Roger Pollock, President, Buena Vista Custom Homes

Thursday, April 12, 2007 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Prior to working as president of Buena Vista Custom Homes, Roger worked for his father, Don Pollock, for four years at Northland Homes, Inc. At Northland Homes, he was in charge of all aspects of construction including supervising all job sites, overseeing the construction of hundreds of homes, developing a scheduling system and writing a construction manual that he still uses today. In 1990, Roger started RMP Properties and quickly became one of Oregon's leading builders. He grew RMP Properties from start-up to a $27 million dollar company in sales in 1997. Roger was Oregon's #1 homebuilder from 1995 to 1998. He was one of Builder Magazine's "National Giants" three years in a row. Also, the Portland Business Journal numbered him as one of the "Forty Under Forty" leaders in the community. In 1998, Roger sold the corporate assets of RMP Properties to D. R. Horton. Roger is a member of the Portland Home Builder's Association, actively involved in Young Entrepreneur's Organization, patron of the Portland Art Museum, assistant coach for Lake Oswego High School's Varsity Football team, and a mentor at St. Mary's Home for Boys.
