Phyllis Carpenter, Owner –
Phyllis joined Tri-City under its prior ownership in the early 70’s. She served Tri-City as both Office Manager and Community Manager. With over twenty (20) years experience, Phyllis purchased Tri-City in 1993. She earned all of the professional designations from CAI, including AMS, CMCA, and PCAM.
As the new owner of Tri-City, Phyllis recognized that a new philosophy, held to this day, was important in achieving successful results and that was to work only for homeowner-controlled community associations and to solely focus on professional community management.
Phyllis served as a board member of Arizona Association of Community Managers (AACM) after Tri-City joined this group as a founding member.
