"This recognition says a lot about the strength Roger brings to the financial discipline at PulteGroup," said Richard J. Dugas, Jr. chairman, president and CEO for PulteGroup, Inc. "Without the strong balance sheet and eye on our financial future that Roger consistently manages in his role, we would not have been in a place to merge with Centex last year. This honor is well deserved."

His current responsibilities include the Company's accounting, treasury, tax, information systems, and investor relations activities.
