On Thursday, January 11, 2018, Chuck Fowke of Tampa, Florida was elected to serve as NAHB’s Third Vice President. FHBA is proud to have Chuck represent Florida’s building industry at the national level.
Fowke, a builder for almost 40 years, is owner and president of Homes by John C. Fowke, Inc. His dedication to the craft landed him accolades such as Builder of the Year in both 2006 and 2009. Chuck is a “hands on” builder and is in the trenches everyday dealing with building departments, building inspectors, sub-contractors or other industry related trades.
“Florida has many issues that are relatively unique for our state including hurricane related building code issues, wetland challenges and flood plain requirements,” states Greg Matovina, FHBA President. “Given the unique challenges that the home building industry faces in our State, having a member from Florida serve as NAHB Third Vice President provides a golden opportunity for our issues to be placed front and center for discussion and resolution at the national level.”
“Chuck has demonstrated the leadership and commitment to serve in the NAHB leadership to ensure that Florida’s concerns are well represented.”
Fowke is a past President of the Tampa Bay Builders Association and is a Life Director. Notably, he served as President of the FHBA, is a past NAHB State Representative and is currently serving as the Area 5 National Area Chairman and is an NAHB BUILD PAC Gold Key contributor.
