Barbara Drummond founded Prime Management, Inc. in 1990 to fill a void in the community association industry. Up until that point, southern New Jersey lacked a local, high quality and affordable professional management company that could provide superior service without excessive cost.  For over 25 years, she has kept Prime committed to that mission while expanding the primary coverage area and range of services it offers.  Since inception, Barbara has branded Prime as a leader in innovation to the community association industry and continues to find new and creative ways to bring value-added services and world class customer service to her clients.

In 1995, Prime attained the prestigious AAMC (Accredited Association Management Company) designation, which is earned through a commitment to integrity, continuing education through professional development and the highest ethical standards. It is through Barbara’s unwavering commitment to excellence that this designation was earned.

Barbara began her career in the property management field over 30 years ago as a community manager for several of the Crestwood Village group of communities that totaled several thousand homes. During this time period, she became one of the first CMCA (Certified Manager of Community Associations) credentialed managers in New Jersey. Later, she went on to continue her professional development and earned the coveted PCAM (Professional Community Association Manager) designation, the highest designation achievable in the community association management industry.  Barbara continues to advance her education through professional development and is considered one of NJ’s experts in community association management.

Barbara is also an accomplished educator and a regular speaker at Community Association Institute lectures and seminars. She has served as a panelist for the Senior Summit held annually; an in-service event that focuses on the 55+ active adult segment of the community association industry. She is highly respected and knowledgeable in all areas of community association management.  As a member of the Legislative Action Committee of CAI, she reviews and takes action on legislation that affects NJ’s community associations on a state and federal level.

Barbara welcomes the opportunity to sit down and talk with prospective clients about their needs for community management and believes that we must earn our existing clients’ business every day. This perspective allows her to continually remain at the top of the industry year after year.

In her spare time, Barbara is an avid concert-goer and enjoys spending time with her husband, children and grandchildren.
