Above all else in his business career and his life, Paul Mengert, AMG (Association Management Group) CEO, believes it is vitally important for everyone with means to give back to their community in whatever way they can. That can mean giving of yourself personally, or it can mean generating business activity and a larger tax base. To demonstrate his level of commitment to his native community of Greensboro, North Carolina, consider that was the a primary reason he located AMG there in the first place, when he established the firm in 1984.
These days, Paul Mengert, AMG leader, is a highly regarded national leader in the homeowners association management industry nationwide. This status is not just in the Carolinas, either. By staffing as many AMG class instruction positions with executives for various large companies, including those in high positions like managing partner, president, and even CEO, he has managed to build up his community in many ways. For one thing, in order to teach there, these highly paid executives have to move to Greensboro, which means they increase both the education and the wealth of the surrounding area. They bring their money, as well as their brainpower, which increases the ability of the community to deal with nearly any situation.
Paul Mengert is far more than the founder of AMG, a training and education firm. In fact, his lifelong commitment to education has always been impressive. In addition to teaching at AMG, Paul Mengert once 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 followed that up by graduating with a degree from Harvard Business School in 2005. He also was part of the national senior faculty for the Community Associations Institute.
