Amy Hass started with EPIC Management in April 2016 as a leasing agent at that time. She quickly transitioned and moved her way up into Property Manager, Senior Vice President, and CEO for EPIC Companies the last six years. She has been the backbone of growth for the EPIC team throughout the years and leads with a positive mindset and her high-level management expertise.
Originally from North Fargo, Amy graduated from NDSU with a Business Management Degree and is always pursuing new education/mentorship/and leadership goals.
