The Donaldson Group Announces Executive Restructuring

Under this new organization, our executive leadership will focus on training our management teams to achieve our strategic goals and those of our clients

The Donaldson Group, LLC (TDG) of Rockville, MD has announced an executive restructuring designed to focus on relationships, customers, and solutions in order to provide its clients with greater value and take advantage of anticipated growth opportunities. The restructuring involved promoting and hiring several executives:

  • Carlton Einsel, who previously served as Executive Vice President, is now TDG’s President.
  • TDG’s founder and former President, Walter Donaldson is now CEO.
  • Scott Jones has joined TDG to serve as Senior Vice President of Property Management. With over 30 years of multifamily management experience, Mr. Jones previously was CEO of Edgewood Management Corp. of Germantown, MD.
  • John Majeski, whose prior position was Vice President and Director of Acquisitions, is now Senior Vice President of Acquisitions and Business Development.
  • Scott Altman is Senior Vice President of Asset Management, having served previously as Senior Vice President and Director of Property and Construction Management.
  • Michelle Heim is the firm’s new marketing director. She joins TDG from The Apartments of St. Charles (MD), where she worked as marketing manager and leasing manager.

“Under this new organization, our executive leadership will focus on training our management teams to achieve our strategic goals and those of our clients, rather than relying simply on the old model of service, performance, reporting, and responding to change,” explained Mr. Einsel.

As another aspect of the restructuring, TDG is expanding its business to include the management of affordable housing, including Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) properties. TDG recently took over the management of three rental apartment communities in Ohio, all of which are financed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Mr. Jones brings TDG extensive experience in this specialized type of multifamily property management, noted Mr. Einsel.
