Laura Rose, President (Villa 512)
Thank you for voting me on to the Board. I appreciate the opportunity to serve our community; to contribute towards the planned improvements/enhancements to our property; to represent owner interest; to respond in a timely and appropriate fashion; and to work in concert with Myriad Property Management, our maintenance staff and our vendors to ensure positive and mutually beneficial relationships.
I have been the co-owner of a media rep firm for the last 14+ years and have become adept at managing budgets and costs while maintaining a profit. I have a MBA in finance from Western Connecticut State University and a B.S. in marketing and management from Marymount College.
I have been investing in real estate over the last 27 years. I bought my first Villa in 2007 and was thrilled to be fortunate enough to purchase another one in 2015. My time is split between my primary residence and enjoying visits to the Villas whenever I can.
I am very excited at the prospect of what lies ahead and look forward to getting to know everyone. Thank you again for placing your confidence and trust in me.

Dr. Walid Jaziri, Vice President (Villa 1021 & 1121)
First, I would like to thank my fellow Villa owners for electing me to be a member of this fine Board of Directors. I was a member of a previous Board more than five years ago under different management. Joe Brennan came to the meetings as a Villa owner and witnessed the deterioration of the infrastructure of the Villas. He progressively became involved to save the value of our Villas.
I’m a psychiatrist who has been managing a medical practice with 16 employees in Norwich for more than 30 years. I have also been a real estate owner for more than 15 years; I manage multiple investment properties and have become a principal contractor, hiring subcontractors such as plumbers, electricians, and carpenters to repair and maintain these properties. I understand the challenges that come with managing a property, especially one as large as The Villas At The Norwich Inn & Spa.
I learned about the Villas in the late 1980’s and am now the owner of two units. One thing that stood out to me most about the property is the prime location and close proximity to shopping and entertainment. I am confident that our new Board of Directors and management team will work together to improve the value of our wonderful Villas.

John Twohill, Treasurer (Villa 1011)
It has been a pleasure and a rewarding experience working with my fellow board members on implementing changes in the way our association conducts business. I believe that we have been in the forefront on bringing transparency and accountability of our affairs to the members of our association. It has been our goal to welcome more owner involvement by utilizing electronic means for the purpose of voting and communication.
During my current term, I am serving as your Treasurer. It has been a pleasant, educational, and informative experience, which has sharpened my awareness and comprehension of the vital economic and structural challenges that our Association has been, and is currently facing as we move forward. I have benefited from working in close association with Joe Brennan and Sandy Pimental of Myriad Property Management Group. Their personal and professional commitment to work in unison and in conjunction with the Board of Directors in order to secure the goals of achieving the success articulated by the vision set forth by the owners and executed by the Board of our Association is evident through their invaluable contributions. Their commitment to the success of the association is unparalleled and without question.
There is much yet to be done, but I believe that the current team is best suited to manage our long overdue Capital Improvements Project and bring our aging complex into the 21st century by providing physical restoration to our beautiful property while working to achieve a renewed sense of commitment and pride to the goal of increasing the economic value of every owners unit in the years come.
As time will allot and as we move forward into the future I will look forward to the opportunity of meeting every unit owner. I thank you for the opportunity to serve you and thank you for voting me on to the Board.

Chrys Nicolaou Rozek, Secretary (Villa 822)
My fellow Villa Owners and Board colleagues, and Myriad Management respectively, first and foremost, I thank you for the confidence you expressed, to make it possible for me to join our Board. Prior to this Board & Myriad (an amazing team) taking over the operations of the Villas, the condition of the grounds and entire community were deteriorating. Once this Board and Myriad arrived things began to change drastically, into the state it is today. The exciting part is that the Myriad and the Board are not finished. Even with the difficulties of hiring workers, Myriad has somehow kept the whole facility looking great and consistently proven worthy of our unwavering support.
So, as we collectively pursue a path to continue to recognize and support the relentless efforts by both the Board & Myriad and we must not lose sight there’s more work to be done. Our investment in our community as a whole must reach its full potential in market value.
I will support the Board and Myriad Management; they’ve proven to be most effective, proficient and quite capable of increasing the value in our investments.
My professional career began on Wall Street as an investment banker servicing some of NYSE’s top brokers (DLJ, E. F Hutton, Smith Barney, Bear Stearns to name a few). Followed, as General Manager /Chief Operating Officer for a commercial real estate property management company. Under my leadership the company grew exponentially, NYC/ Boston/Washington DC.I have expertise in the financial sector, marketing, and the real estate industry. I am truly a hardworking, dedicated professional with exceptional people skills!
In closing, thank you for your support, I am honored to be part of a winning team whose sole vision has never wavered!
