Here’s what other board members said about Bobbie’s work ethic:
“I would like to let you all know how valuable an on-site Manager is not only for this incident but for all the problems that have happened.” – Kevin Stern
“As always thank you for doing the right thing for the property, these are the types of intangible things on-site property management allow. And more so a manager who cares and shows initiative for the property and those that live there. Those are very big shoes to fill.” – Todd Phillips

Assistant Chief Engineer, The Martin
Eugene Litviak is the newly appointed assistant chief engineer at The Martin. A shimmering silhouette of sheer glass, The Martin is a 45-story high-rise located in midtown between the downtown area and the Strip. Eugene says he's passionate about "building great relationships with vendors, our residents and other associates."
But you'll be surprised to learn about his superpower.
Eugene has worked in building maintenance since 1990, becoming attracted to the industry after taking shop classes in high school. His thirst for knowledge led him to become certified in HVAC and welding and eventually to become a licensed electronics engineer.
Before coming to FirstService Residential, Eugene worked for a warehouse management company where he had HVAC responsibility for a portfolio of warehouse buildings. A friend told him about an opening here in maintenance, and he’s been with the company ever since—more than 10 years.
Originally from Chicago, Eugene and his charming wife have been married for 23 years and have two sons. Spending time vacationing with family (Disneyworld in Orlando is his most memorable trip) and fishing are two of Eugene’s favorite past times.
