Current President

Bob Schickedanz
President, Ontario Home Builders’ Association

Robert (Bob) Schickedanz currently sits as the President of the Ontario Home Builder’s Association (OHBA). Prior to his appointment in 2019, Bob served on the OHBA Executive Committee as 2nd Vice President and 1st Vice President. In addition, Bob recently served as the 2018/2019 Simcoe County Home Builders’ Association’s (SCHBA) President and is Co-Founder of FarSight Homes.

Due to the challenging and uncertain times our industry faced through COVID, Bob continued to serve a second term as President of OHBA, and graciously took on a third term as President until 2022.

Bob’s passion for the home building and renovation industry has been with him since childhood, working alongside his father and uncles at Schickedanz Bros Limited, a family business established in 1951.

After working at the MMM Group (1980-1982) as a Professional Civil Engineer, Bob rejoined the family at Schickedanz Bros Limited as the Land Development Manager, where he was responsible for land acquisition, development approvals and site servicing at various projects across Ontario.

In 2001, Bob, along with his brother Rick, co-founded FarSight Homes, the next generation of the family business.  FarSight Homes is currently a member of both the Simcoe County Home Builders’ Association and the Durham Region Home Builders’ Association.

Bob takes great pride in being a second-generation builder and is thrilled to also welcome the next generation into their growing family business.
