Texas Builder Elected as NAHB Chairman of the Board
Taking the helm as NAHB’s 2017 chairman of the board of directors is Granger MacDonald, a Kerrville, Texas-based builder and developer with more than 40 years of experience in the home building industry. MacDonald is chairman and CEO of the MacDonald Companies, a diverse development, construction, and property management enterprise with nearly 50 neighborhoods completed and managed throughout Texas.
“We will work this year to prevent expensive, pointless regulations from impeding home building and housing affordability and partner with the Trump administration and new Congress to promote policies that encourage homeownership and affordable rental opportunities for all Americans,” said MacDonald.
“Specifically, we will seek to reform the regulatory process and ensure any tax reform efforts protect vital housing tax incentives that are needed to keep the economy moving forward. We will also urge Congress to enact comprehensive housing finance reform, with the federal government acting as a backstop in times of crisis, to protect the 30-year mortgage and bring the flow of private capital back into the marketplace,” adds MacDonald.
About NAHB: With more than 700 affiliated state and local home builders associations and more than 140,000 members across the country, the National Association of Home Builders represents the interests of the nation’s housing professionals through advocacy, education and research.
