Matt McCurrach is a second generation developer-builder, who took over the reins of the family business in 2014. Homex Development Corporation was founded by his father Peter, who has been a CHBA Central Interior member for over 50 years. Their business consists of different divisions including land acquisition, development, civil works, multi-family and single family housing. Matt's ability to understand all sides of the development business started as a teenager with a broom in hand sweeping out homes under construction. Soon after, he exchanged the broom for a shovel while installing water mains in new subdivisions. In 2005, he completed his carpentry apprenticeship and received his Red Seal certification. From there he worked his way up through every aspect of the building business.
For multiple years Matt has lent his business expertise and creative thinking to the Canadian Home Builders' Association at the local, provincial and national levels. In 2012, CHBA Interior faced financial losses for the first time in years. Matt helped reorganize the largest annual fundraising project called the "CHBA CI Training House". Matt helped remold the culture of staff and members, fostering a positive attitude of "members supporting members". Under his leadership as CHBA Central Interior President from 2013 to 2016, membership grew from 150 to 250 members and sits on solid financial ground. He has been a leading member of the CHBA CI's Advocacy Committee, developing a positive relations hip with the City of Kamloops.
Sitting on the CHBA BC Board since 2011, Matt has been part of a dynamic growth with the association. Helped for the Government Relations Committee that quickly gained traction and the attention of the provincial government. Meetings with key ministers are now routine for CHBA BC.
In 2018 Matt served as CHBA BC President and his term coincided with a newly elected NDP government and the Speculation Tax. Under his stewardship trust was gained with the government and hard work paid of as concessions were made with the challenging tax. In 2019 he carried on the CHBA BC, chairing the Government Relations Committee.
Matt is humbled to have been elected the 2nd Vice President of CHBA National in 2021. Sitting as a Presidential Appointee on the CHBA National Executive prior to that was a privilege and to give back further at the national level in the presidential stream representing members from across the country is a tremendous honour.
