Associa Celebrates 40 Years as the Industry Leader

May 09, 2019

Dallas, TX – May 9, 2019 – Associa, the industry’s largest and most recognized community management company, is proud to celebrate 40 years of providing association management and lifestyle services to communities and residents worldwide. To commemorate this special occasion, Associa will hold a companywide commemoration ceremony, celebration, and townhall on May 9, 2019.

In 1979, Associa was founded on chairman and CEO John Carona’s entrepreneurial spirit, unwavering passion, and sheer determination. But the dream began many years earlier when a 12-year-old boy bought a green Lawn-Boy mower and started his very first business endeavor. That innovative enterprise—and now legendary story—led to the formation of the company we all know today: Associa. The company has grown into the largest residential community management firm in the nation, acquiring more than 150 companies in the past 20 years, with 200 branch offices in the United States, Canada, and Mexico that provide management services to nearly 5 million residents.

“Associa has achieved this milestone through our core values, company pillars, the hard work of our employees, and our one-of-a-kind customer service,” stated John Carona, Associa chairman and chief executive officer. “We have dedicated ourselves to 40 years of providing industry-leading services, creating state-of-the-art technology solutions, developing client support systems, and facilitating employee education and training. But the thing that makes Associa truly special is the family spirit that our team embodies and delivers to each and every resident we serve. I am excited to celebrate with our communities, clients, and employees as we look forward to the next 40 years.”

With more than 200 branch offices across North America, Associa delivers unsurpassed management and lifestyle services to nearly five million residents worldwide. Our 10,000+ team members lead the industry with unrivaled education, expertise, and trailblazing innovation. For more than 40 years, Associa has provided solutions designed to help communities achieve their vision. To learn more, visit
