Derek's Career at Aspen

Derek Ziegler Career Path

I started with Aspen Square Management 18 years ago, where I was the Maintenance Supervisor of a property in Raleigh, NC. This property was challenging in many ways, specifically, underground boiler issues. I was provided the opportunity to give my recommendations and have the recommendations used to help correct the issues with these underground boiler systems. After this property, I was the Start-Up Foreman at Berkshire Manor West. After completion of this project, I advanced to the District Maintenance Foreman role for the North Carolina portfolio. In 2010, I was offered an opportunity to take over a larger and more challenging portfolio in Atlanta, GA. Since then, I have remained in charge of the Atlanta portfolio but have since taken over several properties in South Carolina as well. Throughout my journey with Aspen Square Management, I have been able to learn many things, I have found that one of my biggest strengths is with recruiting. Recently, I have been able to return to the technical school in which I graduated to recruit new talent, this has been a successful endeavor for the Atlanta portfolio, as well as, Aspen Square Management. Within Aspen Square Management, I look forward to any opportunities that may continue to come my way.
