About Our TeamA committed group of leaders serving your community.
I have traveled all over the world and lived in many locations, but I am very proud to be able to call Denver my home. There is something quite special about the small town atmosphere, that allows people to actually get to know one another and the special relationships that are able to be developed. I have had the opportunity to work on behalf of the community, and see first hand the broad generosity of the those living here. In a time where the world has become more complicated and often divided, I find great comfort in the unity around common values and mutual respect that exists in a small community. I thank all of you for making East Lincoln a better place to live, and look forward to working with as many of you as I can.
I joined ELBA’s board after living in Denver for 14 years. I have seen this organization make a deep impact on our beautiful community. I especially appreciate all the hard work that goes into the annual Tree Lighting and Christmas Parade, which is enjoyed by so many residents. Now, there are so many projects that we are undertaking that this is an exciting time to be part of this dynamic board.
Born and raised in Southern California and moved to Charlotte in 1999 . Moved to Denver from the crowded East side of Lake Norman in 2009 and have never looked back. Married with two teen age kids. Reason I wanted to join the Board of ELBA is to make a difference in our small community and raise the profile of Denver as a high quality lake community with small community neighborly feel.
ELBA is a beneficial organization that has allowed me the opportunity to pursue initiatives of my concern, act on those concerns, and virtually receive instantaneous gratification, knowing I have contributed to making East Lincoln a better community for today and for the future. If you’re looking for a way to give back to our community and want to improve our quality of life, there’s no better way than joining ELBA
Tony Montanari spent his childhood living in many different states and communities because of his father’s career. He has been a North Carolina resident since 1996 and a Denver resident since 2006. He is the owner of a Financial Planning and Wealth Management business and is also a board member of Sally’s YMCA. Tony is married with three kids and became an ELBA member to help make Denver a place that we can all be proud to call home.
As a resident of Lincoln County for my entire life, I felt it was time to become involved in some way as to benefit the area I live in. When I inquired as to what ELBA was doing I decided it was a perfect match. ELBA offered me the opportunity to be involved in the decision-making process on issues that affects people’s everyday lives in our community. I have gained a lot of knowledge and added to my experience as a Real Estate Agent. I feel that ELBA helps represent me and the people of East Lincoln.
