Brandon Elliott

Brandon Elliott’s journey from the ice rinks of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, to the helm of one of Mississippi’s leading home-building companies is nothing short of inspiring. Born with a passion for hockey, Brandon’s path took an unexpected turn when he ventured into the world of home construction, ultimately becoming the President and Chief Executive Officer of Elliott Homes.

In 2004, Brandon’s skills on the ice caught the attention of the Tampa Bay Lightning, leading to his drafting and subsequent signing with the NHL team. This move marked the beginning of Brandon’s professional hockey career and brought him to Biloxi as part of the Tampa Bay farm team. However, destiny had other plans for him.

Midway through the season, despite still being under contract, he made the bold decision to retire from hockey.  He was only 23. Driven by a newfound passion for home building and a keen entrepreneurial spirit, Brandon saw a remarkable opportunity in the real estate market of the Gulf Coast region.

In 2008, Brandon founded Elliott Homes. He took on every aspect of the business, from sales and finance to purchasing, site management, and warranty services.

Over the years, Elliott Homes experienced exponential growth, reflecting his dedication, leadership, and commitment to excellence. By 2021, the company had built an impressive portfolio, having constructed 1,537 homes and developed over 1,500 lots. Not only did Brandon focus on business success, but he also embraced philanthropy, donating eight St. Jude Dream Homes and raising nearly $7,000,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Brandon’s achievements include prestigious awards such as the Gulf Coast HBA Builder of the Year (2012), Mississippi State HBA Builder of the Year (2012), and numerous state awards for architecture and design. He has been featured on the cover of South Mississippi Living magazine and honored as one of Builder Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40 in the nation.

Beyond his professional endeavors, Brandon remains deeply involved in his community, serving as a leader in various capacities. He was appointed by the mayor to the Gulfport Planning Commission and recognized as the Gulf Coast Business Council Small Business Leader of the Year in 2022. Brandon’s commitment to continuous learning and growth is evident through his membership in the Young Presidents’ Organization, where he serves as the state Education Chair.

As Brandon continues to lead Elliott Homes into the future, his unwavering dedication to innovation, quality, and community service serves as inspiration for young entrepreneurs.
