Julie Newcomb is probably the only chief executive of a public building company who can get away with wearing shiny gold high heels to work. That's because, according to the National Assn. of Home Builders, she is the only woman to hold such a job. Newcomb, age 45, was elevated in January from her position as vice president of sales and marketing at Costain Homes in Newport Beach, which is part of a $3-billion British-owned mining and construction conglomerate, Costain Group PLC.

Let's be blunt: Julie Newcomb Hill has it made. She's president and CEO of a publicly owned land development company, Costain Homes, a unique position for a woman in the United States. She's able to arrange her schedule so she leaves the office at 2:30 each day and spends the rest of the afternoon with her 10-year-old son, Matthew. She's bright--a graduate with honors from UCLA, where she was also homecoming queen in 1967. She's athletic--a skier, swimmer, onetime sky diver and hang glider.

I was pleased to read in The Times (Jan. 11) about UC Irvine's plans to make improvements in its approach to supporting Orange County's small businesses. The recent closure of the Accelerate business development center provides an opportunity for the university to better focus its outreach efforts and to develop a more comprehensive program drawing from strengths in many parts of the campus. As an Orange County business executive, I look forward to the new opportunities that will result from the university's latest efforts to better serve the local business community.

Though it has been based in Orange County for nearly a decade, Costain Homes Inc. has never built a house here--until now. Flush with a cash infusion from its publicly owned British parent company, Costain recently outbid some of the better-known local names in home building to buy an $8-million Fountain Valley property that was formerly a school. In what will be the company's first Orange County project, Costain plans to build more than 60 homes there priced at about $375,000 each.
