Plano’s RealManage Appoints New Chief Executive Officer

The company said Tim Haynes brings a wealth of experience in operations, client service, and technology to his new role as CEO.

Plano-based RealManage, one of the nation’s top community association management companies, has appointed Tim Haynes as its new chief executive officer.

Chris O’Neill, founder and the previous CEO of RealManage for 15 years, will continue to focus on cultivating M&A relationships and new business opportunities for RealManage, the company said. He remains a member of RealManage’s board of directors, a large shareholder, and a senior adviser to the company.

“When we hired Tim last year, we were looking for someone who would continue to evolve and shape our field operations, client experience, and technology strategy to drive the next phase of growth at RealManage. Tim has proven himself to be an exceptional leader, and we all believe that this is the right time to make this transition.” O’Neill said. “His extensive experience in operational leadership, coupled with his proven track record of success, will advance our vision as a best-in-class community association management company that helps community associations run like a business while acting like a neighbor.”

The company said Haynes brings a wealth of experience in operations, client service, and technology to his new role as CEO.

He joined RealManage last year as chief operating officer and has since focused his attention on leading RealManage’s operations nationwide and delivering industry-leading service for over 3,000 community association clients.

Expertise in property services

Before RealManage, Haynes was president and COO of JLL Building Services Network, a subsidiary of Jones Lang LaSalle, president and COO of American Home Shield (now FrontDoor), and senior vice president and CIO of ServiceMaster.

“I would like to thank Chris and the rest of the RealManage team for their continued support as I take on this important role.” Haynes said in a statement. “In the 13 months that I have been a part of RealManage, it has been clear to me from the beginning that the company’s success over the past 20 years has been primarily driven by our extraordinary employees. I truly believe that our people, combined with our commitment to innovation, technology, and client service will be the key to our future success.”

The company said that as CEO, Haynes will play a critical role in ensuring RealManage continues to deliver exceptional service to its clients while making investments in technology, people, and critical business functions to drive growth and expansion.

RealManage said his appointment comes at a time when the company is experiencing unprecedented momentum, and his leadership and expertise will be essential in guiding RealManage through its next phase of growth.

RealManage, one of the largest and fastest-growing association management companies in the nation, offers innovative management services to community associations of all types and sizes, including homeowner associations (HOAs), condominium associations, cooperatives, municipal utility districts, and large master-planned communities.
