Ira Fulton, 80, Still Building His Legacy
The housing market may be sluggish, but homebuilding mogul, philanthropist and Arizona original Ira Fulton is still moving full steam ahead. At 80, the founder and chairman of Tempe-based Fulton Homes is live, outspoken, determined and busy. He still goes to the office daily and puts in long hours.
Despite being forced into bankruptcy in 2009, Fulton Homes is one of the Valley’s top homebuilders. Last year, it out-sold every local competitor in terms of sales per subdivision.
