Mac-Gray Names Donald Baumann as Vice President, Business Development
WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 12
WALTHAM, Mass., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Mac-Gray Corporation (NYSE:
TUC), the nation's premier provider of laundry facilities management services
to multi-unit housing locations, today announced that Donald G. Baumann, Jr.
has joined the company as Vice President, Business Development.
With more than 25 years of diversified experience, Mr. Baumann was recently
Senior Vice President of Apartment Investment and Management Company (AIMCO).
In this position Mr. Baumann was responsible for managing the Income
Development Department, focusing on driving new income sources to the Trust
through various ancillary and energy-related corporate alliances, including
laundry-equipment contractors such as Mac-Gray. Prior to AIMCO, Mr. Bauman
worked for seven years at Camden Property Trust, where he held a similar role.
"Mac-Gray has known and worked with Don Baumann for many years, and we are
excited to have him join our organization," said Neil MacLellan, Executive
Vice-President of Sales. "The multi-family housing market represents
approximately 85% of our revenue base, and national REIT's and multi-state
property owners are a key subset of that market. Don has an extensive
background in multi-family business development, real estate asset management,
banking and telecommunications. He will bring valuable insight to the company
and our efforts to better meet the needs of our clients and grow our business
in the markets we serve. The timing of his recruitment and appointment
coincides with improving market conditions as multiple indicators seem to be
suggesting that the worst of the multi-housing vacancy crisis that has
dominated our markets for the past two years might be behind us."
Mr. Baumann received his B.S. from Texas A&M University. He is a registered
Colorado Real Estate Broker and is an active member of the Construction
Industry Advisory Council at Texas A&M.
