Rob G. Risman

President and CEO
 
Growing up in a family-owned business, you enter into the work of that business at a young, impressionable age. Son of CMI founder William Burton Risman, Rob Risman recalls “working cleaning parking garages over the summer and inspecting properties with my dad on the weekends.” After an undergraduate education at Tulane University followed by the University of Miami School of Law, where he received his JD, he rejoined the family business in Michigan working on a large development project. He left to practice real estate law in New York City, but returned home delighted to once again join the CMI team.
 
Rob worked his way through all aspects of the business from acquisitions to property management ending with his promotion to President of CMI in 1995. He is a licensed real estate broker in the State of Ohio. He knows this business first hand.
 
Today with the love and support of his wife Trish and his two sons Nathan and Noah, he looks to the future of Burton Carol Management. “I believe that we are an exceptional organization because of our core principles of integrity and hard work,” a theme which is carried through the entire organization.

Joy Anzalone

Executive Vice President and COO

There is no denying that Joy, a self-identified workaholic, is one of the most dedicated and tireless people you'll ever meet.  These traits have served her well from her early years of being a New York Times delivery person through her many years with CMI.

Joy graduated from Kent State University with a BA degree in Journalism with plans to become a reporter. Real life took a few turns though, and in 1982 Joy began her CMI career as a housekeeper following her husband Tony's employment in the Hotel Division.  With the encouragement of both Tony and her beloved father who served as Joy's greatest inspiration, Joy worked her way up through a series of well-earned promotions and with the support and guidance of Bill Risman who Joy says "took me under his wing as my mentor and role model."  In 1995, she was asked  to take the helm as the companies COO. Joy is frequently asked to share her experience through educational and motivational speaking engagements both locally and nationally.

Joy has worked diligently, alongside Rob Risman, to define the future of Burton Carol Management after the culmination of years of planning and strategizing for greatness. When not at work, Joy enjoys time with her husband Tony and their poodle Pumpkin-- gardening, cooking and enjoying life together. Looking to the future Joy sums it up when she says, "there is no stopping us now."

Roger Katz

Corporate Counsel and CFO
 
Roger is happy that Burton Carol Management is a quick 7 minute drive from his home leaving more time to spend with his wife, Sue. However, when he joined the staff at CMI in 1995, it was not about location, but opportunity and a long term career. Roger brought valuable skills as both an attorney and a CPA having received his BS from the Ohio State University and his JD from Cleveland Marshall College of Law. Following his graduation he began his career as a public accountant. CMI, now Burton Carol Management is the first, and only, family-owned business he has worked for.

Roger enjoys the diversity of his work and is honored to have been instrumental in the ownership restructure that brought about Burton Carol Management. In his own words, “working on the birth of a new business enterprise is the most exciting work experience of them all.” He is looking forward to working with both Rob Risman and Joy Anzalone, as they explore new business opportunities for Burton Carol.

John Petryshin

Vice President, Director of Property Operations, Ohio
 
After leaving the Navy, John returned to his hometown of Cleveland and attended the West Side Institute of Technology’s HVAC Building Engineer Program, graduating in 1983. He joined the CMI team in 1985, brought onboard as a commercial HVAC technician. Working with Joy Anzalone from day one, he believes that he could not have grown to his current position of Vice President without her mentoring and continued input and guidance.
 
Today, he oversees the day-to-day management of all Ohio properties having worked in almost every capacity of property management. John takes pride in the fact that he is a hands-on leader that spends more time on his properties than he does in the office. This is because he believes that he has to be viewing the properties daily as the customers do--and you cannot do that from a desk. He is a lead by example manager--setting the bar for hard work and tireless efforts!
 
John is a family man who loves spending time with his “unbelievable” wife Joanne and “incredible” son Joe who he calls his best friends. He also values his relationships with his co-workers because “We are all like family here.” When asked to describe Burton Carol Management two words came to mind easily-- tradition and integrity! These are the words John uses explaining that “the company cares about people first and, from that, results follow.”

Joseph W. Kincaid

Vice President, Director of Property Operations, Michigan
 
Many people don’t know that Joseph began his career with CMI in 1986 as a groundskeeper. Rising up in the ranks through a series of promotions, as is a common story at CMI, he has crossed over from maintenance to management. Throughout his years with the company he has attended, participated in and presented at numerous leasing, marketing and fair housing seminars; always looking for ways to expand the talents he brings to his work.

Joseph enjoys his life in Michigan with wife Kelly, son Brandon, daughter Courtney, and family pets Max and Sammy. He takes in the natural beauty of the state through family camping trips and driving his collectors ‘72 Lemans.
 
Reflecting over his time with CMI, Joseph takes pride in having worked diligently at establishing high standards for the maintenance of the properties and the service they provided to the residents. Pondering the future he says “I am looking forward to advancing those efforts with Burton Carol Management as we expand our portfolio.”

Marcia Hayward

Vice President, Director of Property Operations, Florida
 
Marcia's rise from an entry-level position in 1984 to Vice President in charge of the company's Florida Apartment Division is a common “promote from within” theme at Burton Carol Management.

Her path has had one constant, and that was Joy Anzalone who supervised her in the hotel division but then moved to the apartment division in 1990. "I loved working with Joy and felt as though I was getting an unwelcomed divorce".

Thankfully that did not occur and when the Florida Division needed new leadership in 1993 the goal was to take one of the best proven leaders to move the furthest away from the corporate office. Marcia moved to Florida along with her husband Randy, also a long term company associate, and her two children Kim and Kyle.

Marcia looks forward to many more years of working toward new endeavors and growing the Florida portfolio. When she is not working she is enjoying the sunshine on her 51 foot houseboat, playing with her grandson Demitris and cultivating her new hobby of exotic plants!

David King

General Counsel
 
When David is not kicking back, enjoying a great read, particularly Post World War II U.S. historical fiction, he is hard at work at Burton Carol Management. He has held his position of General Counsel since 1994 when he was hired by Consolidated Management Inc./Realtek Industries Inc. after serving as outside counsel for them on numerous real estate projects over the years. He was certainly well-equipped for the job of becoming in-house counsel. He completed his undergraduate work at the University of Wisconsin and continued on to graduate from The George Washington University School of Law. Following that he entered private practice, as counsel to a publically-owned REIT which gave him the vast experience that would ultimately serve him well for his future career with CMI. David loves his work with Burton Carol Management because he looks forward to, “continuing the work of growing a company with the people I enjoy.”
