Board of Directors

Board members are volunteers who are also residents of the Elizabeth Lofts. They are elected to office for two-year terms at the Annual Owners’ Meeting. You can contact them at board@elizabethlofts.org or through our property manager, Community Management, Inc. (CMI) at (503) 233-0300.

Jim Kennedy, President.

My wife Carol and I are original owners in the Elizabeth Lofts, and have lived in the building since 2005. Professionally, I have primarily been involved in the financial services industry for the last 35 years in the areas of auditing, business development and corporate and private banking.  I’ve served on the Elizabeth Lofts HOA Board as treasurer for the past eleven years.

Paul Mollomo, Secretary.

Sally and I have been residents of the Elizabeth since 2008. I was elected to the Board in 2010 and presently serve as Secretary. Prior to retiring, I was an officer of a Fortune 100 Company responsible for manufacturing operations, purchasing and various marketing functions. I have attempted to apply the same principles learned in business to my Board responsibilities. It is gratifying that Board members work as a team, scrutinizing costs while concentrating not only on the maintenance of the physical structure of the Elizabeth, but the overall quality of life for all owners. I am happy to be part of that effort.

Paula McGee, Director.

We bought our condo at the Elizabeth Lofts in 2014 and moved here full time in 2017 from Seattle after my husband, Joe, and I retired. I spent the majority of my career working in Securities and Exchange Commission compliance for public companies, most recently with Nordstrom. Interesting work – but retirement is a lot more fun. We have been condo dwellers since 2005 and have been impressed with how well maintained and responsibly managed the Elizabeth Lofts is. I am honored to now do my part, as a Board member, to keep it so. I also help out with the Elizabeth Quarterly newsletter and enjoy discussing books with the Elizabeth Book Club. The rest of my free time is spent with family, traveling, hiking/walking/running, and enjoying downtown living.

Brenda Peterson

Brenda Peterson, Director.

I have lived on the 13th floor of the Elizabeth Lofts since 2006 and have been a member of the Board since January 2016. In 2014, I retired from working in Salem and around Oregon for 32 years, both as a lawyer and as a manager of various state agencies. I spent most of my legal career as a prosecutor for the Oregon Department of Justice. I then served as Director of the Oregon Lottery and as President and CEO of SAIF Corporation, a workers’ compensation insurance company. I enjoy traveling with my friends and family, walking, reading, theatre, and art.

Steven Rose, Director.

I have resided in the Elizabeth Lofts since 2016. I came to Eugene in 1971 to study law.  I have lived in Portland since 1974, where I was a lawyer until 2010, emphasizing commercial real estate law for many of those years.  I have been very busy since retiring minding my own business interests, playing tennis, spending time with family and friends and traveling. I have been elected to serve on the Board in January 2020.  I hope to join with my colleagues in continuing to make this a great place to live.
