John Carlson, Mark-Taylor Residential, 2019 Arizona Multihousing Asscoation Board Chair

     PHOENIX, ARIZONA (December 11, 2018) – Arizona Multihousing Association, the statewide trade group for the apartment industry, elected 2019 officers and board members at its December 6 board meeting.

Assuming the chair is John Carlson, President of Mark-Taylor Residential. The rest of the leadership group comprises Wendy Weiske, vice chair, Dunlap & Magee; Kim Pacheco, treasurer, Scotia Group Management; Reid Butler, secretary, Butler Housing Company; Nicole Wray, immediate past chair, Greystar; and Adam Grecco, AMC executive, Burns Pest Elimination.

“My goal is to energize and engage,” Carlson said. “We have a board that is 50 strong, the industry is growing, and we are at the forefront of providing quality housing to over 37 percent of Arizonans. The success of the apartment industry is something we’re proud of. It’s like being the Yankees. Everyone is chasing you and some are jealous.

“Being in that role puts a certain amount of responsibility on us. This industry is as strong as ever. Through our legislative work and affiliation with NAA (National Apartment Association), we intend to keep it going strong. We’re the fifth largest NAA affiliate in the U.S. and one of the most proactive; we’re also the fourth largest trade organization in Arizona. I’m looking forward to a great year,” Carlson said.
