For the sixth episode of Zonda’s Inspirational Leadership with the Best in Home Building podcast series, principal Mollie Carmichael interviews Bert Selva, president and CEO of Shea Homes, No. 32 on the 2022 Builder 100.

As a child, Selva loved design and envisioned a career in the automotive industry. However, while pursuing his graduate degree and commuting nearly four hours a day, Selva desperately needed a job closer to home. A friend referred him for a project at Rancho Mission Viejo, an experience that not only opened a door to home building but reignited a childhood passion.

Tune in to Inspirational Leadership with the Best in Home Building to hear more about Selva, his full journey into home building, and who inspires him every day.
