Veteran Property Manager Focuses on Building Best Practices and Teams

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2014) - Wood Residential Services, the property management division of Wood Partners, has promoted veteran property manager Kim Small from vice president to senior vice president for the Central Region. A seasoned, well-respected executive, Small oversees all property management for Wood Residential Service's Central Region portfolio with 4,000 units -- more than half of the company's entire portfolio.

"We are lucky to have someone on the Wood Residential Services team, and specifically Wood Residential Services Central, with Kim's caliber of leadership and performance," said Patrick G. Trask, regional development director for Wood Partners' Central Region. "Kim is a natural leader who knows how to motivate her team to drive results."

Small, an expert in building operational talent, strategic growth and turnaround property performances, is focusing on putting best practices into place and building outstanding teams for Wood Residential Services.

Before she joined Wood Partners in 2013, Small spent most of her career overseeing the management of properties across the United States, including The Morgan Group, Alliance Residential and Gables Residential. As senior vice president and director of national operations for Morgan Group Management from 2008 to 2013, Small headed up the management company improving its financial results as well as the equity partner, resident and employee experience. As Central region's vice president for Alliance Communities, she grew the company's portfolio from 4,000 units to 13,000 units in two years. As area vice president for third-party operations in Texas, Tennessee, Arizona and the Carolinas for Gables Residential, she led a customer service initiative that garnered national awards.

"Working at Wood Partners has been one of the best and most enjoyable experiences I've ever had -- and I've been associated with great firms," Small said. "When you have this caliber of development/construction talent and such hard working operations people around you, you can't help but be successful."

The 2011 president of the United States' largest apartment association: the Houston Apartment Association (HAA), Small continues to serve the industry as a HAA Board member and delegates for the Texas Apartment Association and the National Apartment Association.
