Landsea Homes names Peter Beucke, Karen Dresher Corporate VPs
Home building company Landsea Homes has elevated two new corporate vice presidents from within its existing team. Peter Beucke has been appointed corporate vice president of innovation and sustainability, while Karen Dresher is the new corporate vice president of information technology. Mr. Beucke joined Landsea Homes in 2017, and most recently served as vice president of corporate homebuilding operations. In his new role, he will manage Landsea Homes’ sustainability initiatives, and lead the implementation of its Reme HALO® air purifier system. "During his tenure with Landsea Homes, Pete has continuously shown strong leadership and made significant contributions to further the company's innovation and sustainability mindset," said Landsea Homes president and chief operating officer Mike Forsum. "Combined with his years of homebuilding experience in our Arizona and Northern California divisions, he is perfectly suited to oversee this very important part of our organization." Ms. Dresher served as vice president of operations at Garrett Walker Homes, a role she maintained when it was acquired by Landsea Homes earlier in 2020. As VP of Information Technology, she will play a leading role in implementing home automation, sustainability and energy savings software and technology integrations. "Karen is a seasoned homebuilding executive who brings extensive experience in integrating software and technology to create new home efficiencies that are expected by today's homebuyers," said Mr. Forsum. "One of our highest priorities is to remain an industry leader in identifying and providing smart home technologies for our homebuyers, and Karen is the perfect person to oversee this important corporate priority."
