This edition of Meet the Team features Orlando CAM Frank Pelot. Frank’s family came to Florida in 1854. He was born in Ocala and raised in Belleview with his parents and older sister. Frank has also lived in Ohio, Michigan, and Utah, but largely remained in Florida.
Frank enjoys education and learning which is apparent when looking at his college history. Frank holds two degrees including a Bachelors in Mechanical Design Technology obtained from the College of Central Florida and a Bachelors in Business Education from the University of Phoenix. Frank spent many years working in the aerospace industry. He worked on many important projects during this time, one of which was the cruise missile program. He also worked in the stainless steel business before retiring.
Though Frank may have retired from the aerospace and stainless steel industries, he was nowhere near finished working. Frank was and continues to be active on the board of his HOA; in fact, he is currently president of his association. He had a friend that worked in the community management industry also so his interest in the field led Frank to obtain his license. At an FCAP event, he met the owners of Leland Management, David & Rebecca Furlow, and ended up joining Leland three years ago. Frank says he likes working for Leland because of the people, the open and friendly atmosphere, and the technology that Leland utilizes. Frank has obtained his CFCAM designation so he is definitely enjoying the field!
When Frank is not at work, he enjoys playing golf, working with computers, and teaching adult classes at his church. He lives with his wife of 42 years, Judy, and has a son named John who lives in Jacksonville. For the future, Frank wants to continue to remain healthy and active. He currently works out four to five days a week. He also wants to keep working as long as he possible can. We are proud that Frank is a member of the Leland family and hope you enjoyed learning more about him in this installment of Meet the Team.
