To identify each City’s unique assets and ability to generate economic growth and activity, ensuring the goals transcend beyond a plan or strategy and are implemented, resulting in a clear and measurable increase in the city’s tax base.
We will accomplish this with our team of passionate visionaries who inspire communities to reach their full potential.
Chris Brown & Kim Briesemeister
In 2009—with more than 50 years of combined experience in the redevelopment arena—Kim and Chris recognized that, all too often, cities try but could not get redevelopment off the ground. They draft plans that either sit on shelves or do not produce the results promised by their consultants. The goal of redeveloping an area will only succeed if a consulting firm can accurately identify what is inhibiting a city’s growth. With that in mind, they formed Redevelopment Management Associates (RMA)—a highly experienced, full-service consulting and management firm, headquartered in the state of Florida, specializing in revitalizing core areas and corridors for cities, counties, and special districts nationwide.
Even our logo reflects this concept: the shape is a reference to the city of Firenze (Florence), Italy. If you look at its town grid, the waterways, bridges and neighborhoods, you will see an intricate balance of street networks and buildings combining old and new, people and places. These connections are essential for any city to function well.
As Firenze combines its multiple assets to form a beautifully symbiotic city, our logo also symbolizes that functionality by combining all the professional disciplines needed to devise a complete redevelopment strategy. RMA brings together a phenomenal team of redevelopment experts who are passionate about building better communities and achieving your strategic vision.
We do not merely draft plans, we implement them. Our approach includes an in-depth analysis and implementation strategy, which is essential to change a downtown, a neighborhood, or a tired corridor into a thriving area that attracts businesses and private investment.
Our careers started off in the field, writing and subsequently implementing redevelopment plans and living through the day-to-day struggle of creating change. We truly understand the challenges municipalities face, and especially know what works and what does not.
Our clients sense the passion from our team members because the RMA team is fully invested in your vision, from concept the completion. Your success is our success. There is nothing more rewarding than helping a business open its doors or seeing a city commissioner or mayor succeed at facilitating a better quality of life for their citizens.

Here’s what some of our Clients are saying:
I can say without any hesitation that hiring RMA to help us implement our redevelopment program is without a doubt one of the best decisions that we have made as an agency. I would highly recommend them to any CRA or Municipality that requires expert help in moving their initiatives forward.
– Jeremy Earle, ASLA AICP, Former Executive Director of Dania Beach Community Redevelopment Agency
The best thing the Pompano Beach CRA did was to hire RMA to be our Executive Directors and managers, and they have made milestones of progress in such a very short period of time.
- Mayor Lamar Fisher in an address on October 7, 2010 to the Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce
Pompano Beach Boulevard has surpassed the WOW! factor….Leave it to RMA to get things in motion!! The work you all do makes one prouder to live in Pompano Beach.
- Mark McDonnell, AICP Assistant Director, Planning and Zoning Dept., City of Delray Beach
…RMA provided us with a well-put-together plan that was data-backed, and market-based. The results came almost immediately…just 2-3 years later the Milken Institute named the North Port metro area as the #1 Best Performing City of Florida. Thank you, Kevin, Sharon, and the RMA Team.
- Ruth A. Buchanan, MBA, CEcD
Kim’s ability to help the Fort Lauderdale CRA create a vision for redevelopment and then to gather the private partners to execute on that vision was amazing!
- Alan Hooper, Hooper Construction. Ft. Lauderdale
RMA is proud to have been recognized with numerous awards in multiple fields.
