Tribe Management Team

A Bit of History

1983 – 2017

Tribe Management was born out of 30+ years of property management, as part of the Peterson Property family from 1983 to early 2017.

2012

Our parent company Tribe Property Technologies (then known as Bazinga Technologies) grew out of a vision to connect neighbours with neighbours.

Joseph Nakhla, our CEO’s experience growing up in a six-unit low-rise in Alexandria, Egypt instilled in him a sense of community founded on social values and responsibility with a particular focus on condo-living.

2017

In 2017, our parent company (Tribe Property Technologies) purchased the Peterson strata management portfolio and rebranded it as Tribe Management.

Our focus is to build a tech-enabled management solution that focuses on combining people-forward processes and communication with tech-forward software solutions.

2021

Tribe announced the acquisition of Gateway Property Management, adding significant expertise in strata/condo, rental and commercial management. Gateway was a family-run business born out of Vancouver in 1965. The acquisition expanded the company into seven offices across three provinces.

2023

Tribe announced the acquisition of Meritus Group Management in Toronto, Ontario, growing the team further and expanding Tribe into the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Today

Today Tribe is Canada’s most innovative Property Management company, bringing community management with heart to more than 40,000 homes.

Having lived in multi-family communities, Joseph realized that there was a need for a tool to help Strata Councils and residents communicate efficiently, consolidate documents, and more. This was the beginning to a bold improvement in strata management – setting the foundation to revolutionize the industry.
