Houston, Texas, April 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Empire Communities, one of North America’s largest privately held homebuilders, is pleased to announce the appointment of Terry Shuffler as new Division President in Central Texas.
Having spent over 25 years of his career in the homebuilding industry, Terry has an intimate knowledge of all facets of the business with roles in his early years as Construction Manager, Builder and Director of Production.

Previously, for almost 5 years, he led the start-up of Trendmaker’s Austin division, as VP General Manager.
