The Johnson Development Corp. has promoted Steve Sams to general manager of its newest development, Jordan Ranch.
Sams joined the company in 2012 as development manager of Cross Creek Ranch, a 3,200-community in Fulshear, and was most recently senior project manager at the development. In that role, he directed overall development, marketing and sales of the community, representing the company to builders, government agencies, public officials and homeowner associations.
In his new position, Sams will be responsible for developing Jordan Ranch, a 1,350-acre community in Fulshear. Crews broke ground in Jordan Ranch Oct. 20.
“It is exciting to build this community from the ground up and watch it evolve from rice fields into a place that thousands of people will call home, a place that is also one of the Houston area’s fastest-growing corridors,” Sams said.
Home sales in Jordan Ranch are expected to begin in the first quarter of 2016, with designs priced from the $290,000s.
Prior to joining The Johnson Development Corp., Sams accrued extensive land development experience with both a nationally recognized homebuilder and a local municipal engineering firm.
A licensed engineer in the state of Texas, Sams holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Pittsburgh. He and wife Julie have two daughters.
