“In these trying times, we are thrilled to be honored by such an esteemed organization for our company’s story and heart that truly transcends every facet of our brand... and we will continue to proudly serve as a beacon in the homebuilding community.”
Sheryl Palmer, Taylor Morrison Chairman and CEO
Taylor Morrison’s bold strategic path – toward extending its geographical footprint, shoring up its “barbell strategy” customer segmentation balance, expanding its real estate pipeline, burrowing boldly into the single-family-for-rent vanguard – date back eight years to its $722 million IPO, and acquisition of Texas-based Darling Homes.
The strategic “wins” of the past 18 months – as Taylor Morrison raced to be both the leading home builder its customers aspire to come to, and an enterprise its shareholders can count on for sustainable value creation – shine no less brightly for the fact of COVID-19’s sudden, bewildering impact.
Completion of integration of late-2018 acquisition of AV Homes, fueling a new engine of opportunity versus the surging entry-level market.
Completion of a strategic agreement to supply real estate and production capacity to single-family-built-for-rent community developer Christopher Todd Communities.
Acquisition of William Lyon Homes, giving the enterprise even greater strength consistent with its customer segmentation focus, adding purchasing and local land intel clout, and marrying with another powerful brand in customer trust, credibility, and quality.
“The Taylor Morrison team, under Sheryl Palmer’s leadership, is an inspirational example of resilience and adaptability in action in any time, but never more than now."
