The HBA Board of Directors is proud to introduce two new builder board members. John Marion was appointed to the HBA Board of Directors in May and John Doran was appointed to the Board in June.

Marion’s background, including his years of service on the Springfield Fire Department, volunteering to build a St. Jude Dream Home, participating in the Extreme Makeover Home Edition in Joplin and his thirst for knowledge combine together to make him a valuable addition to the HBA Board of Directors. In Marion’s own words, “We have chosen this community as the place to call home for our children, and we find great pleasure in providing that opportunity for other families as well.”

Since 1954, Doran Homes has laid the foundation for numerous homes and subdivisions in Springfield, Missouri and the surrounding area – all known for outstanding quality and livability. Doran Homes believes the relationship between builder and homeowner should be open and accommodating. Second-generation owner and president, John Doran, continues the philosophy and process that began with his father, Gerry Doran, and takes great pride in the relationships he has cultivated.
