Sun City West resident Kenneth Olson has been hired as the Interim General Manager for the Recreation Centers of Sun City West.

Olson, who holds a mechanical engineering degree and has worked for years in real estate and HOA/property management, will join the Association on Wednesday, April 24, announced Board President Lisa Vines.

“We are excited to welcome Ken to our staff and look forward to his contributions,” said Vines. “With his experience, he will acclimate quickly to help us bridge the gap until a full-time general manager is hired.

“We anticipate hiring a General Manager within a six-month period. Ken will be an integral part of the transition as we onboard the new General Manager.”

Olson is an accomplished executive leader, engineer, and environmentalist. He has a passion for resource management, specifically water and energy, which has formed the foundation for his cost-effective conservation initiatives in the HOA industry.

Olson is a life-long learner who spends his free time traveling, painting and container gardening in his backyard conservatory.

The Governing Board has a search committee in place to find a full-time general manager. Olson will serve until that time.
