  • (1888PressRelease) September 19, 2014 - Richmond, VA - Wisdom brings more than 26 years of homebuilding industry experience and leadership to his position, as well as an extensive and proven track record of success.

    As President of HHHunt Homes, and from its Richmond, Virginia office, Wisdom will provide strategic leadership and vision to divisional operating entities and associates; ensure that established company business objectives are achieved, and effectively impart the company's vision, mission and core values.

    Additionally, Wisdom's responsibilities include progressive land acquisition; strategic market research, analysis and forecasts; team member recruitment and training; directing homebuilding operations with a focus on construction quality, cost control, scheduling and safety; and leading multiple major profit centers, with a primary objective of developing and managing sales, construction and service warranty organizations to maximize profits while maintaining HHHunt Homes' benchmark standards of excellence.

    "This role is so critically important because of the high standards we have set for HHHunt Homes; the aggressive pace of our growth; our plan to expand into new markets; the need to develop our people within the organization and our unique company culture," said Daniel T. Schmitt, president and chief operating officer of HHHunt, parent company of HHHunt Homes. "After a rigorous evaluation process that included multiple key leaders within our industry, we have invited Larry Wisdom to join us as president of HHHunt Homes. We're very pleased to welcome him."
