CEO Today - USA Awards 2022

A true American success story, PulteGroup got its start in 1950 when 18-year-old William “Bill” Pulte, with help from his high-school buddies, built a five-room bungalow near the city of Detroit, MI. In constructing his first home, Bill set the corner stone on what would grow into one of the largest and most successful homebuilding companies in this country’s history. In a world where less than one-third of new businesses ever get to celebrate their 10-year anniversary, PulteGroup’s long history of success is a testament to Bill’s vision and the passionate people who have worked to fulfill it over the years. Today, PulteGroup is the nation’s third largest builder with an unmatched capacity to serve homeowners as they move through all stages of their lives. Much has changed since Bill Pulte first picked up a hammer, but not the Company’s commitment to delivering a superior quality home and customer experience. Since our founding in 1950, PulteGroup has delivered almost 750,000 homes throughout the United States. What began as a single home built by the hands and entrepreneurial spirit of our founder Bill Pulte, is today the nation’s third largest homebuilder with operations in over 40 major cities. Marketing under some of the industry’s best known brands: Pulte, Centex, Del Webb, DiVosta, American West, and John Wieland Homes and Neighborhoods, we can meet the needs of first-time, move-up and active-adult homebuyers. PulteGroup sells under many of the most recognized and trusted brands in homebuilding. Each of our brands offers innovative floor plans designed to meet that buyer’s wants and needs, while all provide the superior construction quality and customer experience PulteGroup has been delivering for 70 years. PulteGroup operates against a stated objective of delivering high returns on invested capital and equity over the housing cycle. Research indicates that high ROIC and ROE are key drivers to creating long-term shareholder value in the homebuilding industry. This focus has helped the Company raise key operating and financial metrics to be among the industry leaders. Our Vision Today it all startswithasimplestatement that articulates a very lofty ambition: be considered the country’s most respected homebuilder. To be respected requires that we are doing a lot of things right. Our Purpose Bill Pulte passed away in 2018, but there is no doubt he would be pleased with our success, and proud to see that his values remain at the core of who we are. Now entering its eighth decade, PulteGroup continues to embrace the idea that it’s a privilege to build a customer’s new home. Ryan R.
