In 1956, the Clayton family began its journey when founder Jim Clayton sold his first home and launched the dream of making homeownership attainable for everyone across America. We’ve come a long way over the last 60 years. Our CEO since 1999, Kevin Clayton joined his father’s family business at the age of 7. After graduating from college and earning his MBA from the University of Tennessee, Kevin gained valuable experience at several other highly successful companies before returning to Clayton, where he has promoted a servant leadership style to guide various company initiatives over the years. Kevin has continued his family’s commitment to providing quality, attainable housing, while constantly improving the experience for both Clayton team members and customers. Clayton is now one of the nation’s leading homebuilders in site-built and off-site built homes.
What began as just one location has grown to over 350 home centers offering a variety of housing options to fit families’ needs. Clayton now builds and sells traditional site-built homes and off-site built homes – including manufactured homes, modular homes, CrossMod™ homes, Designer Cottages and PMRVs.
