Lapinsky will also be managing The Reserve at Crossing Creek in Bradenton, a new Centex community opening for sales this summer.
A Gainesville native, Lapinsky holds a degree in economics from the University of Florida and is currently working on his MBA at University of South Florida in St. Petersburg. He has lived in Florida 28 years.
“We expect Blake to continue his superlative career and play a major role in the growth and development of our south Florida division,” Mairn said.
