June 25, 2014

Jorge Martinez took home 3rd place honors at the National Apartment Association’s competition with a final time of 1 minute, 23.675 seconds. Martinez joined 20 national finalists in Denver to battle for this year’s title.

“Maintenance professionals are essential to the success and viability of the multifamily housing industry,” said NAA President & CEO Doug Culkin, CAE. “NAA is extremely proud to be able to shine a light on such an outstanding group of individuals through the Maintenance Mania® program.”

The maintenance professionals competed to see who was fastest at the water heater installation, faucet installation, duo flush toilet conversion, icemaker installation, fire and carbon monoxide safety installation, key control deadbolt test and ceiling fan installation.

The eighth annual competition was held during the 2014 NAA Education Conference & Exposition. It consisted of eight maintenance-focused challenges that tested competitors’ skills and knowledge of the industry as they competed for the national title and $7,000 in grand prizes. The total prize package for winners and spectators totaled more than $20,000.

Congratulations Jorge for a job well done!
