Henry Walker Homes Named New Business of the Year

Henry Walker Homes was recognized as the New Business of the Year by the Davis Chamber of Commerce at its annual awards banquet on January 21, 2011 in Layton, Utah.

The New Business of the Year award recognizes businesses operating for three years or less and which demonstrate excellence in business, service to the community and chamber involvement. Judges focused on company growth, business vision and outlook for the future.

Jim Smith, CEO of the Davis Chamber of Commerce noted that the construction company is the fastest growing homebuilder in Utah and an inspiration of hope and optimism in today’s economy. “With construction starting in the summer of 2010, Henry Walker Homes demonstrated unparalleled success and pulled enough construction permits to rank among the top five homebuilders in Utah during the third and fourth quarters,” he said.

Henry Walker Homes was also honored for its commitment to giving back to the community.  During its first year of operation, the company donated to or volunteered with many charitable, youth and sports programs. In addition, the company has helped underprivileged families in employee neighborhoods, and encourage youth be involved in constructive after school activities.
