Meet the Visionary Behind Newland Communities

 

Bob McLeod

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Bob is the founder and true visionary behind the growth and evolution of Newland Communities in becoming one of the largest privately held real estate developers in the US. Under Bob's leadership, Newland and its affiliates have developed, acquired, completed for its own account, and managed for third parties a combined total of more than 140 projects, including master-planned residential communities, mixed-use centers, urban skyscrapers, corporate headquarters, and industrial parks.

Bob has developed residential and urban mixed-use real estate for over 45 years. Prior to Newland, he was President and CEO of Genstar Land—USA (Newland's predecessor company) where he had complete responsibility for all residential and commercial development activities, including 20 master-planned communities in five states encompassing approximately 28,000 acres.

Bob is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley. He has served as an active member of Berkeley's Policy Advisory Board for the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics for the past 20 years. He has been a member of the Urban Land Institute since the early 1980s and serves on the Board of Governors of the ULI Foundation. Bob was named Real Estate Entrepreneur of the Year in the Greater San Diego Ernst & Young 2002 Entrepreneur of the Year competition, in 2011 was honored with the Hearthstone BUILDER Humanitarian Achievement Award, and in June 2013 was inducted into the California Homebuilding Foundation Hall of Fame.
