Kimberly Sutherland Promoted to VP of Operations for RM Illinois
RealManage announced today the promotion of Kimberly Sutherland, PCAM to Vice President of Operations for its Illinois market.
Kimberly Sutherland joined the RealManage family in June of 2017 through an acquisition of Rowell, Inc. She embodied the leadership abilities that quickly earned her the title of Director of Community Association Management. Barely a year later, Kimberly was promoted yet again to Vice President of Operations over RealManage Illinois.
“Having a passion for continuous improvement,” states Kimberly Sutherland, “I am excited to use my experience to promote process development, establish best practices, and am dedicated to the strong development of our Illinois team to ensure we continue to deliver exceptional customer service to our clients. “
While serving on her own association board of directors, the opportunity presented itself for Kimberly to join Rowell (now RealManage) as an on-site community manager. Since 2008, Kimberly has not looked back as she enjoys educating board members and assisting them in making decisions for the betterment of their communities. Kimberly enjoys watching communities transform through largescale projects and takes pride in knowing she helped in guiding them through the process. Being well-prepared is within her nature as she makes sure her boards have relevant information promptly so that they can make well-informed decisions.
Kimberly also is a holder of the coveted Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM®) designation through Community Association Institute. She is the 3,000 Community Manager to have received this designation. In 2014 Kimberly received the CAI – Illinois Rising Star Award, in 2018 she was awarded the Olympus Award from the chapter, and currently is the Co-Chair of the CAI Golf committee.
Daneen Reinke, Division President, states “With our growth in the Illinois market the past two years, it quickly became apparent the need to add talented leadership to ensure we continue to deliver the best management services our communities deserve. Kimberly’s attention to detail, ability to problem solve, thorough communication with our clients and team members, these qualities to name a few, have made her hands down the perfect fit for the Vice President of Operations position. Her proactive management is creating a culture within our family that is key to the success of our communities. We could not have been more fortunate in acquiring a company that had Kimberly as this hidden gem and are honored to have her as a leader within our RealManage family.”
