On January 31, 2023, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Dream Finders Homes, Inc. (the “Company”) expanded the number of directors to seven members and appointed William W. Weatherford to serve as a director on the Board, effective immediately.

Mr. Weatherford, age 43, brings more than two decades of governance, financial and risk management expertise to the Company’s Board. He is currently managing partner of Weatherford Capital, which he co-founded in 2015 to build and invest in businesses that positively impact the world. In 2012, prior to the founding of Weatherford Capital, Mr. Weatherford made history as the 84th Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives becoming the youngest presiding officer of any state legislative chamber in the United States at the time. Mr. Weatherford served in the Florida Legislature from 2006 until 2014 and used his position as Speaker to advocate for social mobility through free enterprise and education reform and focused his tenure on breaking the cycle of generational poverty.

Mr. Weatherford currently serves as chairman of the University of South Florida’s board of trustees. Mr. Weatherford also recently served as co-chairman of the host committee for Super Bowl LV in Tampa, Florida. In addition to chairing the board at the University of South Florida, Mr. Weatherford currently serves on the boards of TECO Energy, Kitson & Partners, PayIt, SOMA Global, The Florida Council of 100, and The National Council for the American Enterprise Institute. Mr. Weatherford also has previous public company board experience from his directorships with Sunshine Bancorp, Inc. from 2015 to 2018 and Mallard Acquisition Corp. from 2020 to 2022.

Mr. Weatherford will receive the same compensation as the Company’s other non-employee directors.

There are no family relationships between Mr. Weatherford and any director or other executive officer of the Company, nor are there any transactions between Mr. Weatherford or any member of his immediate family and the Company or any of its subsidiaries that would be reportable as a related party transaction.
