 Congratulations Ed!

Ed Brady has been elected Chairman of the Board for the National Association of Home Builders for 2016. He is a home builder and developer from Bloomington, Illinois, and he is the first Illinoisan to hold the top post at NAHB since Robert Arquilla in 1977.

Ed is President of Brady Homes Illinois, one of the largest home building firms in central Illinois, which has developed 20 residential communities throughout the state, built more than 1,800 single-family homes and developed more than 2,000 single-family lots.

Ed served as President of HBAI in 2002, and has chaired many committees at NAHB over the past 15 years. NAHB held its elections at the Board Meeting held in connection with the International Builders Show the Week of January 20, 21, & 22, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

A reception in Ed’s honor was held Thursday night in the Verona Suite at the Westgate Hotel. Formerly the Las Vegas Hilton, the Verona Suite served as Elvis Presley’s quarters when performing at the Hilton.
