Longtime home building veteran will lead the builder's expansion in middle Tennessee.

Davidson Homes, based in Huntsville, Alabama, has named Tom Thomas as Nashville division president. Thomas will be responsible for the company's operations in Nashville and surrounding areas.

Founded in 2009, Davidson Homes specializes in developments within close proximity of fast-growth cities such as Nashville.

The company entered the greater Nashville market in June 2018. It currently offers homes in the Liberty Creek community in Gallatin, the Hearthstone community in Lebanon, the Shelton Square, and Rivers Edge communities in Murfreesboro, and The Meadows community in Smyrna.

"Middle Tennessee remains an integral part of our growth plan to expand across the southeast," said Adam Davidson, founder, president and CEO of Davidson Homes. "Tom is the perfect executive to lead our team and continue our mission of providing customers with homes that are built expertly and affordably."

Thomas will report to Davidson Homes' regional president, Greg Duriez.

"Adam and Greg have built an incredible company that has an outstanding reputation, and it has all the pieces in place to continue to grow in Middle Tennessee and the southeast," said Thomas. "Nashville is a thriving, vibrant market, and the city has an amazing culture. I couldn't be more excited about joining the Davidson Homes team and helping increase our presence in this great area of the country."

A veteran with nearly 22 years of home-building experience, before joining Davidson Homes, Thomas founded Thomas Construction and Development in Drayden, Maryland. Before that, he served as division president for the Capital Division of D.R. Horton. Thomas also has worked for home builders such as Stanley Martin Companies, Horizon Builders and Beazer Homes. He earned his bachelor's degree from Hobart College in Geneva, New York.

In addition to Tennessee, Davidson Homes also operates in Alabama and North Carolina. The company plans to expand into the Atlanta market in 2020 and continue expansions in the southeastern U.S. in the near future.
