Sales and Marketing Supervisor Earns Key Role for Country’s Largest Real Estate Management Association
BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 19, 2015 – Alla Shtipelman, regional sales and marketing supervisor for ROSS Management Services, was inducted as the Property Management Association’s President-Elect today in Washington, D.C.
The PMA, the largest association of its kind in the country, is a D.C.-based real estate management association that represents nearly 1,800 capital-area property management professionals, who are responsible for approximately 750,000 residential units and more than 120,000 square feet of commercial, retail and industrial space.
“Alla is a fantastic leader and perfect for this position,” said Elaine De Lude, chief marketing officer for ROSS Management Services. “I have no doubts that she will excel as PMA president, just as she does in her roles here at ROSS and just as she has throughout her career. She possesses that keen mix of being the ultimate professional who at once is able to relate to people at all levels of any multifamily firm.”
As part of her duties for ROSS Management Services, Shtipelman is assigned to communities that experience vacancy, or other leasing challenges, for the sole purpose of managing sales and marketing activities, providing hands-on leasing assistance and resident retention initiatives to the community. She works with the community team to create a positive impression to prospective residents, as well as current residents. Her position at ROSS led her to the PMA, where she has served various roles and was elected to the board of directors in 2014. She serves as part of the Holiday Ball and Membership committees, was a co-chair for the August Social Committee and has been an active member of the Community Service Committee and PMA Toastmasters Club.
“Alla will help tremendously with PMA’s mission to exchange knowledge and offer practical education for the multifamily industry, while helping members realize significant return on their investment of time and resources,” De Lude said. “Her keen focus on the dynamic changes in the industry will cultivate the professional development of members seeking to move forward in the industry.”
As part of her duties as sales and marketing supervisor, Shtipelman helps oversee nine apartment communities operated by ROSS Management Services, representing approximately 3,400 apartment homes.
