Mark Hardy Courson was born and raised in Montgomery. Baseball was a huge part of his life through high school and college. He continued his association with baseball a few years later by starting the first travel baseball team in Montgomery known as the Montgomery Thunder. Most don’t know that Mark paid for those kids who couldn’t afford the travel cost out of his own pocket. Through all the baseball years Mark was also very successful in the business world as well. After a successful run at Freightliner Trucking, he came to Carol’s Carpet to work alongside his brother Lee. Mark headed up the commercial and multifamily division at Carol’s and developed and grew that segment from the ground up. Through his persistent efforts, he established Carol’s Carpet as a leader in the multifamily flooring world. Mark felt that every customer was equally important regardless of their size. He not only built strong business relationships, but he developed personal relationships as well. He tried to get every second out of every day. He often jokingly said “you’re going to miss me when I’m gone” and we certainly do.
Mark instilled his vision into Brett Wallace to continue the legacy he created. Brett grew up in the Montgomery area. He has been in the flooring industry for going on six years. Brett has been married for five years and has a beautiful baby boy about ten months old. He went through firefighter school and received his certification firefighter certification. A few months ago, Brett received his bachelor’s degree from Colorado Technical University in Business Administration. Three and half years ago, Brett severely injured his back that almost paralyzed him. His dedication and determination allowed him to overcome his injury. The injury gave him a different insight on life that you cannot take anything for granted. Mark Courson instilled in him that you make every second count of every day, and do not let anyone hold you back from being successful.

About the River Region Apartment Association
In 1972, a group of Montgomery apartment industry professionals met and formed The Montgomery Apartment Managers’ Association. Since 1972, this association has grown and transformed into what is now known as The River Region Apartment Association and includes twenty-five counties in south-central Alabama. The River Region Apartment Association is a non-profit trade association dedicated to unifying apartment industry professionals through education, legislative advocacy and member services. RRAA members are rental housing owners, property management firms, apartment communities and companies that supply products or services to rental properties.
RRAA provides educational opportunities each year such as legal seminars, leasing seminars, and annual fair housing training. Much thought and planning has been put into annual events such as the Beautification Awards, Maintenance Mania and the River Region Awards in order to recognize our industry professionals and to allow industry professionals an opportunity to network. The Association communicates to the members through a monthly newsletter, The RRAA Insider, and the RRAA website has a fresh and informative look to provide members with local, state and national apartment industry information.
As always, a membership in the River Region Apartment Association makes you a member of the Alabama Apartment Association and the National Apartment Association.
