MANCHESTER CENTER >> Long-time TPW employees Marek Kovac, director of information systems, and Paul W. Carroccio, president and CEO, recently added yet another title to the long list of diverse roles each has filled with the Vermont family-owned property management and real estate firm over the years: Licensed Real Estate Sales Associate. The two new Realtors work out of TPW's Manchester office at 4903 Main Street in Manchester Center.
Kovac joined TPW Management in 2007 as a field technician and has worn many hats since then, including Maintenance Manager, Portfolio Manager, Regional Operations Manager, and Director of Information Systems. A member of the Community Associations Institute and a Certified Manager of Community Associations, Kovac is a liaison to the board of directors of homeowner associations for both second home and primary home communities in Vermont. He holds a master's degree in economics and social sciences from Trenčianska Univerzita, Slovakia, and has a background in mortgage banking.
"I joined the TPW team on their quest to grow the company through innovative technology, increased efficiency, and superior customer service," says Kovac. "I like to be challenged and try things outside of my comfort zone—there is always something exciting around every corner!"
Carroccio earned a structural engineering degree from Purdue University and went on to build experience in commercial and residential property management, asset planning, maintenance, building construction, design, and civil engineering before joining the family business. "After growing up in this technical consulting firm that my parents started more than 25 years ago, it has been exciting to help TPW expand into real estate sales and vacation rentals over the past several years," he says. "For me, becoming a licensed real estate sales associate is one more way I can help our customers."
Kovac and Carroccio have deep roots in the community—both are raising young families in Manchester and are active in many different activities and service organizations. Principal Broker Annie Bessette welcomes the additional skills they bring to TPW Real Estate in their new roles as licensed Realtors: "As we continue to grow our team, I am thrilled to have Paul and Marek bring their expertise with so many of the different facets of real estate into their new professional designation as Licensed Sales Associates. Their experience in property management will benefit buyers and sellers of commercial as well as residential listings, and I know clients will love their infectious energy and enthusiasm!"
