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. Tim particularly enjoys managing the large projects that maintain and enhance Park Tower such as the current plaza reconstruction and riser replacement projects. Tim also plays a key role in managing the association’s finances by working closely with the Board and Budget and Finance Committee on the annual operating and reserve budget. One of Tim’s most notable contributions to Park Tower is his commitment to open communication with residents. A good example of this effort is Tim’s weekly “News and Updates” email that keeps residents informed about what is happening in and around Park Tower. “I have found the feedback and positive energy I get from residents and owners in response to the ‘News and Updates’ to be incredibly rewarding.”
Tim started in the industry before he was even out of high school helping his mother publish her real estate business flyers. 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.
Christopher joins the PT staff in April 2018 having been with Draper & Kramer for the past 7 years. His first position was a part-time Receiving Room clerk, then full-time Doorman. After that, he was promoted to an Administrative Assistant, and now steps up to an Assistant Property Manager position here at Park Tower. He is looking forward to learning all about Park Tower and working with the Residents and staff.
Asked a little bit about himself, he considers himself to be a very creative person. He enjoys arts & music, and counts them as a very important part of his life. He said he discovered a new found love for fitness. He also takes great pride in his professional accomplishments and advancements made working for Draper and Kramer.
Jacquie was previously with Park Tower, in the role as the Assistant Manager for Security and Operations. She returned to us, in the Administrative position up front in the office, but was again promoted to Assistant Manager following the departure of Tricia Bulaclac (who moved to another property with another firm). She missed the building and the neighborhood – as well as her former co workers and is excited to have returned to be a part of the Park Tower management team.
She has been working in property management for about 20 years, starting out as an Administrative Assistant, and working her way up to a licensed community association manager.
She loves 80s music and film…but she really loves watching all the young ones at Park Tower as grow and change over the years.
Patrick, born and raised in Slovakia, moved to the USA when he was 9 years old. He grew up in suburban Norridge, and has lived in Chicagoland ever since. He currently lives in Edgewater. His passion is his owning and improving his own home, which he remodeled room by room on his own time.
He previously worked with PTCA as a foreman with MPD construction, coordinating day to day on site activities on two Riser Projects and a couple other contracting jobs the building has needed. When Management found out he was available, they reached out to see if he’d be interested in joining the team as the engineer’s right hand, to replace long time employee and his predecessor Matt Brown.
With the departure of Jason Delgado, he was offered the Engineers position on a temporary basis. Having fit nicely into the position and already tackled a number of large projects, he has now officially assumed the role. He is currently working to attain his formal Stationary Engineer’s License with the Local 1 Union.
Patrik enjoys traveling, snowboarding, and doing small construction projects around his house.
Bill assumed the role of acting assistant Engineer from Patrik, and after 60 days of training and success with a number of projects, was formally offered and accepted the position.
Previously he was our Plumber “Louie’s” right hand during the Riser Projects, and could be counted on to help with more difficult tasks and repair projects. Previously he worked maintenance for a Health Care facility, but “wasn’t feeling it”. So he applied at Park Tower for a more residential/community type position. He enjoys being a part of the team.
He too will be beginning an effort to complete his training with the Union and seek a Stationary Engineer’s License.
