Drees Homes has promoted Mark Paulsen to Jacksonville Division president.

In his new role, Paulsen will oversee all aspects of Drees’ Jacksonville Division operations, including sales, administration, production, warranty, product design, land acquisition and development. Prior to this appointment, he serves as Midwest region production manager for the company.

Mitchell, Kentucky.

“Mark was instrumental in helping to bring the Drees culture and philosophies to this new Drees division, and I am confident that he will continue to serve as a dedicated leader to the Jacksonville division,” Southeast Region President David Hausfield said. “Over the course of his career, I have been impressed with Mark’s depth of knowledge, desire to succeed, passion for the industry and his dedication to The Drees Company.”

Paulsen graduated from Texas Tech University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.

“I’m very excited to return to Jacksonville as division president,” Paulsen said, “and continue the recent success Drees has achieved here.”
