Ms. Escobar is preceded in the role of president by Jimmy Timmons, who in June announced his retirement, effective today. Mr. Timmons held the position of president since 2005 and has been associated with the Lennar Family of Companies for over 25 years. As president, Mr. Timmons grew Eagle Home Mortgage in many ways, most significantly in terms of geographic footprint, builder capture rate, revenue and profitability. John Badostain, Executive Vice President of the Eagle Home Mortgage Retail Channel, has also retired. Mr. Badostain joined the company in 2010 and led all aspects of retail sales and operations. “Many of our leaders have been with our company for the majority of their careers. I believe this speaks volumes about our company, our culture and our collective success,” said Mr. Gross. “I thank Mr. Timmons and Mr. Badostain for their professionalism and sound leadership and wish them well in their retirement.”
