The Christopher Group Places CPO at Clayton Home Building Group®

MARYVILLE, TN – Clayton Home Building Group®, a national builder of off-site and site-built homes, has appointed Case McGee as their new Chief People Officer. This critical search was led and placed by Founder & CEO, Tom Christopher, and Managing Director’s Nat Schiffer, and Dr.Tobin Anselmi.

“It is a privilege to join Clayton Homes with its distinguished history of success. I am excited to put my experiences to work in support of the company’s growth plans,” says McGee. “The Christopher Group is highly effective in the executive HR search space. They understand the importance of being a great partner to both the client and prospective candidates. From having worked with TCG as a candidate, it’s no surprise that they are continually recognized for their performance and growth.”

McGee will be responsible for providing human capital leadership to align Clayton Home Building Group strategic priorities with the necessary people capabilities to deliver on the business objectives and continue to cultivate a team-member focused culture. As a member of the executive leadership team, Case will develop strategies and tactics across areas including DEIB, talent acquisition and management, succession planning, organizational development, training, performance management, and rewards and benefits.

“This was one of the more difficult and rewarding searches that we have completed in recent memory.,” said Nat Schiffer. “Clayton Homes has such an incredibly successful and defined culture. They are a legendary employment brand in the region and beyond.  They do not often recruit from the outside, especially for C-Suite roles, and therefore finding the right fit was 80%+ of the challenge in executing the search. Dr. Tobin Anselmi and I interviewed scores of candidates that were technically capable of doing the job – but finding the right chemical profile to successfully assimilate into the Clayton professional family was the real trick. This is another example of the Christopher Recruiting System’s ability to meet the needs of the most discerning clients where the stakes of a failed hire could not be greater!”

Mr. McGee has enjoyed a stellar 23+ year career at ADM where he worked in a variety of roles such as the Vice President of Talent and Organizational Effectiveness, Head of Organizational Change Management, and most recently VP of HR.
