Gene Gomberg



An industry visionary and pioneer with nearly 40 years of hands-on property management experience, Gene Gomberg is the founding partner of The Continental Group, the largest residential property management company in the FirstService Residential Management portfolio.  During his career, he has developed a wide range of ground breaking concepts and products that have come to define the property management industry – and are commonly accepted as standard operating procedure today.

In his role as FirstService Residential Chairman, Gomberg is responsible for leading the organization’s acquisition process and collaborating on initiatives related to strategy, client relationships and business development. An involved and committed manager, he continuously seeks innovative ways to take both FirstService Residential and the property management industry to the next level, ensuring they deliver the highest standards for professionalism and customer service. As part of his commitment, Gomberg combines his passions for mentorship and sales by coaching and supporting his teams’ ongoing efforts to develop business and achieve corporate growth.

Gomberg strongly believes that a successful business results from mutually beneficial relationships, developed through a deep commitment and respect for every client, vendor and employee. This people-first philosophy, as well as the strong service culture he inspires and supports throughout FirstService Residential, are key to why so many employees who began with the company nearly four decades ago remain part of the FirstService Residential family today.
