PRESIDENT, PORTRAIT HOMES

Becoming part of Century Group

Century Group is acquiring Portrait Homes, which will result in the formation of an industry-leading developer and builder of single-family and multi-family wood-frame homes.

Over the last 25 years, Portrait Homes has built and sold over 1,200 new single-family and multi-family homes into the Lower Mainland residential market, an achievement attributed to a well-managed organization with an unwavering belief in offering quality, beautiful designs, and unique signature features that stand the test of time. This is combined with a dedication to providing the most stellar customer experience in the industry.  Portrait has distinguished itself in the industry with a disciplined and sophisticated approach to project management, and over the years, has won an extremely impressive list of industry awards (see portraithomes.ca for more information).

For more than fifty years, Century Group has built places with walkable streets where people live, shop and work; and places connected to natural landscapes. Its condominiums, townhomes and mixed-use buildings are energy-smart and resource-efficient and are built to advance conservation and environmental sustainability. By focusing on lasting beauty, through exceptional architecture and design, its developments define neighbourhoods. Century’s flagship projects include 3 Civic Plaza at Surrey City Centre and now the upcoming Southlands project in Tsawwassen which will include 950 homes (see centurygroup.ca for more information).

As a key part of ensuring the initial and ongoing success of this transaction, we are seeking to hire a President, Portrait Homes. This role will lead the existing Portrait Homes operation and will also plan and manage its integration into Century Group, creating a wood-frame business that will combine both companies’ projects and grow from there.  The key objective is to retain and build on the reputations, resources and capabilities of both companies, covering all aspects of the wood-frame business, including self-performing construction. 

This is a great opportunity that will require a leader with exceptional people and organizational skills as well as broad experience in the wood-frame homebuilding sector. We need an individual who can instill an approach that is both disciplined and creative in managing projects all the way through design, procurement, construction and customer service. A deep understanding of the market and the ability to balance design with cost-effectiveness is key. We need a leader whose values truly embrace the importance of the customer experience and the appreciation of the contribution of each team member.

This is a rare opportunity to join two companies that are already very successful and respected, and be the focal point of creating and growing a new, larger and even better combined operation in the future.
