Nashville, TN. (March 08, 2021) — Michael Hagewood — a Community Association Manager for FirstService Residential, North America’s property management leader — has been elected the next president of the Tennessee chapter of Community Associations Institute (CAI).

Hagewood is the onsite manager for The Rhythm at Music Row, an upscale, mixed-use high-rise condominium development in Nashville’s Music Row neighborhood, managed by FirstService Residential. He has been a member of CAI nearly nine years, having served on the Tennessee chapter’s Welcoming Committee, Social Committee, and also as Secretary. As well as currently serving as President Elect, he chairs the Membership Committee. CAI Tennessee strives to enhance the quality of community association living through education, legal advocacy, professional development, and networking opportunities.

“I feel my role will hit at a perfect time to vigorously bring the chapter back,” Hagewood said. His term as president will most likely overlap with business and public reopening from the COVID pandemic. “During my many years on the Social Committee, members looked forward to our social events and raved about their success. I plan to bring that enthusiasm to the monthly luncheons and networking events, as well as build our membership.”

Hagewood started his career in association management as a portfolio manager in 2009, then joined FirstService Residential in 2011, tasked with managing The Viridian in the heart of downtown Nashville. Earlier in his career, Hagewood devoted more than 10 years to hospitality management, including stints at Nashville’s Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, Hotel Preston, and the Renaissance Hotel in St. Louis. He also served on the Board and as President of the Nashville Urban Residents Association. When not at work, he will usually be found boating, jet skiing and fishing on Kentucky Lake.
