New partner announced at The Connor Group.

‘Josh has influenced the nation’

He’s packed his bags four times in four years – relocating to Austin, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and now Phoenix. And if you called this associate and asked him to travel to the opposite side of the country as fast as he could to help another market, he’d say yes in a heartbeat.

He always does. And always will.

It’s that ownership mentality that earned Josh Lloyd a very well-deserved promotion to partner today at the Cincinnati, Dayton and Indianapolis Awards Breakfast, becoming our 68th partner. Partnership at The Connor Group is open to associates at any level within the organization. Partners earn an equity ownership in The Connor Group and its properties.

“Josh has influenced the nation,” partner and regional head Sal Gracia said. “No matter what the objective, you hit it. You exceed it. You do whatever it takes.”

Josh has done grounds, painted apartments and, most recently, is our lead tech at The Aston Scottsdale in Phoenix. He moved there to help us open our 18th market this summer. Under the wing of partner and senior regional trainer Rob Murray, Josh sharpened his service skills and ability to lead and develop others.

“I can remember when you started as a turn tech. I trained you. You knocked all those buckets of paint over. You got paint everywhere. But you kept learning. You never gave up,” said Rob. “That’s being relentless.

“Having Josh side by side with me for the last eight months has been an awesome experience.”

Over his career, Josh has proven to deliver the customer service we all strive for. “Whether it’s 4:00 in the morning, midnight or 7:00 a.m. – he always has a smile on his face and makes sure our residents are taken care of,” said senior director Melissa Demoulin.

Even before becoming an associate, Josh was responding to Connor Group emergencies. He worked alongside his dad, CEO Bob Lloyd and our Texas associates to clean up damages over a holiday weekend in 2015. Heavy storms flooded four apartments, broke fifteen windows and left trees scattered like toothpicks across Knightsbridge in Dallas.

Not even on the payroll, Josh rolled up his sleeves and helped.

“Your mom and I are so proud of what you’ve already accomplished, Josh. Remember, I’ve been telling you your whole life, you are going to change the world for the better,” said Bob.

Congratulations, Josh, on earning partner!
