For our financial reporting, we have CPA’s who prepare monthly reports that are essentially audit ready. In addition, we are well versed in continuing disclosure and compliance requirements in bond documents, having operated in the municipal finance markets since 2003. Equally important, our clients are encouraged to contact anyone at our corporate office with any issue or concern.
COCM began as a division of a larger student housing company known as Capstone, founded by Mike Mouron in 1990. Capstone was a full-service student housing company, having development and operations divisions for both the on- and off-campus markets.
In 2012, Mike Mouron retired, and COCM (along with the other Capstone divisions) became a stand-alone company led by long-time Capstone employees. This change freed COCM to work with other student housing developers. It propelled its growth to become the leading provider of third-party management services for on-campus housing communities (Top Third-Party On-Campus Managers Survey, November/December 2022 issue of Student Housing Business magazine).
