American Management Services, Inc. opened its doors in 1996 to common interest management and has operated as a sole proprietorship until it was incorporated in May 2001. The principal of the company, Roger K. Hendricks, has been in the Common Interest Management industry since 1986 serving as a Large Scale Community Manager until 1996 when he opened the doors to his company.
The operating philosophy of the company until 2004 was to operate the business on a small scale. That is to say: keeping the management profile low while providing the client Association with a boutique style of service that would maintain long term relationships and company profitability.
Brenda Hendricks shortly thereafter took over the company as its Chief Executive Officer with Roger assuming a secondary role in operations. Brenda has since attained all of the industry certifications issued by the California Association of Community Managers and Community Associations Institute which include the prestigious Professional Community Association Manager PCAM® certification. In addition to running the company she has found additional time to pay back the industry by serving on the local Bay Area and Central California Chapter Board of Directors for CAI where she acquitted herself well during her tenure on the board. She is a recognized professional manager and leader in the Bay Area and continues to frequently participate fully in the education and social functions sponsored by both organizations.
The company is now in a forward growth position, seeking to expand its management base each year with quality communities that are committed to excellence. The company philosophy revolves around innovative and timely management practices and competitive prices that will provide the best services to the client homeowner and sustain, and if possible, improve the quality of life for all homeowners and their families.
