United Group Chief Operating Officer Earns Certified Property Manager Credential
April 19, 2018
How does anyone balance managing the day-to-day operations of an entire company’s property management portfolio, lead a team of more than 125 employees, help raise three children, and complete a strenuous course schedule to earn a Certified Property Manager (CPM) credential from the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM)?
For Jeff Arnold, Chief Operating Officer of United Realty Management Corporation, it’s all in a day’s work.
Arnold, a native of Houston, TX, spent more than twelve months studying and completing a taxing schedule of coursework and exams to obtain the prominent Certified Property Management (CPM) credential from the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM).
IREM, an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS, is recognized around the world as a community of devoted real estate mangers dedicated to ethical business practices, maximizing real estate investments, and promoting innovative management techniques.
“It’s a privilege to join such an esteemed organization, and I’m thankful to Michael Uccellini for sponsoring my candidacy to become a member of IREM and earn my CPM,” said Arnold.
To qualify for an IREM membership, a potential candidate must be sponsored by a current Certified Property Manager. Michael J. Uccellini, President and CEO of United Group of Companies, Inc. who also serves as IREM’s President of New York Capital Region Chapter No. 93 sponsored Arnold.
Arnold plans to apply the valuable practices he learned from the IREM coursework into everyday work strategies. He currently provides the direction of operations across all of the property management portfolios, including student, senior and multi-family housing, as well as commercial and mixed-use developments.
“Even with more than twenty years experience in every facet of property management, I believe it’s important to continue to be innovative and learn new aspects of our constantly changing industry,” said Arnold. “I’m thrilled to now be a part of the IREM community, and I’m very confident that completing the coursework and earning my CPM credential will help me continue to grow our company, effectively lead employees, and stay successful.”
