Parish Property Management, Inc. (PPM) is a facilities management company founded to serve religious communities and institutions. We fully understand and anticipate the unique needs of our clients and consistently deliver outstanding results in all areas of facilities management. PPM’s mission is to manage our clients’ buildings to better serve their mission.
While working for the Catholic Archdiocese of New York, William J. O’Connor became familiar with the challenges faced by religious institutions in managing their buildings and properties. Older buildings and limited financial resources lead to much deferred maintenance. Additionally, changing demographics and the corresponding evolving needs of religious communities caused many buildings to become functionally obsolete. The tough decision to close or sell such properties versus restore or renovate them for adaptive re-use is a complex issue. Furthermore, maintaining and modernizing the systems of older buildings was taxing shrinking patrimonies.
In December 2003, O’Connor founded PPM to offer professional counsel and his unique experience to institutions with large building portfolios but little professional internal structure to manage the capital projects typically associated with such portfolios. Upon accepting his resignation, the Archdiocese of New York tendered a consulting agreement with PPM and became its first client. Today, PPM’s staff manages hundreds of religious and education properties throughout the Continental United States and the Caribbean Islands. In addition to the Archdiocese of New York, among its Catholic clients are the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), Redemptorist Fathers, Holy Child Sisters, Ursuline Sisters, Carmelite Nuns, Christian Brothers, the Diocese of Brooklyn and the Archdiocese of Newark. PPM manages many Episcopal and Presbyterian Churches throughout the tri-state area including the National office of the Episcopal Church in mid-town, NYC. PPM also serves many clients in private industry.
