MAY Management Services Inc., founded in 1988, is renowned for providing first-rate association management services throughout Northeast Florida. Initially centered in Ponte Vedra Beach, MAY has expanded rapidly with bases of operation in St. Johns and the five surrounding counties to meet the demands of servicing premier communities in the area.
It was Annie Marks, the sole owner of MAY, who recognized early in the company’s expansion campaign that a strong focus on accounting and financials would pilot MAY to the top. As such, MAY’s expertise with respect to association financials (e.g., budgeting, billing, expense control, and collections) and continued investments in internal accounting systems have allowed the company to rapidly expand without sacrificing client support, helping MAY become the leading management firm in the area.
In addition to its commitment to financial support, under Marks’ leadership, MAY has expanded its service offerings to clients including, but not limited to, developing continuing education courses for association board and committee members and establishing some of the first association architectural control programs in the market. Through the years, MAY has been able to establish significant relationships with national development firms and developers looking to strike ground in the market. Developers now regularly rely on MAY’s consulting services at all stages of community development.
In 2015, Catie Marks entered the fold and joined MAY’s executive team. As Annie’s daughter, a lifetime of preparation suited her well as Catie hit the ground running. The mother-daughter team is not only passionate about the services they provide but also understands the responsibilities and level of trust their clients bestow upon MAY. The entire MAY team feeds off of this and is committed to remaining one of the top firms in the business.
MAY celebrated its 32nd year in 2020 and continues to expand. By regularly investing in its personnel and technology as well as expanding its portfolio of services, they are able to take on new clients without sacrificing any commitment to their current clients.
