With more than 40 years of property management experience and a strong record of industry leadership, Scott Reithel was the obvious choice for recognition from the National Affordable Housing Management Association (NAHMA).
NAHMA bestowed Reithel, who joined CHP as Vice President of Property Management in 2009 and will be retiring from the nonprofit at the end of the year, with an exclusive Member Emeritus Award during its October meeting in Washington, D.C. This award honors Reithel for his long-term service and commitment to NAHMA and the affordable housing industry.
“Scott has been dedicated to the property management field throughout his career, and this recent recognition is well deserved,” said Andy Hall, Chief Operating Officer at CHP. “While Scott will be retiring from CHP at the end of the year, we can’t thank him enough for his service to our organization and the affordable housing industry. We will miss him.”
Reithel has served NAHMA in many roles over the years, including board member, officer, president, and chair of numerous committees. He also served as the vice president of the NAHMA Educational Foundation and is a certified member of the Institute of Real Estate Management. Reithel received the NAHMA President’s Excellence Award in 2016 and won the Membership Recruitment Award on multiple occasions. He was also involved in the Midwest Affordable Housing Management Association, where he was a three-time past president and board member.
Prior to joining CHP, Reithel had an extensive multifamily property management career for several national and regional property management companies. His experience included affordable and market-rate housing throughout the United States.
Reithel graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, New York, with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and social work, and he attended the University of New York at Albany studying towards his master’s in social work. He has been a property management instructor with the Milwaukee Area Technical College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and a guest lecturer at Virginia Tech.
Reithel has also received national recognition awards from the Eli Lily drug company and the National Mental Health Association, as well as the Milwaukee Ovation Award for his work in developing housing and programs for persons with mental illness. In addition, he has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for his fair housing work.
