AMS, PCAM, Vice President
Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Washington DC, West Virginia & Western New York
Robert Small is vice president of homeowner association (HOA) banking for clients in Western New York, Washington, D.C., Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia.
Since joining Alliance Association Bank in 2012, Mr. Small has helped homeowner association and management company clients create new efficiencies while growing their businesses. In addition to the financial tools and services required by the industry, Small also provides clients with the benefit of his years working in community management.
After receiving his Bachelor of Science in Communications from Radford University, Small went to work for his family's association management company in Richmond, Virginia. He earned valuable experience managing portfolios for a wide-range of community associations.
In 2001, Mr. Small and his family split from their business partner and created a new management firm. Although the company began with eleven association clients, the client base grew to 80 associations due in part to Small's excellent reputation in the region and his ability to adapt to new technologies and strategies.
Mr. Small joined Alliance Association Bank after selling his share in the family community management business. As a result of the great experience he had as a customer of Alliance Association Bank, he chose to expand his career and become a team member at Alliance Association Bank.
Mr. Small is certified as both an Association Management Specialist (AMS) and Professional Community Association Manager (PCAM).
