National homebuilding giant PulteGroup Inc. Executive Vice President and COO John Chadwick will retire next year and be replaced by senior vice president for field operations Brandon Jones, effective Jan. 1, 2023.
Chadwick will remain at the Atlanta-based company until April 2023 to assist with the transition.
Jones will report directly to PulteGroup President and CEO Ryan Marshall and be responsible for homebuilding operations, including construction, sales, marketing, product development and procurement.
“John has been a valued friend and colleague at PulteGroup for more than 30 years,” Marshall said in a press release. “His contributions to our business are many, including advancing our unrelenting focus on quality, expanding our reach into new markets and driving improved financial performance throughout our operations.”
Jones started at PulteGroup 18 years ago as director of operations in Arizona before serving as vice president of sales in New Mexico, division president for the Michigan, Illinois and Georgia divisions and area president for the company’s southeast area. He was promoted to his current role in 2021.
“In his most recent role, Brandon has led innovations and improvements in experiences for the customer, successfully navigated a difficult supply chain environment and led our field teams to deliver superior construction quality and customer experience,” Marshall said.
Jones has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in management information systems from Brigham Young University. Before PulteGroup, he worked at Intel and as an IT consultant.
