engineering from the Chelsea College of Aeronautical
Engineering. He and his family came to America
in 1977 and settled in Daytona Beach, where Mr.

earned a B.S in aeronautical studies and an MBA.
A dedicated family man, Mr. Hosseini and his wife
of 25 years, Forough, have three daughters. Their
twins, aged nine, and their 20-year-old sophmore
college student at the University of Michigan
keep them both actively involved with their many
school activities. Even with his busy schedule,
Mr. Hosseini does carve out time out to pursue
his personal hobbies, which include a good, competitive
round of golf, every chance he gets. He is also
an enthusiastic fan and an avid supporter of Embry-Riddle's
many athletic programs and still enjoys flying
a small airplane every now and again.
Although very proud of ICI Homes' extraordinary
23-year track record that boasts thousands of
quality built homes and satisfied customers, Mr.
Hosseini continues to look ahead. When asked about
the future, he is quick to point out that ICI
Homes is always looking five years down the road
exploring new markets and finding ways to enhance
the customers' home building experience. He believes
in hard work, strong ethics and following a clear
vision, and has surrounded himself with people
that feel the same way. Having great confidence
in the team he has assembled, Mr. Hosseini explained,
" Staying on top is a total team effort;
trusting your key people to make decisions is
essential to the company's ultimate success."
His philosophy has served him well and continues
to show the way, as ICI Homes is on track to have
its best year ever.
