President and Chief Executive Officer, Taylor Morrison Home Corporation
Sheryl Palmer is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Taylor Morrison Home Corporation, a leading national homebuilder and developer based in Scottsdale, Arizona. Since 2007, Ms. Palmer has overseen a highly experienced leadership team in several key national homebuilding markets. With more than 25 years of hands-on building experience, including leadership in land acquisition, sales and marketing, development and operations management, Ms. Palmer has been able to lead Taylor Morrison into the top ranks of American’s largest public homebuilders, following the company’s IPO in 2013.
Currently, Ms. Palmer is implementing a new business strategy focused on expanding the company’s United States footprint. As part this initiative, Taylor Morrison sold its Canadian business to Mattamy Homes in late 2014. In 2015, Taylor Morrison successfully acquired JEH Homes in Atlanta, Georgia and the Chicago, Charlotte and Raleigh divisions of Orleans homes, marking the company’s entrance into four new major metropolitan markets. Earlier this year, Taylor Morrison also acquired Acadia Homes another homebuilder in Atlanta.
Ms. Palmer has spent most of her career in the Arizona, California and Nevada real estate markets. Prior to Taylor Morrison, Ms. Palmer was a division president at Blackhawk Corporation, a builder of active adult communities based in northern California. In addition, she served with Pulte Homes for more than five years, beginning in the Phoenix market and ultimately serving as Nevada area president, supervising all aspects of operations for its Del Webb and Pulte communities. Ms. Palmer and her husband split their time between Scottsdale and Las Vegas. When she’s not working or travelling between Taylor Morrison’s divisions, she loves spending time with her three children and grandchildren.
