Our Company Leadership
The Paul Ash Management Team
TOGETHER, spanning three generations, the firm has relied upon a select group of diligent professionals who are highly trained, motivated, and dedicated to the success of our customers and investors.
Paul Ash enjoyed an honored reputation in the real estate development and asset management community for over five decades. His innovative financial and marketing decisions were responsible for the success of our company’s value added approach to asset management. A member of the University of Arizona Class of ’52 and a former world class athlete, Paul’s multifaceted background included wholesale and retail sales experience. Perhaps the most important thing that Paul Ash offered during his career was his personal integrity and expertise in preserving and enhancing our corporate and partnership assets over the years of his leadership. Paul Ash’s word was his bond. He was an astute buyer, a skillful manager, and a fair seller. We will miss his energy, vitality, and abilities to successfully develop, acquire, and manage all types of properties. Paul Ash was a major force behind the firm and has left his legacy to the Paul Ash Management staff as they tackle new challenges in the years and decades to follow.
