Woodforest Hires Coverdell to Manage Construction of Montgomery County New Homes Site

CONROE, TX--(Marketwire - February 21, 2008) - Woodforest development, one of the best new places to live in Texas, has hired Everett Coverdell as construction/special projects manager.

A long-time veteran of master-planned community development, Coverdell will manage all field construction and work to preserve the forested landscape.

"As we bring the community closer to our first lot sales later this year, my top priority will be to deliver premier homesites on time and within budget," Coverdell said.

Coverdell worked for 21 years in a variety of positions within The Woodlands, most recently as manager of recreation facilities development for The Woodlands Development Company. More than 50 parks were built and 100 miles of trails introduced under Coverdell's guidance. In all, he managed more than $15 million in annual projects. At Woodforest, he joins another veteran of The Woodlands, Virgil Yoakum, who worked in senior management capacities for The Woodlands Development Company for more than 29 years.

Woodforest, a project of The Johnson Development Corporation, is a 3,000-acre master-planned community surrounding Woodforest Golf Club, one of the top-ranked daily-fee golf courses in the Houston area. Offering a broad array of housing choices targeted to lifestyle-oriented buyers, Woodforest is slated for more than 6,000 homes and a full complement of retail and commercial activity. Woodforest is four miles north of The Woodlands and four miles south of FM 2854. Convenient access just six miles west of Interstate 45 will be provided by Fish Creek Thoroughfare, the first new major north/south thoroughfare built in Montgomery County.
