Boyd is building a better community through smart and strategic growth, collaborative efforts, fair dealings and philanthropic endeavors.
In 1996, Thad Boyd founded Boyd Development Company and has since developed millions of square feet of office, retail and industrial properties. His entry into real estate and development started during his time in the family business of Mark III Industries, Inc., a well-storied Ocala-based company. Thad’s dad Roy “Thad” Boyd, Jr. asked for a company volunteer to search out and gather information nationwide on the best manufacturing facilities of the time. Thad volunteered much to his father’s dismay. After some consideration and the willingness of another more seasoned Mark III employee who volunteered to help Thad, he was given the job. His counterpart was Joe Krim. That year of traveling and studying manufacturing and buildings instilled a love of real estate and development in Thad.Read More
Thad was the CEO of Mark III from 1987 through 1993 and was responsible for the consolidation of three different facilities totaling approximately 100,000 square feet into a newly designed state of the art 300,000 square foot plant on Interstate 75. In three years he vertically integrated and went from less than $300,000,000 in sales to over $900,000,000. Market share increased from 9% to 24% in that same period and Thad was named one of Florida’s Top 100 CEOs by Florida Trend Magazine in 1992.
In 1995, at the age of 30, Thad oversaw the sale of the family business after the untimely death of Roy “Thad” Boyd, Jr.
