- HBA of Greater Cincinnati Honors First 50-Year Member
Posted August 5, 2016
Jim Brady, a legendary builder, and developer, was recognized yesterday by the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati (HBA) as its first 50-year National Association of Home Builders member.
Brady, a resident of Springdale, was responsible for many of the homes built in Forest Park, Green Hills, and other communities throughout Southwest Ohio. The New York City native and graduate of Harvard University arrived in Cincinnati (via Cleveland) in the early 1960s to work for the Warner-Kanter Company, one of the region’s most prominent builder/developer companies. He established several companies of his own over the 50-year span of his professional career.
He was extremely active in the HBA of Greater Cincinnati, serving as its president in 1970. The following year he was instrumental in the establishment of the HBA’s Charitable Foundation. He also served as president of the Ohio Home Builders Association in 1976 and as a director of the National Association of Home Builders.
The Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati, established in 1934, represents residential construction interests in Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, and Warren counties in southwest Ohio.
