Madison – Victoria Parmentier, CPM® (CERTIFIED PROPERTY MANAGER®) and President of R.E. Management in Green Bay, has been appointed to serve as a member of the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority (WHEDA) Board of Directors.
R.E. Management is an AMO® (ACCREDITED MANAGEMENT ORGANIZATION®) that has provided management services in the housing marketplace since 1988. Principles of R.E. Management have been used to manage four housing complexes in Green Bay since they were developed in 1980 and 1981, all serving seniors, persons with disabilities and families with dependent children.
“I believe that good management matters, that good management translates into value, and that well-managed properties improve the quality of life for those in our communities,” Parmentier said. “I look forward to serving on the WHEDA board and using my real estate management experience to advance WHEDA’s mission.”
Parmentier has 38 years of experience in Section 8 housing for elderly/disabled households and families with dependent children; eight years of experience in Section 42 housing for elderly/disabled households and families with dependent children; and four years of experience with a multi-bank holding company, specializing in loan committees and shareholder relations.
