HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KB Home (NYSE: KBH) today announced that Brett Dietz has been named as its Houston division president. In this role, Dietz is responsible for the Company’s homebuilding operations throughout the region, from land acquisition and construction, to sales and customer service.

Dietz is returning to the Houston market with more than twenty years of service at KB Home, including as the senior vice president of finance for its Houston division and most recently as president of its San Antonio division. He holds a BBA in Accounting from Texas A&M University.

"Brett brings to our Houston division an exceptional depth and breadth of experience executing on KB Home’s distinctive customer-centric business model,” said Larry Oglesby, KB Home’s Central region president. “We are excited to have him extend his outstanding career at KB Home leading the strategic growth of our Houston operations.”

KB Home has been building in the Houston region since 1998 and is one of Houston’s most active homebuilders, with 24 communities currently open for new home sales. With a number of recent land acquisitions, KB Home is continuing to expand its presence across the Houston market. Several single-family new home communities are planned to debut in late 2018 and early 2019, including Hillsdale Creek, Bryan Crossing and Sunset Grove.

“A combination of favorable economic factors and low housing inventory has made Houston a strong market for us, and these future communities will provide new homeownership opportunities for Houston-area buyers,” said Oglesby.
