FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FOUR COMPANIES JOIN BOMA INTERNATIONAL AS SUPPORTING AND AMBASSADOR PARTNERS
(WASHINGTON, D.C.–November 12, 2020) Four new companies announced that they have joined the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International’s Partnership Program as Supporting and Ambassador Partners. R-Zero and WellStat have joined as Supporting Partners, and Marksman Security and Network Services Company have joined as Ambassador Partners. As partners, the companies pledge to support BOMA's critical work in advocacy, education and research.
BOMA International’s Partnership Program, developed in 2004, allows companies to invest in their own success, as well as that of the commercial real estate industry more broadly. With four levels of participation—Cornerstone Partner, Leadership Circle Partner, Supporting Partner and Ambassador Partner—the program demonstrates the commitment of leading organizations to support BOMA International with the resources to advance its various initiatives that benefit the entire commercial real estate industry.
“We are excited to welcome R-Zero, WellStat, Marksman Security and Network Services Company to the BOMA International Partnership Program,” said BOMA International Chair Shelby Christensen, LEED Green Associate. “These partners offer a wide and impressive range of industry expertise, and BOMA looks forward to working with them on programs and resources that will help our members succeed.”
"Like so many others, commercial real estate owners and managers have been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic," said Eli Harris, president and co-founder of R-Zero. "This industry is core to the economic and public health recovery of the United States, and in partnership with BOMA, R-Zero looks forward to helping provide even more organizations with access to disinfection solutions that will enable them to reopen doors, and keep them open safely."
“As WellStat continues to help our commercial customers improve indoor air quality, we are proud to play a role in enabling the safe and responsible re-opening of spaces. BOMA remains a trusted resource for building operators across the country and WellStat is excited to join BOMA as a Supporting Partner,” said Brock Nigg, chief executive officer of WellStat’s parent company, iES MACH.
“What we at Marksman Security found particularly exciting about BOMA International’s Partnership Program was the unique opportunity to elevate those throughout our organization and industry by supporting collaboration with the most admired commercial real estate professionals in the world,” said Shezad Moten, chief strategy officer of Marksman Security. “As an Ambassador Partner, Marksman Security will be well positioned to support BOMA members as they navigate the next generation of security challenges and opportunities.”
“The forward-thinking and innovative perspectives BOMA International brings to its members is unmatched,” said Rebecca Barraza, vice president of Business Development of Network Services Company. “With a focus on supply chain solutions, NETWORK will provide BOMA members insightful thought leadership focused on the janitorial supplies, services and personal protective equipment (PPE) that allow facilities to operate at their best. We are excited to join BOMA International as an Ambassador Partner and look forward to supporting the organization and strengthening our commitment to the commercial real estate industry.”
