When William (Bill) Bransky joined The Community Builders, Inc. (TCB) as a Portfolio Manager in 2006, he brought with him a wealth of skill, knowledge and experience. Mr. Bransky has been working in the affordable housing industry for over 30 years. His current portfolio includes properties from Central and Western Massachusetts, the Cape Cod area and New York. Mr. Bransky's expertise and diverse skills have led him to many new and struggling properties outside of his portfolio in an effort to strengthen the performance of TCB’s Property Management department.
In 1977, after serving four years in the United States Army, Mr. Bransky began his career as a maintenance technician with Beacon Residential Management. After honing his skills in the maintenance department, he soon became a Maintenance Supervisor with management potential. Applying his maintenance savvy to a management position, Mr. Bransky took a two year leadership course and began his career as an administrative housing professional. This ground floor knowledge of housing gives him an enormous insight and level of understanding on day to day operations at the corporate level. Given his background, Mr. Bransky’s strengths lie in organizing and re-directing maintenance departments, procedures and effectiveness. He is the go-to person for REAC preparation and currently sits on the AMP committee at TCB which is re-directing the future of facilities departments at the company.
At his tenure at Beacon Residential, Mr. Bransky constantly broke new ground both as an individual and on behalf of the company. He was one of the first Managers to implement a Plan of Action (POA) property for a 500-unit development in Springfield and then later for Winn Management in Worcester. This was such a complex program, that less than 20 were developed in the country and the program was soon halted for new developments.
In the early 1990’s, Community Policing was a new concept to the region, especially to the City of Springfield, Massachusetts. Mr. Bransky was the manager of a 500-unit subsidized multi-family development located in the Sixteen Acres section of Springfield. Through applying for and securing a $250,000 Safe Neighborhood Grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, Mr. Bransky implemented several capital and safety improvements on the 500 unit property. Additionally, he assisted the Police Department in creating one of the first Community Policing substations in the area on the property. This was a coup for the troubled property and greater Sixteen Acres Community.
Mr. Bransky was named NEAHMA Manager of the Year in 1987 and has been a member of both the Springfield and Worcester Chamber of Commerce. He has extensive knowledge of a multitude of housing programs including Section 8, Section 236, Section 202’s, PRACS and LIHTC (Certified CP12 via Spectrum enterprises). Because of his wealth of knowledge, management style, and overall effectiveness, Mr. Bransky has mentored new employees at each one of his companies. His problem solving skills and ability to motivate employees to work as a team and grow as an individual have turned numerous troubled properties into thriving communities over the years for Beacon Residential Management, Winn Management and The Community Builders.Contact:
