In 2000, Rohdhouse merged with Tarragon and Bob was named President and Chief Executive Officer of Tarragon Development Corporation. He was also appointed to the Board of Directors. Bob announced his retirement from Tarragon in December 2006. In 2007, Bob founded Rohdie Group with Ron Leichtner with the desire to develop, lease and manage multi-family residential communities targeting high growth markets in the Northeast and Southeast United States.
