Derrick Hughes

Sr. VP of Construction Operations

With over 20 years of experience in the construction industry, Derrick Hughes believes that if you work hard and treat people with kindness, everyone can be successful. Derrick strategically leads the construction operation teams in the AustinDallas, and Houston markets with an all-encompassing approach to the full life cycle management of each project. He believes that our vertically integrated business model allows us to be accountable and transparent within all departments to produce a better product.

Derrick has worked his way through many jobs in the industry, starting as a builder before being named as the first Master Builder for a national firm in which he was later promoted to Area Construction Manager. He has also been named a finalist for the Greater Houston Builders Association’s Builder of the Year award for two years. Derrick also has a bachelor’s degree in education, demonstrated daily by his motivational leadership style, and a minor in sports management. Due to his exemplary leadership, Derrick received the Outstanding Leader of the Quarter award in the 4th quarter of 2022.

When Derrick is not “building dreams” for people, he enjoys spending time with his wife of over 23 years, caring for two dogs, and raising goats for FFA with his two kids. If you ever want to spend some time in the great outdoors, reach out to Derrick, who loves to hunt, fish, and go camping.
