Holly Franklin
Executive Assistant

Executive Assistant to Michael Brodsky, the Owner of Brodsky Built, which includes Hamlet Development Corporation, the Granton Square Office Building, Birkhill office condominiums, and Elsinore Communications. Since joining the company in 2017, she helps operate the day–to–day functions of the various companies, including the administration of Elsinore Communications and Hamlet Design. Holly is also involved with overseeing commercial rental properties at Birkhill and at the Granton Square office building in Murray where their corporate offices are located.

Holly is an experienced Executive Assistant (EA) with over 16 years in serving C-Suite executives. She has extensive experience with Microsoft Office Suite, and Microsoft Publisher which she uses to create the corporate brochure, annual business plan, and investor proformas for each project.

Holly assists in the management of all development projects and related business correspondence, and is the primary point of contact for the Company. Having held EA positions in the HOA, commercial lending, and international sales industries, she is able to tailor her skills to meet and anticipate the needs of various leaders and their clients. Holly excels in clear communication and assists in the coordination of all business-related activities, both external and internal to the Company, including travel and project planning.

Holly is very dependable and can be trusted with matters of extreme importance and high confidentiality. Before joining Hamlet Development, a Brodsky Built company, Holly worked for one of Utah’s largest HOA management companies as the Executive Assistant for the President. Previous to her EA role, she served as an HOA Portfolio Manager. As a portfolio manager, Holly managed approximately 20 communities throughout Northern Utah which included condominiums, townhomes, and private single-family residential communities. In this role, she facilitated vendor maintenance, tracked association spending and income, created community newsletters, prepared annual budgets, and worked closely with the elected board members to conduct their monthly and annual meetings. Holly was an advocate to the homeowners she served and enjoyed working with board members and developers to ensure their amenities were maintained, CC&Rs were enforced, and homeowner’s expectations were met.

Holly’s experience in the HOA industry gave her the experience to grow in residential development, specifically with the involvement and understanding of homeowner’s associations. She now assists in the preparation of the CC&Rs and Bylaws for all community projects.

Holly grew up in Ohio and moved to Utah in 1993 to attend what is now Utah Valley University, where she majored in psychology and education. Her love of the arts gave her an early opportunity to work at a local art studio and gallery where she managed the reproduction process of fine art giclée prints for painters and photographers. Working in this industry helped mature her appreciation for detail and organization. After 5+ years at Coleman Studios, she found her first executive assistant opportunity serving the CEO of a commercial lending brokerage and has continued with that career path ever since.
