CEO Lennar Corporation

Stuart A. Miller serves as the CEO of Lennar Corporation, one of the nation’s leading homebuilders.
Miller has held the CEO title since 1997, when he took over for his father, Leonard, who co-founded the company in the 1950s.
Under Miller’s leadership, Lennar has become the go-to developer for move-up and retirement homes in areas that cater to urban, golf course, active adult and suburban communities across an 18-state footprint. Among the notable projects Lennar has undertaken during Miller’s tenure is Coto de Caza, California, in Orange County, which many consider Lennar’s flagship community. Coto de Caza has some 4,000 homes, is situated on 5,000 acres, and has become one of the most sought-after residential locations in the nation.
Miller previously served as Chairman of the Board of LNR Property Corp. until its sale in February 2005.
Beyond his work with Lennar, Miller is active on numerous professional boards and committees. He is past chairman of the Joint Center for Housing Studies Policy Advisory Board at Harvard University. He is the chairman elect of the University of Miami’s Board of Trustees, and serves on its Executive Committee. And, in March 2000, Stuart joined the Board of Directors of Builder Homesite, Inc., a consortium of homebuilders nationwide that represented $46 billion in gross revenue for 2001, and built more than 203,000 homes in 340 communities across the continental U.S.
Miller’s work in the community is just as distinguished. He has served as a member of the board of Alonzo Mourning Charities, the board of the Overtown Youth Center and was chairman of the 2013 Dolphins Cycling Challenge, which benefitted the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Miller joined Lennar in 1982 after graduating from the University of Miami School of Law. He received his undergraduate degree from Harvard University.
