He’s always been the spirit of Lloyd Companies, and now our founder and board chairman Craig Lloyd has been honored with the Spirit of Sioux Falls Award.
Craig was honored by the Sioux Falls Development Foundation Nov. 16 with the annual award, which recognizes leadership excellence and dedication to the Sioux Falls business community and its economic growth.
In typical Craig fashion, as he listened in the crowd he thought the presenter was describing someone else’s accomplishments.
We knew better at Lloyd Companies, and are thrilled to see Craig recognized for communitywide for his far-reaching contributions.
It all started in 1972, when Craig and his wife, Pat, moved to Sioux Falls to manage an affordable housing community. Our company has been privileged to grow under his leadership to manage more than 5,000 apartments and become a regional leader in land, commercial and multifamily development and brokerage.

As our current board chair, Craig remains as passionate and committed to the success of Lloyd Companies as ever. He keeps us centered on our mission of improving quality of life for all we serve, and his vision for a better future in Sioux Falls helps lead us to build an even stronger community.
“Craig Lloyd embodies the ideal of a great corporate citizen,” said Steve Statz, Development Foundation board chairman, in presenting the award. “His life has been about finding ways to help grow Sioux Falls and South Dakota and make the place we live stronger and better.”
We couldn’t agree more. Congratulations, Craig, from your Lloyd Companies family.
