Warmington Residential, which is part of the Warmington group of companies, has a new President and Chief Operating Officer (COO) as of January 1, 2016. Previously serving as Executive Vice President and President of the Southern California and Northern California divisions, Matt Tingler’s leadership role has expanded as he has assumed principal oversight of Warmington Residential’s operations and divisions in California and Nevada.
As President, Tingler takes over for Jim Warmington Jr., fourth-generation leader of the privately held organization and its current Chief Executive Officer (CEO). As CEO, Jim Warmington Jr., will continue to oversee the management and executive responsibilities of the Warmington group companies, which includes Warmington Residential, Warmington Properties, Inc., Chateau Interiors & Design, Studio Chateau and Stirling Financial.
In announcing the appointment, Jim Warmington Jr. said, “Matt has helped build the Southern California team and increase our business as Executive Vice President since 2007. His ability to manage the details of our California operations, ensure our communities and homes are innovative, expertly designed and crafted, and geared for our markets has been impressive. His years with the company in many diverse roles make him uniquely qualified to oversee Warmington Residential as President and COO and his trusted leadership can be counted on to guide us going forward.”
Tingler joined Warmington nearly 25 years ago after graduating from Stanford University with a degree in economics. During his tenure he's held many top posts including Executive Vice President, and President of the Southern California and Northern California divisions. He also has served as President of the San Diego and Inland Empire divisions before they were consolidated into a single Southern California Division. He has further contributed his talents to the land acquisition, project management and development, field construction, customer service and property management efforts.
“It is truly an honor to lead and be entrusted with Warmington’s home building operations,” Tingler said of his promotion to President and COO. “I have such great respect for this company and its team members and values. Warmington is like a family to me and I will work extremely hard to protect its tradition of excellence and promote the growth and prosperity of the business.”
He emphasized the strength of the current team and noted that the division leadership in all three regions is comprised of a smart and committed group of seasoned professionals.
“The current team we have in place is truly top-notch and will be an integral part of the company’s ongoing success. I will rely on these individuals to achieve the company’s goals in the months and years ahead.”
