Two chief executives —Ryland’s Larry Nicholson and Standard Pacific’ Scott Stowell – became fast friends after the latter was promoted to lead his company in 2012.

In its short time, CalAtlantic has already made a big impression in the home building industry, including being recognized as the 2016 Builder of the Year. Below, hear from Nicholson and Stowell on the merger and the new company’s future.
