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 was with Draper and Kramer when first brought on board and has remained through to management transitions; now with the Habitat Company. He enjoys the challenges from day to day, problem solving, and always looks forward to what tomorrow brings.
He enjoys movies, barbecuing, giraffes and the color purple.
Danny joined the Park Tower management staff in December 2021 to assist with bookkeeping and accounts payable/accounts receivable. He is new to property management, but eager to learn all about Park Tower! His previous experience is in publishing as an editor of elementary mathematics textbooks, so he is adept with both words and numbers.
A native of Maryland, Danny has lived in the Midwest since 2004, and in Chicago since 2010. He resides a short walk away in Edgewater with his cat.
He enjoys crossword puzzles, elephants and the color orange.
Jacquie was previously with Park Tower, in the role as the Assistant Manager for Security and Operations. Jacquie is familiar with the area, having lived and worked in the area previously.
Jacquie enjoys lifting weights and the physical and mental benefits of working out. She was able to transition working out at home during the pandemic. Did you know she is a big fan of 80’s music, Miami Vice and Hello Kitty?
Jacquie applies the Golden Rule when interacting with residents, greeting each resident or guest warmly and make them feel comfortable. She burns off workday steam with laughter, writing fun limericks for her coworkers or hula hooping in the mall hallway.
She enjoys destressing with word searches, seahorse and the color kelly green.
Kirsty joined the Park Tower team on a temporary basis in May of 2022, and joined us as a Habitat employee in September of 2022. She hails from the sunny shores of Florida where she was born and raised, and had never seen snow before she moved to Chicago in January of 2022!
Kirsty is new to property management, and spent the 7 years previous working in the child welfare sphere. Despite the career shift, she continues to have a passion for advocacy and has applied that passion to her role here at Park Tower. Kirsty enjoys getting to know the residents, and takes pride in being able to assist with a variety of issues.
In her spare time, Kirsty enjoys playing video games and spending time with her boyfriend and beloved cat. She also enjoys cooking, singing (badly), and occasionally painting. Her favorite color is green.
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.
