Va. Beach honors Ramon W. Breeden Jr.
Mayor Bobby Dyer proclaimed day in honor of real estate mogul
Virginia Beach Mayor Bobby Dyer proclaimed Aug. 9, 2022, as Ramon W. Breeden Jr. Day, in honor of the real estate mogul.
Since starting The Breeden Co. in 1961 out of the trunk of his Pontiac convertible and the back room of a grocery store, Breeden has led his company to be a vertically integrated real estate development firm with a portfolio of more than 25,000 apartments and 2 million square feet of retail and office space.
Breeden stepped down from his roles as president and CEO in January, but remains the company’s chairman of the board. Timothy Faulkner, then the company’s chief operating officer, succeeded him.
Breeden has served on The University of Virginia’s McIntire Foundation board, as well as boards for the Tidewater Builders Association, Hampton Roads Military and Federal Facilities Alliance, and Virginia Beach Education Foundation.
