PulteGroup’s Brandon Jones was fired amid Bill Bolte’s Twitter claim

PulteGroup, one of the nation’s largest homebuilders formerly based in Detroit, said Friday it had fired its new chief operating officer in the wake of allegations that he harassed the grandson of the company’s founder on Twitter.

The company announced that Brandon Jones, who would have started as COO in January, “has been terminated and will be leaving the company, effective immediately.” The company’s statement said Jones’ departure followed an “independent investigation” that he violated PulteGroup’s code of ethical business conduct.

On Tuesday, Jones, who was senior vice president of field operations at PulteGroup, was sued by Bill Bolte, 34, the grandson of late Bolte Homes founder William J. Bolte. The lawsuit accused Jones of hating the younger Bolt and using multiple false identities on Twitter to harass him and other Bolt family members.
