Name Change Part of North American Rebranding Effort Highlighting National Reach and Personalized Local Service
FOREST HILL, MD (June 27, 2013) – The corporate headquarters of FirstService Residential has announced that its subsidiary, Wentworth Property Management, has been renamed FirstService Residential. This name change is part of FirstService Residential’s national rebranding effort, which took effect on June 27, 2013.
FirstService Residential is the largest manager of residential communities in North America, overseeing more than 6,000 properties and over 1.5 million residential units. The former Wentworth Property Management, an established property management leader in the Mid-Atlantic/Carolinas region, manages a client portfolio of over 700 communities, including more than 50 located in the Maryland and Delaware markets. The company became a subsidiary of FirstService Residential in 1997.
“The success of our local operation, including the ways in which we service our clients, has benefited significantly from our longstanding partnership with FirstService Residential,” said Trent Harrison, president of FirstService Residential Maryland/Delaware. “This rebranding provides us with the opportunity to offer even more value to our clients through increased brand recognition, enhanced sharing of best practices, and the ability to leverage our national real estate management platform.” 
Added Michael Mendillo, formerly CEO of Wentworth Property Management and now president of FirstService Residential’s Mid-Atlantic/Carolinas region, “One of the many ways FirstService Residential stands apart in this market is our unique ability to combine the best of both worlds – our comprehensive corporate resources and the deft personal touch, local leadership and deep market expertise our individual property management companies bring to bear.”
