MAY Management Services

Diamond Level Winner—Management Companies
(Winner 2023 and five previous RCA wins)

     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 serving premier communities in the area. 

      It was Annie Marks, founder 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 into 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 2021 Catie Marks entered the fold and joined MAY’s executive team as president. A lifetime of preparation suited her well, and she hit the ground running. The women-led team is not only passionate about the services they provide but 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 celebrates its 35th year in 2023 and continues to expand. The firm remains steadfast in its commitment to providing premier association management services and unparalleled experiences for both board members and residents alike. The year 2023 will be no exception to the decades-long successes of MAY.
