Frank Coppola Named Florida Home Builders Association Associate of the Year

Tallahassee, Fla. – The Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA) has named Frank Coppola of
Coppola Brothers Construction Management the 2022 Stephen D. Gidus Associate of the Year.
Coppola, the 29 th recipient of this prestigious honor, was selected from the nearly 8,000 members
of the Association for this recognition. The award encourages best practices, expertise, and
exceptional leadership qualities in a Florida remodeler.
Coppola received the award to a standing ovation during the FHBA Fall Leadership Conference
November 11, 2022 at the Margaritaville Resort Orlando.
Coppola launched his company in New Jersey in 2004 and in a short time has made a major
impact in the Gold Coast region and across the state of Florida, while simultaneously operating in
New Jersey, Texas, and Vermont.
A Florida Certified Master Builder and a member of the Palm Beach Civic Association and the
Home Builders of Great Austin Texas, Coppola also serves the political action committee for the
FHBA and is the current president of the Metropolitan Builders and Contractors Association of
New Jersey.
“It’s hard to believe Frank hasn’t been a part of our association for decades,” says FHBA
President, T.J. Thornberry. “He began to make a tremendous impact at the Gold Coast chapter
and has continued to do so across the state since the day he joined. Frank has quickly become
known for his can-do attitude and his willingness to take on any challenge or new venture.”
“Remodeling breathes life back into homes, communities, and the building industry at-large,”
said Rusty Payton, FHBA CEO/Chief Lobbyist. “Remodelers have helped revitalize our state and
we are proud to recognize Frank for his outstanding career accomplishments.”
