The business of property management was a natural progression in Beth Holt's professional life. She began her career in sales, working for TruGreen ChemLawn in Louisville, where her accomplishments included increasing the company's account base and organizing and implementing a successful team selling campaign.
Beth's skills next took her to Cleveland-based State Industrial Products, where her position as a sales associate, and then as assistant District Sales Manager, routinely earned her recognition as winner of the President's Club Award and the annual Achiever Award…not once, but each of the five years she worked for the company. Beth's management skills took shape as she recruited and trained new sales staff, and worked with the territory manager developing sales projections, profit and loss statements, budgeting strategies and expense control measures.
Beth found her niche in property management with Louisville's Bailey Property Management, supervising a staff of 20 – including leasing agents, bookkeepers, contractors and maintenance personnel. Beth managed the company's day-to-day operations, dealing directly with property owners and tenants and developing new marketing strategies for the company's 575 units. Her success was evident, with a 27% decrease in vacancies and a 20% increase in gross income.
In 2004, Beth brought her knowledge and her talent to Mulloy Properties, where she manages 10 condominium communities, including some of the area's most prestigious.
