As the weather is finally cooling down and we head into Thanksgiving and year end it is with mixed emotions that I announce the retirement of long time PAMCO executive Barry Edberg which was effective on November 4th.
Barry has been part of the PAMCO family since 1988 when he came to work for the company to manage The Tucson Galleria Shopping Mall. During his tenure Barry was a very successful of not only The Tucson Galleria but many of our multifamily rental and homeowner communities in Arizona and California. His contributions have been many but many will recall him fondly as “The Mayor” of his HOA communities as well for his dry humor and warm smile. I first met Barry when I was a teenager at Franklin’s Men Shop which he co-owned before arriving at PAMCO. I will miss Barry and wish him continued success in his well-deserved retirement.
With Barry’s departure also comes change in leadership leading our community association division. We are proud to announce that Barbara Daoust has joined PAMCO as Senior Vice President – Community Association Director. Ms. Daoust has a broad professional background in community association work here in Arizona. She will direct our staff, Geoff Obral and new staff member Danielle Morris. The selection of our two new staff members reflects the company’s dedication to offer a high level of service to the associations we represent across Southern Arizona.
Since our last message, affiliates we represent sold the Greenleaf on Broadway Apartments and the Shops at Foothills Mall to separate California investors in August.
Wishing all of our clients and all those we serve a very Happy Thanksgiving.
