President

John obtained his CPA certification in 1986, his MBA in 1998 and holds the CMCA and AMS certifications from CAI. He began his career in public accounting before moving into the private sector about four years later. In 2001, John saw the need for a high-performing real estate and HOA management company in the Kentucky area which led to the founding of what is now Paragon Management Group.
