CBIA Mourns the Loss of Horace Hogan II; Memorial Service Announced

It is with a very heavy heart that CBIA announces the passing of Horace Hogan II, a veteran California homebuilder and incredible leader throughout the CBIA federation and its affiliates. Hogan died Monday, February 6 after a lengthy battle with cancer.

"Without Horace’s leadership and good nature, CBIA wouldn’t be where it is today,” said Mike Winn, CBIA’s President and CEO. “He personally steered this association through a major restructuring during this Great Recession and did so with great tact, dignity and humor. We feel incredibly lucky to have been a prime recipient of his strong skills and gregarious personality.”

At his death, Hogan was a principal with LandArc Group, a private land development company of planned residential and mixed-use communities based in Carlsbad. He previously was president and chief executive officer for Brehm Communities in San Diego, and before that was division president for Ryland Homes, a cofounder of Pacific Gateway Homes in Aliso Viejo, and was vice president of the Mission Viejo Company. In all, he had more than 30 years of executive leadership experience in the homebuilding industry.

Hogan was a stalwart supporter of the building industry in California and served on numerous boards and committees at the local, state and national levels. He served as chairman of the California Building Industry Association in 2009 and served as chairman of PCBC, the West’s largest industry tradeshow and conference, in 2010 and 2011. At the local level, Hogan served as chairman of the Building Industry Association of San Diego in 2006 and also served on numerous BIA committees and task forces. At the national level, he was the State Representative and served as a member of the Executive Committee for the National Association of Home Builders where he participated in briefings of industry credit market conditions with Congress, the White House, the Federal Reserve, FDIC, and OTS. One consequence of these efforts was the First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit at both the State and Federal levels.

As a result of his many contributions to the community and his industry, Hogan was inducted into the San Diego BIA Hall of Fame and California Homebuilding Foundation Hall of Fame in 2010.

Hogan earned a master’s degree in city and regional planning from Harvard University and a bachelor’s degree in architecture from the University of California, Berkeley.

He is survived by his wife, Kim, and children Jake and Savannah.
