PulteGroup, Inc (Pulte Homes) is a homebuilding company founded in 1950 by Bill Pulte in Oakland County, Michigan. It is now based in Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia.


In 2009, the company, then known as Pulte Homes Inc., bought rival Centex — creating the nation's largest homebuilding company — in a stock transaction worth $3.1 billion, including $1.8 billion of debt. [1] Pulte completed the acquisition of Centex February 23, 2010.[2][3]

In June 2013, Pulte announced it would move its headquarters to Buckhead, Atlanta, citing a better economic climate outside Metro Atlanta.[4]

In September 2016, Ryan Marshall was appointed CEO, replacing Richard J. Dugas Jr, who will be the executive chairman of the board through 2017.[5][6]
