Parkside Community Association hires interim manager for permanent position


ANTHEM – Mary Beth Zahn has been officially hired as the Community Manager for the Anthem Parkside Community Association. Zahn has been the interim manager since last March, after the departure of former Community Manager Annette McCarthy.

In a release set out on Sept. 17, the Parkside Board of Directors announced that Zahn had been hired for the position. The release noted that four candidates had been interviewed for the position during open recruitment after the job was posted on July 22.

In the release announcing Zahn’s hiring, Parkside Board of Directors Vice President Bettye Ruff called Zahn’s performance during her six-month trial period “exemplary.”

“During her six months as interim manager, Mary Beth's job performance was exemplary and we are confident Parkside residents will join us in welcoming her to this position,” said Ruff. 

Before assuming the role of interim community manager, Zahn was the Administrative Assistant for the Anthem Parkside Community Association for more than five years. Her qualifications include an Associate of Arts in Business and a Certified Arizona Association Support Person certification. Zahn has been an Anthem resident for seven years.

The Parkside Board of Directors released a statement at the end of May noting that open recruitment might not be held. Recruitment was opened, however, in July, and multiple candidates had applied online within the first week. Four candidates were interviewed in the recruitment period. Zahn was ultimately chosen as the community manager.
