About Arbogast Custom Homes
Tod Arbogast began his career in the homebuilding industry in 2005 after gaining extensive experience in various professional industries. After graduating from the University of Nevada Reno in 1992 with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration, Tod spent nearly a decade in the big box retail industry with companies such as CompUSA, Computer City, and Golfsmith. Much of his early career was spent driving the formation of new retail models including; building design, operational modeling, and merchandise planning. At various times in his retail career, he oversaw the service, construction, equipment, and supplier vendor price/ performance management as well as new store setup & training for millions of square feet around the country.
After retail, Tod’s entrepreneurial spirit guided him to eMachines where he was an early leader participating in the startup, growth, and eventual Initial Public Offering of one of the fastest companies ever to reach one billion dollars in annual sales.
The need to establish roots brought Tod to Texas and an eventual career with Dell that lasted over nine years. At Dell, he served most recently as Director, Sustainable Business and Dell Giving, working with Dell’s Chairman and CEO Michael Dell.
Currently, Tod serves on the Greater Austin Home Builders Association Board of Directors and is the Chapter President for the Bee Caves and Lakeway Chapter. He also served as an advisory council member at the Environmental Science Institute at the University of Texas at Austin, and the Sustainability Council at Penn State. He has also been a member of the Board of Directors at NetImpact and the National Recycling Coalition.
Tod has been married to his high school sweetheart for 30 years. They have four children. Two are graduates of Baylor University, one attends Utah State University, and the youngest is at Lake Travis High School. Also, Tod and Wendy are proud grandparents to two girls.
Tod’s vast big box commercial retail experience, coupled with his broad business experience has translated to superior quality and outstanding service for clients of Arbogast Custom Homes.
