Southern Community Services (SCS), a homeowner association management firm serving more than 160 communities across the Carolinas, including Lake Carolina in Columbia, Park West in Charleston and Foxwood Hills in the Upstate, has welcomed a new CEO, Ken Tamsin, PCAM®, CMCA®, AMS®, to the executive team.
Tamsin most recently served as the onsite community manager at The Reserve at Lake Keowee in the Upstate, after having worked for SCS in the Midlands as the community manager at Lake Carolina. Prior to becoming involved in homeowner association management, Tamsin worked in the banking industry in Massachusetts. He is a graduate of the New England School of Banking at Williams College, and he attended Southern Connecticut State University, Manchester Community College, the University of Massachusetts and Slippery Rock State University in Pennsylvania.
SCS will continue to be directed by owners Larry Ridlehoover, CMCA®, AMS®, PCAM®, president and co-principal, and Chuck Munn, vice president and co-principal. The executive team is rounded out by Steven Wagner, CMCA®, vice president of operations and finance; Mary Helen Settle, CMCA®, AMS®, PCAM®, vice president, Upstate region; and Jessica Turner, CMCA®, AMS®, vice president, Charleston region.
“Ken was one of the first candidates to come to mind when we began our search process for a chief executive officer,” notes Ridlehoover. “When he worked for SCS previously, he was a very diligent, hard-working community manager who was highly respected by his staff and colleagues as well as by the HOA board members and residents he served. We are so pleased that a person of such integrity is taking the helm of our leadership team.”
“I am pleased to be a part of such an outstanding organization, whose mission and core values mirror my own,” notes Tamsin. “I look forward to applying my ‘servant leadership’ philosophy to the benefit of the members of the SCS team and the communities that they support.”
