NAHB Podcast: Jim Tobin Celebrates One Year as CEO

Contact: Reaganne Hansford

On the latest episode of NAHB’s podcast, Housing Developments, Jim Tobin reflects on his first year as CEO with COO Paul Lopez while on the road — this week, in Idaho, along with NAHB Chairman Carl Harris, NAHB Chief Economist Dr. Robert Dietz and NAHB Chief Lobbyist Lake Coulson.

“It’s been quite a ride,” Tobin shared. “It’s been interesting because I’m not a newbie to NAHB — I’ve been here for over 20 years — but in the new role, it’s been really fun. It’s been intensely gratifying for me to travel around the country and start moving the association forward.”

Bright spots have included the strategic plan and setting the direction for the Federation, and the renewed energy among the membership and NAHB staff following some of the pivotal changes from this past year. Membership and implement of the strategic plan will be continued focuses going forward, as well as advocacy efforts during an election year.

“Just these next few months politically and what we deal with at the national level from a policy and legislative perspective are really going to be important and really set us up or set us back for the next few years,” Tobin stated.
