Huntsville, Ala.—based Davidson Homes announced the hiring of Greg Duriez as regional president and Lindsey Tapscott as director of marketing. The hirings come with the regional builder’s rapid expansion in the Southeast market, with new homes in both Nashville, Tenn., and Raleigh, N.C.

“As we continue to grow, we need a solid team in place to expertly guide our strategy and operations,” says Adam Davidson, president and CEO of Davidson Homes, in a press release. “Greg and Lindsey both bring excellent experience to their respective roles. Our company has big goals, and we’re lucky to have these two on our team to help us achieve them.”

Duriez brings almost 30 years of experience in the industry to the company. Most recently, he served as the Atlanta division president for Century Communities, but he has also worked for Pulte Homes, HVR, Ryan Homes, and KB Home. As the regional president, Duriez will oversee all ongoing operations in Alabama, North Carolina, and Tennessee and lead the charge for expansion into additional Southeast markets.

Tapscott joins Davidson Homes with 10 years of sales and marketing experience. Before Davidson, she worked with the Fatback Pig Project, a project to help re-employ Alabama farmers. She has developed sales and marketing strategies for such organizations as Capstone Bank (now SmartBank), Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q/Taziki’s Café, and Apple Lane Farms. Tapscott will develop, manage, and execute the company’s marketing strategies and lead the new community launch process.
