Tracie Blankenship, CMCA, AMS, PCAM, a native Californian, has managed communities for more than 20 years in her home state. As Accell’s president, she oversees the California team and manages growth operations.
Blankenship started her community association career as a part-time assistant and rose through the ranks. Her roles supported new large-scale master-planned developments and communities including condominiums, single-family homes and mixed-use properties. Blankenship later led regional office teams throughout California.
For Keystone Pacific Property Management, she was regional manager for an office in the Inland Empire before being promoted to director of business development and sales, a role in which she helped developers establish new communities.
Her leadership with FirstService Residential spanned 10 years. As sales director, she and her staff handled sales in the San Francisco and San Diego areas, acquiring 50 to 60 new clients annually. She also ran an office in Santa Clarita and was named vice president of community management, overseeing a 30-employee Orange County team that managed 50 clients.
For the past 18 months, she served as an on-site general manager.
In 2012, Blankenship earned the Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM) designation through the Community Associations Institute, an international membership organization dedicated to building better communities. She also holds the Certified Manager of Community Associations (CMCA) and Association Management Specialist (AMS) designations.
Blankenship says she considers it an honor to be included in the very small group of PCAM designees around the country.
Away from the office, Blankenship is a proud mother of two who enjoys spending time with family and at the ocean. She likes water sports and boating, art, music, golf and tennis. She also describes herself as someone who has a heart for giving back; she volunteers whenever she can.
Blankenship said she feels fortunate to share her passion for the industry and its growth with Accell’s staff and clients.
