Board of Directors
Each director serves a two-year term. Their role to assist the neighborhood is voluntary (not compensated in any way). Here is some information about each of the Directors:
Maria Lutin – Maria moved to Echo Mill from Miami, FL with her husband and three kids in the Summer of 2021. She has been a Customer Relations Manager for over five years and currently working on earning her Real Estate License. She is an active PTA volunteer for Kemp Elementary and Hillgrove High School. In her spare time, Maria enjoys leading a Girl Scout Troop and spending quality time with her family. Her passion for leadership has motivated her to join the Board of Directors. Her commitment is to serve this neighborhood and build a community that is engaged, safe and works as a team to keep a camaraderie environment, where all residents can feel heard, respected, and included.
Robert Lewis – Robert has been on the Echo Mill Board or Directors since 2021. After completing a bachelor’s degree in English/Technical Writing, I moved to North Carolina, started my career in the financial services industry as a Technical Writer/Trainer which lead to a development role as a Product Manager. In North Carolina, I was married, had two children, and completed my MBA at Wake Forest University. My family and I moved to Echo Mill in 2002 to continue our careers and education and to raise our family. Our children have grown up here with all of their friends in the neighborhood, started school at Kemp the year it opened, and have now completed their undergraduate degrees at Georgia schools and struck out on their own. As recent “empty-nesters,” we now enjoy visiting family, camping in the mountains, raising our new “kids” (pug puppies), riding motorcycles, and tinkering with classic/sports cars. I am also completing my private pilot certificate and look forward to flying over the north Georgia mountains with my family this fall. Although I am still very active with my career and various hobbies, I enjoy working with the Board, getting involved with this community, and leveraging what I can to help keep Echo Mill a safe and enjoyable place to live and raise a family. This community has been a great place for us to spend our last 20 years and I would very much like that opportunity to continue for others.
Thom Rome – Thom joined the Board in March 2019, volunteering to serve and selected by the existing Board to fill one of the vacant Director at Large positions. Thom and his wife Dorothy moved into the neighborhood in late 2018. My education started in 1970 when I graduated from USMCRD in Parris Island where I majored in discipline, respect, and honor. I further advance my education at Jones College, where I received my BS in accounting. My MBA was award from Golden Gate Extension (Berkley) in San Francisco Ca. I earned MS-IT was award from Columbus State University in Columbus Ga. I have been working in the IT industry since 1990, in both NCR and IBM main-frame and the distributed platform environments. My background is extensive and revolves around programming , risk management, contingent planning, emergency planning, budgeting and evacuation preparedness. Prior to retiring I had to write a contingency plan on returning to working in the COVID environment. My interest is to continue to assure that all common areas and amenities are properly maintained, to assure quality of life for all residents.
Amber Randhawa – Amber grew up in neighboring Paulding county. I have a history degree from UGA and have spend 20+ years working in risk a management and due diligence first for LexisNexis and currently for PricewaterhouseCoopers. My husband and I moved into Echo Mill in 2019. Because of our dogs, elementary age kids and active life style we take advantage of and enjoy many of Echo Mill amenities, so I feel it is important that I do my part to continue to make this community fun, friendly and safe for all our residents from young to teens to busy working adults to retirees.
Ray Yeager – Ray has been on the Echo Mill Board of Directors for the last 2 years. A resident of Echo Mill since 2002, I reside here with my wife Debra.

My desire as an Echo Mill board member is to continue to keep our community the safe, friendly neighborhood that attracted us to it years ago. Additionally, I want to preserve the investment we all have in our homes by making the community continuously appealing to new neighbors who share the same desire to safely raise their families here where they can thrive and develop, and to increase the value of their largest investment.
