Elly has no clue how bad the US operations is destroying his company. how many home builders are successfully closing less than a 1000 units per year in 8 markets, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix,Atlanta, Carolina's, Austin. Ashton Woods is trying to give the illusion of a growing company that is worthy of wall street investors. The Great Gulf group and the Reisman brothers business decision to name Ken Balogh (39 years old) as the new CEO of US home building operations is a tragic mistake. Ashton Woods is currently playing a smoke and mirrors game, when in reality this company is so much closer to shutting the doors than it was 1/12 year ago. Elly you invested good money at a BAD operation. You should investigate the Campbell survey and survey your loyal employees that helped you become a very successful family "loyal employees that just want to succeed. Your money will not infuse a culture of calculated turn over. Just do an audit of the senior level management in each division. Why would Tom Krobot have to run a division every other year. Now you have the 39 year old wonder boy that you can ultimately credit your loss of the 10 million dollar infusion.
