Join us in wishing two of our employees happiness and health as they move into the next chapter of their lives!

Vice President Marty Morrison, who has been with Southgate for 54+ years, has now retired as of this past month. Marty worked with Mr. Jack O’Neill, the founder of our company, individually their knowledge and business sense was undeniable. They worked to make the greater Newark area a better place to live and work.

Marty has been an active part of the Licking County Library System and a part of cycling groups in the past. Marty loved to travel and we loved listening to all her stories. Marty’s hard work and dedication to not only Southgate, but to her family and friends  has been immeasurable. Her presence is still felt in the office today.

We wish Marty a wonderful retirement!

Assistant Controller, Trish Reid who had been with the company over fifteen years, has left the company to pursue other interests. You may have talked to Trish when calling about your lease or rent. Trish was always great with our tenants and made sure that if there was a problem it was handled quickly.  Trish said she is looking forward to spending more time with her grandchildren.

We wish Trish health and happiness!!
