Davidson Communities is thrilled to announce that acclaimed building industry professional Kay Grimes has joined our team as Vice President of Operations.

With 21 years of experience in the homebuilding business, Grimes has earned recognition for her high ethical standards, professionalism and productivity. She was named Industry Professional of the Year in 2013 by the San Diego Building Industry Association (BIA) and was presented with the BIA’s Chairman’s Award for outstanding contribution to the industry in 2010 and 2014. Most recently she served as the co-chair of the 2018 ICON Awards, presented by the BIA to honor excellence and commitment of its membership.

“I’m very proud to welcome Kay to Davidson Communities, where her skills, industry relationships, and reputation for integrity are greatly valued as we embark on new neighborhoods throughout California,” said Bill Davidson, president of the 40-year old, privately held home building company. “There’s no challenge too daunting for Kay, who opened 13 model complexes for her previous employer in an 18-month time period in 2017-2018.”

Grimes’ record of achievement includes her recent honor as 2018 Volunteer of the Year for the San Diego/Desert chapter of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. Her long-time involvement there includes multiple terms on the board of trustees and as board president. Through her participation in the Team Challenge half-marathon and triathlon programs, she has raised over $100,000 for the organization.

Last year, Grimes was honored as the top fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity’s Woman Build program, and participated in the framing of 11 new homes in San Diego’s Logan Heights. 

Grimes’ first assignment at Davidson is to assist with the final phase at The Estates at San Elijo Hills, an elevated enclave featuring distinctive architecture and spectacular panoramic views of the ocean and neighboring backcountry. The Estates at San Elijo Hills is located at 956 Pearl Drive in the city of San Marcos. For more information, call 760-632-8400.
