COMPANY OVERVIEW

Joseph S. Koury

Local and family-owned since 1952 when founded by the late Joseph Koury, Koury Corporation has quietly and steadily transformed the landscape of Greensboro, North Carolina.  From its earliest days as a prolific homebuilder to the present, the company has pioneered many of the region’s most innovative and consequential projects.

For 45 years, Mr. Koury built the company’s reputation for quality and innovation as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. The leadership he provided allowed the company to transition confidently upon his passing in 1998 into the hands of an experienced management team, one that continues to embrace the ideals that Mr. Koury espoused from day one: commitment to quality, superior customer service, integrity, long-term ownership and hands-on management.
