How do you retain your best and brightest employees?
We strive to put the right person in the right job, and then empower them so they feel comfortable making decisions and putting forth ideas.
Who inspired you to get into the business?
I didn’t plan to necessarily go into the community association management business. I served as the controller and chief operating officer of RMI prior to being asked to serve as CEO by Doug Todoroff after he retired. Doug has been great at providing insights into this industry.
Little known fact about yourself?
Growing up in Idaho, I was once a milkman. Yes, the kind that used to deliver milk to businesses and families. My family owned a creamery, and I worked there while I was in high school.
What do you like most and least about your industry?
What I like most about the industry, is the people that I meet. Sometimes, unfortunately, you also meet people at very trying times in their life and that can be challenging.
What three values do you hope to pass on to your employees?
Honesty, accountability and service to our clients and homeowners.
Presently in my line of work…
I’m pleased with the success of the company, particularly in this economy. We continue to grow by adding clients and employees and increasing our revenue by double digits each year.
What is your favorite college memory?
One of my professors stated at the beginning of the semester that he was only going to give two “A’s” out, and I wondered who was going to get the other. It might sound a bit cocky, but I really enjoyed the challenge and enjoyed succeeding in school.
What is your favorite book and why?
“Team of Rivals” by Doris Kearns Goodwin. It’s a biography of Abraham Lincoln, who I think is one of the most impressive men in history.
