Name Change Part of North American Rebranding Effort Highlighting National Reach and Personalized Local Service
EATONTOWN, NJ (June 27, 2013) – The corporate headquarters of FirstService Residential has announced that its subsidiary, Wentworth Property Management, has been renamed FirstService Residential. This name change is part of FirstService Residential’s national rebranding effort, which took effect on June 27, 2013.
FirstService Residential is the largest manager of residential communities in North America, overseeing more than 6,000 properties and over 1.5 million residential units. The former Wentworth Property Management, an established property management leader in the Mid-Atlantic/Carolinas region, manages a client portfolio of more than 700 communities. It became a subsidiary of FirstService Residential in 1997.
"After participating in the growth and evolution of our organization from the beginning and over the last 25 years, it’s thrilling to be part of the next chapter working with an amazing team of high-rise experts,” said Arthur Bartikofsky, Senior Vice President High Rise Division NJ/PA.  “The team is now comprised of individuals, both locally and nationally, representing the collective knowledge of over 1,000 high rise communities across North America. We are very excited to take this knowledge back to every one of our clients."
Added Michael Mendillo, formerly CEO of Wentworth Property Management and now president of FirstService Residential’s Mid-Atlantic/Carolinas region, “What appealed to us from day one – FirstService Residential’s commitment to building relationships, delivering exceptional customer service and creating a true partnership – is still just as strong today.”
Mendillo also noted that the rebranding to FirstService Residential signifies a change in company name only, and all day-to-day operations will remain “business as usual.” Current property management teams will remain in place to service their existing customers, with added benefits gained from access to an expanded core of resources, combined purchasing power and shared expertise and best practices.
