HBA of Greenville CEO Michael Dey Receives National Award

The National Association of Home Builders honored Home Builders Association of Greenville CEO Michael Dey with its inaugural Local Executive Officer of the Year Award during the Meeting of the Members at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando.

“Association executive officers are often the unsung heroes of the National Association of Home Builders Federation. They do yeoman’s work to serve our members and advance the needs of the housing industry,” said National Association of Home Builders CEO Jerry Howard during the award presentation.

The award recognizes the dedication, loyalty and commitment of Executive Officers who stand out for consistently promoting the value of membership and working tirelessly on behalf of their members and the Federation during the past year.

This award is unique, as the National Association of Home Builders’ staff senior management team nominated the candidates and the Senior Officers selected the winners.

Each winner received a $1,000 check, and contributions to the National Housing Endowment/Executive Officers Council Student Scholarship Fund will be made in each of their names.

Installation as 2017 Executive Officers Council Chair
Michael was also installed as the 2017 Executive Officers Council Chair at a separate meeting at the International Builders' Show. In this role, Michael will lead the executive officers of local and state Home Builders Associations as Chair to their council. The leadership and innovative thinking proven at his role in Greenville has prepared him well for this position.
