Haag joins Cook from Smith Douglas Homes, where since 2010 he had served as chief financial officer for the company’s home-building operations while overseeing the investments of multiple communities and thousands of home construction projects.

Along with 20 years of experience in the home-building and construction industry, Haag brings with him the knowledge and insight of how to produce quality, durable construction projects to the area at a reduced cost.
“Donovan is a seasoned financial executive with a strong background in the construction industry, who we believed is poised to help take us to the next level,” Keith Cook, president of real estate and co-owner of the company, said in a press release. “His hands-on leadership and collaboration is already making a huge impact on our ability to serve our staff, customers and vendors.”
