David Smith, president of Jacksonville operations, Pulte Homes

Home building executive David Smith, who worked for Pulte Homes from 2001 to 2007, has returned to Pulte as president of the Jacksonville operations of the company’s North Florida Division.

Clint Ball will continue as president of Pulte’s North Florida Division and will focus on the Orlando area. “Adding [David] Smith in Jacksonville allows the company to have dedicated leadership in both markets,” Pulte said in a press release.

“We want to grow to a comfortable level in Jacksonville that’s sustainable in the marketplace and be able to offer our … products to more home buyers,” Peter Keane, the Florida area president of Pulte, said in a prepared statement. “We knew David was the person who could best help us accomplish this, so we sought him out and brought him back.”

Smith was a Jacksonville-based division president of Pulte until 2007 before leaving the company and serving more than five years as a Jacksonville-based division president of AV Homes.

Atlanta-based Pulte is building houses in several master-planned developments in the Jacksonville area, including Nocatee, Palencia and Twin Creeks. – Mike Seemuth
