FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

(WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 28, 2012) Orkin, an industry leader in commercial pest management, has announced that it will expand its commitment to the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International, moving from a Leadership Circle Partner to a Cornerstone Partner, BOMA’s highest category of corporate partnership.  As a Cornerstone Partner, Orkin will support BOMA’s vital programs in advocacy, education, research and membership.

BOMA International´s Partnership Program, developed in 2004, allows companies to invest in their own success and viability, as well as that of the industry.  With three levels of participation—Cornerstone Partner, Leadership Circle Partner and Supporting Partner—the program demonstrates the commitment of leading organizations to support BOMA International with the resources to advance its advocacy, education and research initiatives that benefit the entire commercial real estate industry.

“We are pleased Orkin has elevated its long-standing partnership with BOMA International to the highest level of support,” said BOMA International Chair Joseph W. Markling, managing director of Strategic Accounts at CBRE.  “By becoming a Cornerstone Partner, Orkin has demonstrated its unwavering dedication to both BOMA members and the commercial real estate industry.  Together, we hope to continue developing the programs and resources necessary to help our industry thrive.”

“Orkin Commercial Services proudly supports commercial real estate properties across the country—many of which are owned, operated or managed by BOMA members,” said Tyler Love, commercial marketing manager for Orkin.  “As a long-time corporate partner of BOMA, our new Cornerstone Partnership role will give us more opportunities to learn from members, allowing us to gain even greater insight into meeting the needs of the industry.  It will also help us shape the products and services we offer to best provide for the success of BOMA members’ buildings and the satisfaction of their tenants.”
