BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – The Viera Company has selected Michael L. Arnold as its new Vice President of Land Development. He will be responsible for overseeing the Land Development Department within The Viera Company working directly under President Todd J. Pokrywa.
Arnold has more than 30 years of experience in the project engineering and land development field and an extensive background in the development, design, maintenance, operations, and management of public works infrastructure.
“I am very happy to join The Viera Company team,” said Arnold.
“The excellence for which The Viera Company has executed the development of Viera is evident in the recent master plan community development ranking. The team has created a beautiful space for people to live. I look forward to continuing to build on their efforts.”
Prior to joining The Viera Company, Arnold was with Flatiron Construction Corporation in Texas; was the owner and president of M. Arnold & Associates, LLC in Kentucky; and the Vice President of Development for Core Communities in Port St. Lucie, overseeing all development activities at the master-planned community of Tradition, Florida.
“Michael Arnold brings tremendous land development experience to The Viera Company team as a professional engineer with a strong background in both the public and private sectors including several years at Tradition, Florida,” said Pokrywa.
“We are delighted to have Michael join us at a very pivotal time in the evolution of the master planned community as we plan and develop the first neighborhoods within the 3,000+ acre area west of the newest point of ingress and egress from Viera at I-95 and the Pineda Interchange. Mr. Arnold will also help us to continue key construction activities in the emerging mixed use hubs of the Pineda Interchange District, Borrows West and the Viera Town Center.”
Arnold earned three bachelor’s degrees: one in Civil Engineering from the University of Kentucky, one in Liberal Arts from Kentucky Wesleyan, and another in Civil Engineering Technology from Western Kentucky University.
He and his wife have recently relocated to Brevard County from Grapevine, Texas where Arnold enjoys playing golf, exercising and spending time on the beach with his family.
