PulteGroup CEO Richard Dugas Jr. (PulteGroup website)

The CEO of PulteGroup, the Buckhead-based Fortune 500 homebuilding corporation, will retire next year partly due to internal conflicts with the company’s founders, according to reports from ajc.com and the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

Richard Dugas Jr. has been a prominent corporate leader since moving the company headquarters from Michigan to Atlanta in 2014. But that move reportedly was among the decisions that caused the Pulte family to push for a leadership change.
