WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 5, 2016) – (RealEstateRama) — The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) announced that John “Ed” Easley, president of LMC Development, a Lennar Company, has been appointed chairman of NAHB’s Multifamily Leadership Board (MLB). Easley succeeds W. Dean Henry, CEO of Legacy Partners Residential.
“The NAHB Multifamily Leadership Board is an outstanding platform, providing an intimate forum for key industry leaders to discuss industry challenges and opportunities,” said Easley. “As chairman, I hope to strategically expand both our membership and our ability to advocate for the multifamily housing industry.”
Since he began his real estate career in 1973, Easley has worked with many of the country’s most well-respected multifamily housing firms, including JPI, Crown Pacific Properties, the Picerne Group and Windsor Properties. He has been involved in the acquisition and development of more than $7 billion in real estate.
In addition to leading the NAHB MLB, Easley is a full member of the Urban Land Institute.
NAHB established the Multifamily Leadership Board as a forum for the nation’s leading multifamily developers, owners and managers to marshal the legislative, regulatory and research capabilities of NAHB on behalf of its multifamily members, and to increase public awareness of both rental and for-sale apartment homes as a critical sector of the housing market.
