Lincoln Military Housing (LMH), a partner to the U.S. Army for the construction and management of on-base housing at Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM), announces Shannon Ramos as the new Area Vice President (AVP) for the West Army Region.
Mrs. Ramos brings along over 17 years of Public-Private Venture (PPV) experience. As AVP, she will oversee operations for 5,161 military family homes in the greater Tacoma area. Ramos began her Property Management career more than 20 years ago as a conventional property manager in northern California, where she held regional and general management roles to develop and maintain large residential portfolios. As a veteran military spouse, Ramos brings experiences navigating the military community that will undoubtedly serve her well in her role as an AVP.
"Ramos's understanding of the needs of military families, coupled with her dedication to supporting those who serve, makes her an invaluable addition to the LMH team," said Gail Miller, VP of Special Projects for LMH.
Ramos shifted her focus to the PPV industry in 2004. Since then, she has worked diligently to establish and maintain strong working relationships with leadership, government partners, and other stakeholders. In her most recent role as Director of Operations with Hunt Companies, she managed the daily operations of a 3,400 military home community in the Puget Sound region. This role included asset management and overseeing a preventative maintenance program. Her direct interaction with general contractors, architects, and construction and development teams helped implement new construction projects focusing on revitalization and design initiatives.
Ramos holds both a Certified Property Manager (CPM) and an Accredited Residential Manager (ARM) designation from the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM). In 2016, she served as the co-chair on the Privatized Military Housing Education Committee with the National Apartment Association. From 2013 to 2014, she was a member of the Executive Council of IREM, Chapter 27. Shannon is a certified Defense Property Manager I and II through the Military Privatization Housing Initiative (MPHI).
