Jeffrey Guenther, PE, CAM and Founder of CMSI has been a registered Professional Engineer in Florida since 2005 and in 3 other states, starting in 1991. He is also licensed as a Florida Community Association Manager (CAM) since 2014 and has been active in his West Palm Beach, Community Association as a Committee Member, former Board Director, and an avid Tennis & Pickleball Hack.
He has over 25 years experience as a Licensed Professional Engineer (PE) with experience as a Structural Designer, Inspector, and Expert Witness for commercial, industrial, marine, and residential structures/buildings (including high-rise, beachside condos). As a CAM, and Committee Member within his own 1400 home HOA, Jeff understands the unique dynamics and concerns of Florida Community Associations.
Born with an adventurous and caring spirit, Jeff also enjoyed working with the US Peace Corps as a Bridge & Road Engineer, and later as a Professor at an Engineering College in Japan.
The 2021 collapse of Champlain Towers South Condo building in Surfside (near Miami), sadly resulted in 98 deaths, prompting the passage of Florida Bill SB 4-D and later SB154, which mandates periodic inspections of Florida Condo Buildings taller than 3 stories, Jeff felt called to contribute to the important work of evaluating Florida's aging condominiums for structural safety. In 2022 he founded Condo Milestone Structural Inspections (CMSI), PLLC to perform Milestone Structural Inspections per the Florida Bill.
See the CV below reflecting the diverse background.
