Las Vegas (April 10, 2020) – Pinnacle, one of the nation’s leading multifamily management firms, announced today the promotion of Debra Kopolow to senior vice president. In this role she oversees a portfolio of 25,000 apartment homes across Nevada and Arizona.
Kopolow joined Pinnacle over 30 years ago as one of the company’s first managers in the Southwest region. With relatively little exposure in the multifamily industry at her time of hire, she now operates the largest regional hub in the company with more than 19,500 units in Las Vegas alone. Kopolow also has 14 regional operators and an overall head count of more than 600 team members in her Southwest region today.
“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Deb Kopolow for my entire career and I admire how she translates her zest for life into incredible performance,” said Executive Vice President, Eric Schwabe. “Her enthusiasm has become a part of our company’s fabric, and she has helped shape our culture as a leader, a cheerleader to her team, and an icon in the industry.”
Kopolow’s passion for multifamily housing shines through her team members who take the stage at every Nevada State Apartment Association awards ceremony and maintenance competition. Known for their spirit, it is customary for up to 80 staff members to show up in solidarity of each nominee or contestant on the recognition platform.
Commitment is another common denominator on Kopolow’s team. Her highly engaging leadership style and desire to helping others succeed has earned loyalty. The average length of tenure in her region is 10 years.
Rick Graf, Pinnacle’s president & CEO, said, “Team building is undoubtedly one of the strengths we admire about Deb. In addition to her deep focus on mentorship, her portfolio consistently outperforms the market from both an income and service perspective.”
Kopolow specializes in strategic financial planning, team building, market analysis, and maximizing clients’ return on investment. She is a Certified Property Manager (CPM®) and is active in the Nevada State Apartment Association.
