Frank Mackle III

Frank Mackle III is President and CEO of The Mackle Company, a holding company with investments in stocks, bonds, and real estate.

Frank served as President and CEO and Executive Vice President of The Mackle Company from 1986 to 2012. At the time, the Mackle Company was doing business as Avanti Products, the largest distributor of appliance products in the U.S., including refrigerators, freezers, wine coolers, ranges, air conditioners, and laundry products. Its retail partners included Best Buy, Target, and more than 300 other retail outlets.

He also served as President and COO, Executive Vice President, and DIrector of the Deltona Corporation, which was listed on the New York Stock Exchange. The company was founded by the Mackle brothers, including Frank Jr., Robert, and Elliott Mackle. The Deltona Corporation’s primary business was the sale of homes, condominiums, and home-sites in 10 master planned communities in Florida. The company was well-known for the Mackle family standards of quality and customer satisfaction, which continues in its businesses to this day. At the time (1975-1986), the Deltona Corporation had approximately 2,500 employees and a salesforce of more than 1,000 sales representatives in approximately 100 offices worldwide.

The Deltona Corporation sold approximately 8,000 homes and condominiums, developed more than 1,000 miles of roads, expanded nine utility systems, operated nine golf and country clubs, as well as a regional lumber company. The company also directed the design, permitting, and sale of Tampa Palms, a 5,000-acre community.

Additionally, the Deltona Corporation oversaw a massive customer service effort to resolve more than 100 million dollars of purchaser claims, as well as numerous lawsuits and regulatory issues stemming out of the Corps of Engineers 1976 denial of dredging permits on Marco Island. At the time, Frank successfully navigated the company and redirected it from installment land sales to homes and condominiums as the primary revenue and profit source of the company.

Frank also directed the private and public financing of the company, bringing in a major partner who invested more than 30 million dollars into the company, and he later successfully defended the company from a hostile takeover.

In 1985, Frank negotiated the sale of controlling interest in Deltona to Minnesota Power Corp., and he continued to serve as a director of The Deltona Corporation until 1986.

From 1972 to 1975, Frank served as Senior Vice President and Vice President of Construction and Development for The Deltona Corporation, where he was responsible for home construction, condominium construction, road building, earthmoving, shopping center construction, dredge and fill operations, seawall production, among other activities. At the time, the annual volume of work was in excess of 40 million dollars.

Frank earned his Bachelor’s degree with a major in Civil Engineering from The University of Notre Dame.

Frank has an extensive philanthropic background including: Boystown of Florida; Hurricane Andrew Relief Effort; ICARE Bay Point School; Christmas in April – USA (now Rebuilding Together); Christmas in April – Greater Miami, and The Marian Center.
