One key thing that guides Paul Mengert, AMG (Association Management Group) chief executive officer (CEO), in his life, it is that giving back to their community is among the most important things any person can do. Paul founded AMG way back in 1984 and he did so in his hometown of Greensboro, North Carolina, because that community had given him so much and he wanted to provide them with an economic boost the best way he could.

There is a lot more to Paul Mengert than founding and serving as the CEO of a successful firm. Take his education, for instance. Paul Mengert majored in Political Science and Communications at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro and he then worked to gain certification as a Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) in 1990. He then followed that up by graduating with a degree from Harvard Business School in 2005. He’s not just a student, of course; his experience includes a lot of teaching, as well, because that’s a great way to give back. One such position was his position with the national senior faculty for the Community Associations Institute.

For Paul Mengert, AMG leadership is simply the best part of his life; it’s certainly not all of it. He also serves as President of the Carolinas Chapter of the Community Associations Institute, for which he gives back by teaching CLE classes geared to those who work with homeowner’s associations. These classes are approved as continuing education credits by such diverse groups as the California Department of Real Estate, as well as the South Carolina Department of Real Estate and, of course, the North Carolina Board of Realtors, among others.
