2005 Presidential Award - Greater Atlanta HBA

The Presidential Award is the only Greater Atlanta Home Builder Association honor presented at the discretion of the HBA President and is not necessarily given each year.  It recognizes an individual whose commitment, dedication and leadership have made a significant impact on a specific program or project within the HBA and the industry.  

The 2005 Presidentail Award winner is David Clough.  

Clough, owner and principal of Waterford Homes, was born in Baltimore and graduated from Princeton University.  He first went to work for a national homebuilding company, cleaning up houses under construction.  A strong work ethic earned him numerous promotions.  He spent several years managing large building organizations before founding Waterford Homes in 1991.  

Today, Waterford Homse builds approximately 200 homes each year in prices ranging from $180,000 to $1 million, in locations throughout Atlanta.  David's philosophy is one of a team approach, and he credits his dedicated staff of professionals for the company's success.

Applying his keen business sense and leadership skills, Clough is first Vice President of the HBA, sits on the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors and serves as Vice President of the Housing Institute.  In addition, Clough represents Atlanta's housing industry at the state and national level.  He is a member of the Home Builders Association of Georgia and the National Association of Home Builders Board of Directors.

A supporter of the HBA's charitable arm, Clough is credited with the success of HomeAid Atlanta's first motorcycle raffle fund-raiser.  

"During my term as president, David was a tremendous asset and resource to me.  He continuously provided thoughtful and solid advice with only the best interest of our association and industry in mind," says Chris Willis, 2004-05 HBA President.  "David has made many significant contributions to our industry, and I am grateful for his support and involvement."

 David is a generous and kind man, known for putting interest of others before his. He is a decidated father of three grown children.  His son Drew works for an investment firm in New York City; his son Jeff attends Thomas Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia.  His daughter Lindsay attends Pomona College in Clarement, CA.
