Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Ted Young 30 Year Industry Veteran, at one company!

Ted Young-EVP of Rapattoni
I missed this from last week. Ted Young is celebrating his 30th year with Rapattoni. Of course Rapattoni was already 10 years old by then! Which makes me wonder, how old was Nick at that time? But I digress. This is an amazing feat in this business. Most guys I know have been with several different vendors over their career. Congrats Ted!


Executive Vice President,Ted Young, Celebrates 30 Years with Rapattoni Corporation

SIMI VALLEY, Calif., September 10, 2010 – Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni) announced today that Ted Young, executive vice president, will celebrate his 30th year as an employee of Rapattoni this September.

Mr. Young, who started as a programmer with Rapattoni in 1980, currently serves on the company’s executive committee and assists in overseeing the company’s operations. He is responsible for the development of four generations of Rapattoni’s association management software products, and he was the principle software architect behind Rapattoni Magic, a product which is used by approximately 250 real estate associations throughout the United States.

A graduate of the University of California, Santa Cruz, Mr. Young has been an integral part of Rapattoni throughout the years and served in a leadership capacity as the company grew from 15 employees to its current count of over 130. Mr. Young is well known within the real estate industry, and he is viewed as an expert in the field of association management software.

On achieving this milestone, Mr. Young said, “It has been an amazing 30 years with Rapattoni. Technology moves ever onward, and, as time passes, it only advances more and more quickly. What started out as a slow walk in 1980 is now a full sprint in 2010 just to keep up with the latest developments. But that’s what makes it fun and I can’t wait to see what lies ahead. Over the years, the most important thing I’ve learned is that regardless of the technology, the most satisfying part of the job has been working with a wonderful group of customers and having a positive and very real impact on their professional lives.”

Nick Rapattoni, president, said, “I’ve known Ted all these years, and I have worked closely with him since assuming my role as president nearly four years ago. He is an integral part of the Rapattoni past and future, and he has helped this company evolve into the industry leader that it is today.”

Reflecting on this milestone, Andy and Niki Rapattoni, co-founders of the company, stated, “Ted has been with us every step of the way as we grew Rapattoni from just a few employees to the national company it is today. His technical expertise, wit, and charm are role models for the company culture we provide, and they have helped propel him to success within the real estate industry.”
