Brent McCaffrey, president of McCaffrey Homes, has been named to a two-year term as Chair of the Building Industry Association (BIA) of Fresno and Madera Counties.
Established in 1947, the BIA of Fresno/Madera Counties is affiliated with the statewide California Building Industry Association and the National Association of Home Builders. Members of the BIA include leading home builders, developers, trade contractors and building material suppliers.
"Brent will continue the tradition of strong leadership for the Building Industry Association," said Mike Prandini, Chief Executive Officer of the BIA of Fresno/Madera Counties.
The BIA's mission is to cooperate with all branches of government – and trade, civic and veteran organizations – to defend housing affordability and economic competitiveness in the area.
"As president of McCaffrey Homes, Brent knows the challenges facing the building industry," Prandini added. "He will work to achieve the common goals of the BIA. Through Brent's diligent efforts, we know that he will be an effective advocate for the industry and our members."
"It's an honor to serve the building industry and homeowners in my hometown," said Brent McCaffrey. "Housing is at the center of the American Dream. The BIA and its members play a vital role in helping our area's residents realize that dream.'
McCaffrey Homes is a leading, third-generation family home builder in California's Central San Joaquin Valley. Brent McCaffrey is the third member of his family to serve the area's BIA as a volunteer leader.
Brent's father, Robert McCaffrey, served as Chair of the BIA in 2004 and 2005. Brent's grandfather, John Bonadelle—a legendary Fresno-area developer and builder—was also deeply involved with the organization.
"For nearly 70 years, our local BIA has been a key part of the fabric of Fresno and Madera Counties," McCaffrey said. "It's a privilege to lead this vital organization and an honor to continue our family's decades of service to the industry and to our local area."
McCaffrey also serves on the Community Development Council of the Urban Land Institute. In May 2014, he co-founded the McCaffrey-Knowlton Scholarship in City Planning at Fresno State, one of several philanthropic causes that McCaffrey Homes supports.
