TAMPA, Fla. --- Lennar’s Central Florida Division, which builds homes in more than 40 communities in the Tampa Bay and Orlando regions, recently appointed veteran homebuilding executive Jim McCarthy to Land Acquisition Manager for the Tampa Bay area.

Mark Metheny, president of Lennar’s Central Florida Division, said McCarthy has more than 15 years of experience in land acquisition and development in the home building industry.  

McCarthy, who graduated from the University of South Florida, formerly served as vice president of land acquisition at both M/I Homes and KB Home.

Metheny said in his new role McCarthy will be focusing on acquiring raw land and developed homesites throughout the Tampa Bay area where Lennar builds new homes priced from $150,000 to more than $800,000 in everything from small infill tracts to large master planned communities.

“We are pleased to have an executive of Jim’s caliber join our land team.  With the advantages of his experience throughout Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco and Polk Counties, he will play a significant role in our continued growth in the Tampa Bay region,” said Metheny.
