Tri Pointe Homes, Inc.

Douglas (Doug) Bauer serves as the Chief Executive Officer. Prior to forming Tri Pointe Homes, Doug was the President and Chief Operating Officer for William Lyon Homes where he also served as Chief Financial Officer and President of its Northern California Division.

He is actively involved in both legislative efforts and community enhancement programs through the California Building Industry Association and HomeAid Orange County, a charitable organization that builds shelters for the temporarily homeless.

After receiving his B.A. from the University of Oregon, Doug went on to finish his M.B.A. at the University of Southern California. When he's not working on Tri Pointe, Doug likes to work on bettering his triathlon times for both exercise and pleasure.


In 2009, Doug Bauer, Tom Mitchell and Mike Grubbs shared a vision and concept for a new kind of homebuilding company-one driven by home design that provides homebuyers and their families with a lifetime of experiences.

That year, the economic downturn crippled many industries. However, they recognized this time as an opportunity to bring their vision to life. They drew upon their 25+ years of homebuilding know-how to create TRI Pointe Homes.

TRI Pointe Homes quickly became a publicly held company, trading under 'TPH' on the NYSE. It was the first IPO in homebuilding to emerge after the downturn. Within 5 years, the company merged with Weyerhaeuser Real Estate Company (WRECO), which operated five distinct homebuilding companies in seven states, and became TRI Pointe Group¨. This merger created one of the top 10 largest public homebuilding companies in the United States based on revenue. Just six years later, TRI Pointe Group and its six regional homebuilding brands, composed of TRI Pointe Homes in California, Colorado and the Carolinas; Maracay in Arizona; Pardee Homes in California and Nevada; Quadrant Homes in Washington; Trendmaker Homes in Texas; and Winchester¨ Homes1 in Maryland and Northern Virginia had delighted more than 28,000 homeowners, establishing 330 beautiful neighborhoods and 15 incredible masterplan communities, and winning over 270 separate awards, while supporting more than 150 community causes.

In 2021, this innovative, design-forward company became Tri Pointe Homes, a unified brand that brings the best of big and small to all its homebuyers, with operations in 10 states and the District of Columbia. As Tri Pointe Homes, the company continues to support and celebrate the longevity of team members and their local-market expertise and relationships.


We are local specialists on a national scale. Proud of our homegrown heritage and trusted community relationships. Empowered by the combined strength of our company-wide financial resources, design leadership and technology platforms. ItÕs big thinking with a personal approach that fuels our future.

Homebuyers are our inspiration. Where we build, how we design and the overall experience we create all spring from a deep understanding of how our customers want to live. We donÕt just focus on life inside the home, we believe in building community, in every sense of the word - from the connected locations we select to our commitment to social responsibility. Stated simply, our goal is to create solutions that far exceed our homebuyers' expectations and truly enhance their lives.

WeÕre recognized in this industry for setting trends and paving new paths forward. We approach the entire homeowning experience - from design, to personalization and craftsmanship - with the same open-minded, progressive spirit as other leading lifestyle brands. The result is innovative programs like LivingSmart, our commitment to healthy and environmentally responsible business practices and Tri Pointe Solutions¨, our suite of services that streamline the buying process, start to finish. We're not just a leading homebuilder. We're about making a premium lifestyle possible for our customers, whatever their price point or life stage.

We are a people-first company - a team of passionate individuals who see our mission of being in the life-changing business as a true calling. Together, we seek to achieve outstanding results that honor our shared values. We care deeply about helping our homebuyers achieve their dreams - about building thriving communities and empowering our team members to love what they do.
