BUILD-PAC at the President’s Circle level and to craft a new three-year strategic plan, among other priorities.

Personally, Embler got his start in the home building industry working part-time construction jobs in high school and as a student at UNC-Charlotte. In 1994, soon after he graduated college, William Niblock of Niblock Homes hired Embler. William and his brother Marc have been mentors to Embler throughout his career at Niblock Homes, where Embler has spent the past 23 years of his career.

Embler first became acquainted with NCHBA in 2003, when he joined the Cabarrus County BIA. He became a local board member and then served as the local president three times: in 2006, then again in 2009 and 2010. Through his tenures as president, Embler saw the highs and very real lows of the industry, and he learned many lessons from those experiences.

“We’ve come a long way as an industry in the past several years,” Embler said. “It’s time now to gear up for what’s next and start charting our path for the future. I’m excited to serve as your President in 2016.”
