Tim is a Licensed Community Association Manager and has been Park Tower’s property manager since 2007. Tim oversees the buildings day to day operations, manages the staff and vendor relationships and acts as a resource and liaison between Management, the Board and Committees.

His first position in property management was working with rental properties. He soon graduated to condo management when he moved to Chicago in 2000. Tim has been with Draper and Kramer since 2001 and enjoys the challenges from day to day, problem solving, and always looks forward to what tomorrow brings.
