Mary Lue Peck Selected as BOMA International’s Next Senior Vice President

(WASHINGTON, D.C. – September 16, 2021) Following a national search, the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International is pleased to announce that Mary Lue Peck will be joining its executive staff as senior vice president effective October 25, 2021. She succeeds Patricia M. Areno, CAE, who will be transitioning toward retirement after a remarkable 31-year tenure with BOMA International.

As senior vice president, Peck will play an integral role in shaping and guiding the strategic direction of the association. She will oversee the management of BOMA International’s staff divisions and direct a variety of programs and services to drive innovation, deliver business results and continue enhancing member value. And, in her capacity as a key ambassador for the association, she also will build and manage relationships at all levels and represent the association to internal stakeholders, outside organizations and business partners to leverage effective collaboration and foster growth.

Peck comes to BOMA International from the National Speakers Association (NSA), where she served as president and chief executive officer. While at NSA, she led the creation and implementation of a long-term strategic plan, expanded the association’s product portfolio and worked to position NSA as the authority on professional speaking. Under her leadership, NSA expanded its market reach, saw significant revenue growth, transformed its membership model and championed new diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.

Prior to her time at NSA, Peck served as chief content and engagement officer at the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) for more than 12 years. In this position, she led the strategic development and execution of all content, programs, products and services, achieving major successes for ISM. These included the implementation of a new membership program, a major repositioning of ISM’s educational offerings and increased engagement with emerging professionals.

“Mary Lue has a long track record of visionary leadership and success in creating and executing organizational strategies,” said BOMA International President and Chief Operating Officer Henry H. Chamberlain, APR, FASAE, CAE. “Her impressive experience leading associations through change and enhancing member value makes her an ideal fit for BOMA International and the members we serve across the globe.”
