Saskatoon, SK (June 30, 2020) >> The Saskatoon & Region Home Builders’ Association elected its new Executive earlier this month and welcomed Andrew Williams of North Prairie Developments as its Chair for a two-year term, succeeding from Cam Skoropat of Lexis Homes.

“I am thrilled to step up as Chair of the Association during such a time of momentum for our professional association and work towards continued growth for our members,” commented Williams. “I intend to continue on our recent but very important path of continuing conversations with all levels of government, advocating for policy directions that will benefit growth, a competitive offering in our region and a healthy housing continuum which includes a sharp focus on affordability.”

Williams has been on the Association Board for seven years and is highly experienced in the industry, in business and knowledgeable of not only of the regional market, but the North American landscape.

He leads annual excursions to large markets to visit new projects and research product types, land uses, sales processes, and construction techniques.

“I am thrilled to have the chance to serve under Andrew’s leadership,” comments Chris Guérette, CEO of the Association. “This is an election year and we have no shortage of housing files hitting our city council’s table. We have a Board and Executive that has a significant amount of experience and credibility.”
