ACMO Appoints New Executive Director
The board of directors of the Association of Condominium Managers (ACMO) is pleased to announce the appointment of Paul MacDonald as the new Executive Director of the organization effective July 22, 2019.
Mr. MacDonald brings almost 25 years of association and not-for-profit leadership experience to ACMO having held roles with the Canadian Golf Foundation, Golf Canada, the Canadian Association of Family Enterprise and the Family Enterprise Xchange. Most recently, Mr. MacDonald led the reorganization and consolidation of two national associations, ten independent chapters and a foundation, culminating in the launch of a new national association.
Mr. MacDonald holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree with honours from Queen’s University and brings a diverse background including a depth of experience in strategic and operational planning and management, stakeholder and partner relations, program development, marketing and communications and change management.
“I am honoured and excited by the prospect of working with the ACMO board, members and stakeholders to build tangible membership value and further strengthen the vital role the association and its membership play within the condominium management space” said MacDonald.
The national search for the executive director role was launched in April guided by a search committee of selected board members working with The Portage Group, an executive search firm. Amanda Curtis, who has provided leadership and support to ACMO for the past 15 years, is stepping away from the front line. She is, however, committed to being available to ACMO as a resource, and intends to focus her efforts on projects within BB&C Management Services Inc. where she serves as Founding Partner.
In his spare time Mr. MacDonald can be found touring the backroads of Ontario on his motorcycle, volunteering with the Milton Fire Department Pipes & Drums band, playing bagpipes at highland games competitions, golfing or spending time with his two children.
Please join the ACMO board in welcoming Paul into this role.
