Todd Palmaer has served in leadership positions at Standard Pacific Homes, Lennar Homes, and Greystone Homes. In his next act, StanPac's onetime regional president of its Northern California, Texas, and Colorado regions will go to RSI Communities, an affiliate of RSI Holding, and serve as its president and CEO.

The 30-year industry veteran will be responsible for growing RSI Communities' regional and national footprint. Here's more from the RSI release:

Along with acquiring land to develop its own communities, RSI is also partnering with landowners and will build homes for first-time home buyers as well as single family home rental communities. The company's unique approach to homebuilding offers high-quality, energy-efficient homes built faster and more affordably than traditional new home construction.

"Todd Palmaer is widely acknowledged in the home building industry as a strong and effective leader. His experience and expertise, coupled with the timing of his appointment, will help drive RSI Communities' growth initiatives," said Ronald M. Simon, founder and chairman of RSI Holding LLC.
