Arlington-based homebuilder D.R. Horton has named Dr. Ben Carson, who was HUD secretary under former President Donald Trump, to its board of directors.

Carson’s appointment, effective Tuesday, expands the board to seven directors. D.R. Horton has been the nation’s largest homebuilder by volume since 2002.

Carson, a neurosurgeon before entering politics as a Republican presidential candidate, served as secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development from 2017 to this year. At HUD, he’s credited with leading a collaboration of eight federal agencies to establish the White House Council on Eliminating Regulatory Barriers to Affordable Housing.

“The company will benefit greatly from Ben’s intellect, life experiences and leadership skills, including his recent experience as HUD secretary,” board chairman Donald R. Horton said in a statement. “Ben has been actively involved in programs directly related to U.S. housing, including homebuyer education and the need for affordable housing to improve the quality of life for families in America.”

The company’s board members were paid cash and stock awards in fiscal 2020 that ranged from $155,304 to $822,659 based on meeting attendance, committee responsibilities and other factors, according to a regulatory filing.

D.R. Horton has operations in 90 markets in 29 states and closed on 71,168 homes in 2020. Its brand portfolio ranges from $150,000 to over $1 million.
