Meritage Homes Corporation appointed two division presidents with Phil Bodem joining the homebuilder to head up the Southern California Division and Christopher Ryan coming on board as Florida Division President.
The company said the appointments will help it pursue its growth strategies in these key markets.
Bodem joins Meritage Homes with more than 26 years of experience in homebuilding, including 15 years as a division president. In his previous roles with Taylor Morrison, Morrison Homes and Stellar Homes, he led his teams through the economic downturn in 2008 and prepared the division for growth and recovery in subsequent years.
Among his responsibilities, Mr. Bodem will oversee Meritage’s Southern California growth strategy and day-to-day operations, including land acquisition and development, home construction, customer service, sales and marketing.
“We are pleased to welcome Phil to Meritage Homes,” said Meritage Homes Chief Operating Officer Phillippe Lord. “With his proven experience in the Southern California market and genuine passion for our business, I am confident that Phil will help accelerate our growth across Southern California.”
A graduate of Santa Clara University with a B.S. in political science, Mr. Bodem has also been an active participant in his community, serving on a variety of industry association boards. He currently serves as acting president of the Building Industry Association of Orange County.
Ryan will be responsible for growing the company's presence in the Tampa, Bradenton and Sarasota areas. He will oversee the division’s growth strategy and day-to-day operations, including land acquisition and development, home construction, customer service, sales and marketing.
Ryan brings more than 27 years of experience in the homebuilding industry, with a consistent track record of improving revenues, providing fiscal planning and leading operations teams in uniquely challenging markets.
