Tucson, AZ — Chad Williams, Chief Operating Officer at Pepper Viner Homes, has been honored as one of the exceptional 40 Under 40 building executives by Professional Builder Magazine.  The trade magazine focuses on industry news and trends, product innovations, builders and best practices for U.S. home building.  “It is an honor for Chad and for Pepper Viner Homes to be recognized with this accolade,” said Bill Viner, CEO.

Williams learned to drive a tractor on his family farm in Georgia before he learned construction in the family homebuilding company.  “I was driving a tractor at 8 years of age, but I learned home building from the ground up from my father,” Williams said.  He meant literally because his first jobs were picking up trash and laying sod on his father’s construction sites.

Working during the worst housing market in recent years during the past recession was a challenge, but Williams said, “With the downturn, I was able to wear many hats in various departments.  The experience has made me more knowledgeable and better prepared to handle every aspect of building a client’s home.”

“I am proud to work for Pepper Viner Homes and be a part of their remarkable team.  Pepper Viner Homes has been the Southern Arizona Homebuilder of the Year five times.  My goal is make sure our company remains a leader in the field.  We have pioneered affordable green building and established a firm foundation in building science.  I intend to grow with our company,” Williams concluded.
