More than 200 people nationwide were nominated for the award which recognizes rising stars in the building industry. The winners were chosen by the magazine editors for career achievement and service to their profession and community.
McCaffrey, 39, graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in urban planning and development but credits some of his success in business to his work on the collegiate football field. He earned the John Dye Memorial Award as the Most Valuable Offensive Lineman.
Under McCaffrey’s leadership, the homebuilding company has developed dozens of innovative neighborhoods including the coming 1,600-acre master-planned community in Madera called Tesoro Viejo. Last year, the development received an Outstanding Planning Award in Innovation in Green Community Planning from the Central Section of the American Planning Association California.
McCaffrey serves as board chairman of the Building Industry Association of Fresno and Madera Counties. In 2014, he co-founded the McCaffrey Knowlton Scholarship in city planning at Fresno State to help future planners create sustainable communities.
“On behalf of the entire team at McCaffrey Homes, I’m honored and humbled to accept this award,” McCaffrey said in a news release. “As the third generation of a family who has devoted their lives to building homes and communities in Fresno and Madera counties, this recognition by Professional Builder is especially rewarding.”
