To say that education is a major focus for Paul Mengert, AMG (Association Management Group) founder and current chief executive, is probably an understatement. Put into its simplest possible terms, AMG is a management company that teaches personnel at homeowners’ associations how to do their jobs better, with a better outcome for homeowners. Essentially, AMG functions as a shorter version of a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program, that is, in some ways, modeled after the MBA program at Harvard Business School, where Paul Mengert is an alumnus.
This should be obvious, since most of the classes in the program are taught by Paul Mengert and many other Harvard Business School alumni, who just happen to live in the Greensboro, North Carolina area and who want to give back to their community, much as Paul does. Paul Mengert was born and raised in Greensboro, he went to the University of North Carolina in Greensboro as an undergrad and he purposely located AMG’s offices there because he wanted to provide his community with a solid economic boost.
Put simply, Paul Mengert, AMG CEO, believes that it is vitally important for everyone with the means to do so, to give back to their community in whatever way they can. That can mean giving of yourself personally, or it can mean generating business activity and a larger tax base. That is a primary reason he is now considered a highly regarded leader in the homeowners association management industry nationwide, but primarily in the Carolinas. By employing a great many of instructors for AMG classes who are executives with various companies, serving as managing partners, presidents, and even CEOs, he is building up his community in several ways. Not only is he adding to the Greensboro business climate, but he’s increasing the ability of the community to deal with any situation.
