David Clough Elected 2007 President of Greater Atlanta HBA

David Clough has been named President of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association.  Founder of Waterford Homes, Clough has been in the residential construction business for 32 years.

“Service will be the theme of my year at the helm of the Home Builders’ Association – service to our members, to our industry and to our customers, today’s home owners,” Clough said. “I’m excited about the opportunity to lead and serve the nation’s top builders and my goal is to continue to build on the power, influence and professionalism of our industry that has flourished under (2006 President) Doug Cotter’s leadership last year.”

A graduate of Princeton University in 1975, Clough immediately entered the homebuilding business, learning from the ground up as he worked for several national home builders. He founded Waterford Homes in 1991. Waterford Homes is a major builder in the Atlanta housing market, closing 2100 homes since the creation of the company in 1991.

The award-winning builder has dedicated itself to providing a superior blend of architectural design, quality craftsmanship and quality of life that not only meets, but exceeds the expectations of its home buyers. Additionally, the company backs its fine workmanship with the best warranties available in the market today.

“Today's homebuyers are knowledgeable, sophisticated and have high expectations when it comes to the purchase of a new home,” Clough said. “They demand quality, service, great lifestyle and great value from their builder. This is the investment of a lifetime and homebuyers need to have confidence that they have made the right choice. It is incumbent upon the leadership of our industry to understand the expectations of our customers and to strive to exceed them. That’s what professionalism is all about.”

Waterford Homes has built a number of communities across metro Atlanta ranging in price from the high $200,000s to more than $1million in Cobb, Forsyth, Gwinnett, North Fulton, Cherokee and DeKalb.

It will be an honor to serve and lead this organization for the next year.”
