners of the 2017 Excellence under 45 Award Winners. Congratulations to local GHBA member D’Ann Brown, vice president of sales for StrucSure Home Warranty, who was one of four 2017 honorees.

All of the recipients are to be commended for their commitment of time, energy and efforts to the growth and prosperity of the Texas building industry. Their unmatched enthusiasm and love for building, proves that the residential home building future is in good hands.


D’Ann Brown was first exposed to the home building industry as a toddler in the 1970s, as her parents were builders. She watched them be successful and give back to this industry while growing up. When she had the opportunity to enter the home building industry and join StrucSure Home Warranty in 2001, she jumped at the chance. In order to grow and be successful, Brown knew she had to get involved with the local, state and nation home builders associations. That she has done. There’s not a better place to learn and give back than being an active member of the Greater Houston Builders Association, she says.

Courtney M Black, Director of Marketing & Communications for Permian Homes
D’Ann Brown, Vice President of Sales for StrucSure Home Warranty
Henry J. Hantz, Marketing Development Representative for Atmos Energy
John D. McKinney, Owner of McKinney Homes LLC
