HPN Select is pleased to announce that Mark Vernon has been named president of the recently launched member-owned group purchasing collaborative. Vernon comes to HPN Select with extensive experience in the operations and management of multi-family residential properties, including procurement and purchasing, revenue and expense management, and the oversight and implementation of strategic plans for significant portfolios of real estate assets.
Most recently, Vernon served as Vice President of Ancillary Services at Bell Partners in Greensboro NC. He was at Bell for more than ten years and, prior to that, held positions at Gables Residential, Pinnacle Realty, and AIMCO. Vernon succeeds Tony Miller, the Interim President responsible for launching the HPN Select business in 2015. We are very thankful for Miller’s leadership through this launch phase; he has been a great colleague and friend of the Housing Partnership Network.
Vernon will start on August 15, 2016 and will be based out of North Carolina. He will visit many Select members during his first few weeks.
