For the past 27 years, Augusto J. Gil has served as President of Gil Development Inc. and Gil Homes. He became president of his family-owned and operated company in 1989 after attending the School of Architecture at the University of Miami. It was at this time that the company partnered with several businesses building home developments throughout Miami-Dade County. The success of these ventures positioned Gil and Gil Development to exceed their goals in home sales year after year. Under Gil’s leadership, the family business reached its objective of becoming an independently operated company in 2000. Gil Development is currently building commercial and residential developments throughout Miami-Dade County as well as Tampa, Florida. Gil Homes and Gil Development have received numerous awards from the Latin Builders Association (LBA) and the Builders Association of South Florida (BASF) for their community developments and model designs. The company has been a member of both prestigious associations for the past two decades. Gil has served on the LBA Board of Directors since 1989. In 2002, he was elected president-elect of the LBA and in October 2004 he became the association’s president. He also held a position with the BASF’s Community Affairs Committee. Gil is dedicated to serving the Miami-Dade community. He has sat on the Development Process Advisory Committee, which advises the Mayor and Miami-Dade County Commissioners on issues affecting the building industry. He also serves as a member of the Beacon Council and Baptist Hospital Foundation Board. Recently, Gil was appointed by the Miami-Dade County Manager to sit on the Miami-Dade Community Affordable Housing Strategies Alliance Task Force, the Mayor’s Blue Ribbon Customer Review Group and is the Chair of the Florida Hispanic Legislative Foundation. In April 2007, he was inducted into the Miami Dade College Hall of Fame for Urban Development and today serves as Treasurer on the Miami-Dade College Foundation Board.
