“James is a versatile manager who brings a wealth of experience in many elements of the homebuilding process,” said Jason Kliewer, partner and general counsel for Trumark Homes. “He will be an invaluable asset as Trumark moves aggressively in the California market.”

During his tenure with Meritage Homes, Richmond American Homes and Beazer Homes USA, Furey has overseen land acquisition and disposition, entitlement processing, land development and forward planning. Over the past decade, he has secured discretionary entitlements for more than 1,000 residential units and participated in the acquisition and disposition of more than 3,500 future residential units representing a residual land value in excess of $250 million.

In Northern California, the Trumark name is most often associated with community design, entitlements and office, R&D and retail development, which the company has focused on since its inception in 1988. Trumark Homes, the company’s single-family homebuilding division launched five years ago, has completed two communities in Southern California and has four under way in the Bay Area.

Furey received his master’s degree in real estate development from the University of Southern California and his bachelor’s degree in business administration from California State University at Hayward.
