Originally from New Jersey, I have lived in the neighborhood for 4 years. I have 2 children, Jeremy, 25 & Alexia, 7, and 2 dogs, Roscoe & Mika. I work as a Sr. Manager of Sales/Merchandising. I have served on the board for a little over a year as well as running the events for the community during the same time period. I volunteer at school and different organizations when time allows.
My background includes working in sales and accounting at private clubs/country clubs and for the last 15 years in intimate apparel. I have worked for Maidenform, Macy’s, Victoria’s Secret and now Hanesbrands. I deal with multimillion dollar sales budgets, negotiate with overseas vendors and resolve issues internally and with accounts on a daily basis in my current position.
Since I have been on the board we have made every effort to listen, communicate and to improve issues in our community. I think it is important to have the communication with both the residents as well as the Master Board in order to solve problems and maintain/improve our neighborhood. I believe in hearing what people have to say but also realize that we have rules and responsibilities in the HOA and as board members and need to work towards finding common solutions.
Since I have been on the board, we have reduced expenses in our landscaping, insurance and have tried to reach out to individuals directly that have concerns to get quick and reasonable resolutions. I would like to continue to be on the board to continue this work, protect our home values and give our neighborhood a true sense of community.
Warren Howard is a Kinderton home owner who lives on Bridgewater Drive. He is currently a retiree from NC Baptist Hospital. His experience on a board or other service organization: He owned his own company for 7 years. He also worked as a manager of a Pluming & Mechanical Shop at which time sat on several committees then retired after 24 years of service. Warren would like to serve on the Kinderton Board to better help our community and our neighbors.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Pfundstein and I reside on Parkview Lane, just up the hill from our lake.
By profession, I am an Information Technology Project Manager. From that point of view, over the last 30 years, I have obtained progressive levels of IT experience with a concentration in the last 15 years of leading, coordinating, and managing projects.
During my career, the ability to manage all phases of a project lifecycle were critical to achieve the goals of each business. Beginning with requests from stakeholders, I have the experience and skills to clearly understand requirements and translate those into meaningful deliverables.
From these first sentences, how does my background translate into assisting our single-family homeowners?
In my view, aside from being a wonderful place to live and raise families, Kinderton is our collective business, with defined goals, and vision. Being able to effectively listen and appreciate requests from our neighbors, while organizing demands and managing ongoing board duties, I believe my skill set will help our neighborhood obtain the levels of service and amenities that we all hope to achieve.
From a volunteer point of view, I have held the position of president with another HOA, where our second home resides on Lake Norman.
There are two main reasons I would like to serve on the Single-Family Board of Directors at Kinderton.
• With the single family home owner association representing the largest percentage of property in our neighborhood, it is paramount that all owners are heard, informed, and have the opportunity to engage the BOD.
• Having four separate home owner associations aligned under the master association, it would be extremely beneficial if the respective BOD had a clear line of sight into the successes and challenges of their peer HOAs.
In closing, I professionally strive to promote unity and provided guidance in managing teams.
My adherence to processes and methodologies helps to produce consistent, repeatable results.
With your support, I hope to assist all of you by serving within our KV community.
