President of Astoria Homes
It took a major housing slowdown to bring Tom McCormick to Las Vegas, and now the president of Astoria Homes knows what it's like to cope with one when he's in charge.
The 46-year-old McCormick
has lived in Las Vegas for 16 years and has been part of the community's housing boom.
Growing up in Southern California, McCormick worked for Dunmore Homes in Sacramento when a military base closing, job loss and economic slump hurt the industry and prompted his departure from the company and into a role as a consultant.
McCormick came to Las Vegas to work for Pageantry Homes as vice president of finance before moving to Astoria Homes, a private builder he co-founded in 1995.
"My goal and life's ambition was to be a homebuilder," McCormick
wife, Cristen, have four children.
