A recent NAHB study identifies eight senior positions at home building companies that are often to nearly always filled by someone with experience in one or more of the construction trades. Average annual compensation (salary and bonus combined) for each of the eight positions is at least $80,000—at least $100,000, if the position is Head/Director or above of one of the company’s major functions.The data come from the Single-family Compensation Survey conducted by NAHB’s Economics & Housing Policy Group in July of 2017. The survey collected information from 308 single-family builders about full-time and part-time positions they have at their companies. When a company has one of the eight key positions full-time, the figure below shows how often it is filled by someone with hands-on experience in the construction trades.
