Mike Gavin of Maumee Capital, LLC has a role as an Independent Senior Advisor to the Skorburg Company.  Since 1976, he has been involved in all aspects of the single-family development process from market research and site selection through contract negotiations, entitlements, engineering, financing and on-site development to lot sales and HOA management.

Prior to his association with Skorburg Company, his 4+ decades of service included senior development/management roles with 5 different developer/builder entities. After nearly 3 years learning the business in the Houston area, Houston’s then-largest builder transferred him to the DFW Metroplex to develop a growth strategy and business plan for a regional operation, which grew to become the 2nd largest Metroplex builder within 4 years. His experience has been with both public and private companies in the Houston and DFW areas. His leadership was also used for 7 years of oversight for asset management and disposition of over $100M of RTC REO from the S&L crisis in the early 90s.

Mr. Gavin earned his bachelor’s degree in civil engineering with minors in both economics and accounting from Purdue University in Indiana.  He has also served on Developers’ Councils and their Boards in Houston, Plano, Frisco, Prosper and North Texas as well as a multi-year volunteer judge for the NTX Future City Competition for middle school students in North Texas. Additionally, he has served his church as Lector, Building Committee Athletic Chair, Men’s Club President and Parish Council President. His passion for the values derived from athletics, which included his involvement as a PA announcer, coach, referee, scouting liaison and President of the Dallas Catholic Softball Association, was shared with his 4 children.
