LandPlan Development Announcement (November 2017)
Dear Partners, Investors and Friends:
I am writing to tell you about some exciting LandPlan news. I am honored to announce that Dan Thomas has joined us as the President of LandPlan. Dan most recently left Bank of the Ozarks as the head of its renowned Real Estate Services Group and Vice Chairman of the Bank. One of the foremost construction lenders in the country, Dan generated approximately $9 billion in construction loans last year alone. He began his career as a real estate developer, is a licensed C.P.A. and attorney and spent the last 14 years in the banking industry. His background has enabled him to seamlessly take the helm of LandPlan and Dan is already steering us in many exciting directions as he reviews existing deals and evaluates new opportunities.
Dan and I have known and respected each other for many years. As a key lender for LandPlan projects since 2003, Dan knows our business well. He is not only my valued friend and business partner, most importantly, he is a Razorback fan! Dan’s arrival has allowed me to step up as Chairman of the Board so I can focus on the bigger picture and provide oversight and direction.
The entire LandPlan team is energized and eager to move forward as we begin this new chapter. Please feel free to call me or drop by and visit with us. I know you will enjoy meeting Dan and will understand the lasting value he brings to LandPlan.
With best wishes to all of you for a happy, healthy and prosperous conclusion to 2017 and with great optimism for the future,
