Vandercook joins KB Home with more than 30 years of residential
construction experience with national builders, including serving as
president of the Charlotte division for KB Home. Vandercook holds a
Bachelor of Science degree in Building Construction from the University
"We are very pleased to welcome back Fred to KB Home as head of our
Tampa team, and are confident that his experience and demonstrated
leadership will be a great asset to our business, as we continue to
focus on growth and open several new communities in the region," said
Vince DePorre, Southeast regional president for KB Home.
KB Home has been building in the Tampa and Southwest Florida region
since 2002 and has 10 communities currently open for new home sales.
Recent land acquisitions will allow KB Home to continue to expand its
regional presence, with several new home communities expected to debut
in 2018. These include Northgate, a 200-homesite community located in
Gibsonton; West Lake Reserve, a 42-homesite community located in North
Tampa; and Freedom Ridge, a 91-homesite community located in Seffner.
Both the West Lake Reserve and Freedom Ridge communities are expected to
open in the coming months, while the Northgate models opened earlier
"A combination of favorable economic factors and low inventory has made
Tampa a strong homebuilding market," DePorre continued. "These future
communities will provide new homeownership opportunities for Tampa
residents in 2018 and beyond."
