Kathy Melikian Bramhall, CMCA, AMS, Vice President of Sales & Retention
Kathy never thought of herself as a “sales” person; however, after 20+ years, she found that she is a modern version of one. Her business ethics for honesty and perseverance have made her who she is today, people can see it and it’s what draws them in.
Kathy began her career in Indiana when she was in her early 20’s. She wanted a career in an industry that would survive economic turmoil, where making money went hand-in-hand with helping people. Managing apartment buildings afforded that. Her career evolved into association management, which allowed her to manage condominiums, townhomes, and single-family homes. She acquired very valuable general construction knowledge at that time. In 2002, she moved to Florida to be closer to family. Career is important, but personal life and family come first. She didn’t learn that overnight. She researched many management companies in the Tampa Bay area and decided that Condominium Associates would be a good fit for her. Larger companies don’t always provide good customer service, but medium-sized, locally owned companies are better able to control their practices. By that she means they are free to tailor their services to supply customer needs; not bow to what a corporate office dictates. Kathy began her career with CA in our Harbour Island office; and, after 4-years, she approached the owners about opening a much-needed Pasco County office. She promised them that within 5-years she would grow the office to be larger than our Harbour Island location. She met her goal.
In 2015, Kathy was offered the role of Vice President of Sales & Retention. Since she was already indirectly involved in selling and needed a new challenge, she jumped at the offer. She now handles new business development and client retention on a company-wide basis and she loves it. Over the past several years, she started teaching and coaching board members. She enjoys public speaking and sharing her knowledge and experiences within our industry.
Kathy is an animal-rights activist and a member of both the SPCA and Humane Society. She is also a supporter of Lab Rescue, having adopted two dogs from their shelter. She has active membership in the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Pasco Alliance of Community Associations (PACA), Community Associations Institute (CAI), and the Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce.
