Scott Tomhave brings an entrepreneurial-minded and servant leadership approach to his role as Vice President – Area Manager in Austin with more than 20 years of relevant professional experience combining both construction and real estate development. He thrives on bringing added value to clients and colleagues alike.
Scott’s “role up your sleeves” style was formed as a carpenter banging nails while in college at Texas A&M University. Following graduation, Scott moved to California where notably, he built the Big Rock Ranch project for Lucasfilm, Ltd. The high-finish Frank Lloyd Wright certified-design prairie-style addition to Skywalker Ranch which was built near the location where a famous scene was filmed that featured the “Ewoks” from the 1983 classic Return of the Jedi. He gained valuable experience working in multiple markets, including Medical, Office, Entertainment and High-Tech.
Scott returned home to Central Texas in 2006 to be closer to family. He used his construction management experience to begin a second career in real estate development focusing on medical related projects. In 2011, Scott started a privately held real estate investment, advisory and development firm in Austin. He also has held the position of Vice President – Division Manager at another large national general contractor.
“Building is a passion of mine,” Scott said. “I have been blessed to have experienced both sides of the business. Real estate development is where you create a new vision and excitement around a project and implement it. Construction is where you see the fruits of your labor.” Scott was recognized in 2014 by both Building Design + Construction and Engineering News Record as a leader in our industry with two prestigious “Under 40” awards.
Scott and his family live in Driftwood, TX, where he enjoys spending time with his wife and teenage children – watching his kids play sports, serving at church, volunteering, hunting, fishing, being outdoors and spending time working at his family ranch and Driftwood property.
