nahb chairman

Randy Noel, a home builder from the Greater New Orleans area, was voted in as the National Home Builders Association’s (NAHB) 2018 Chairman at the International Builders’ Show in Orlando last week.

Noel is the founder of Reve, Inc., a custom home building company that has created more than 1,000 homes in the Greater New Orleans area since 1985. Prior to becoming NAHB Chairman, Noel has been an active member of the NAHB at the local, state and national levels. On the state and local levels, Noel has been the president of the Home Builders Association of Greater New Orleans, president of the state Association of Louisiana, HBA of Greater New Orleans’ Builder of the Year in 1997 and a member of the Louisiana Builders Hall of Fame since 2008.

At the national level, Noel has held seats on the NAHB Resolutions Committee, the Housing Finance committee, the State and Local Government Affairs Committee, Legal Action Committee and the Budget Committee, among others. He was the state representative from Louisiana in 2009 and was the National Area Chair Moderator in 2012. He is a member of the NAHB Executive Board, a senior life director and has served on the NAHB Board of Directors for more than 20 years.

As an accomplished NAHB member, Noel has helped craft statewide code law and given counsel during the creation of the Louisiana State Unified Code Council.

His priorities for his role as NAHB chairman include strengthening the NAHB’s membership and its advocacy on behalf of its members. “This year, we will work with policymakers to reduce burdensome regulations that are holding back a more robust housing recovery and urge Congress to make comprehensive housing finance reform a top priority. We will also seek to build our membership and assure that NAHB remains the preeminent voice for housing on Capitol Hill,” he said.
