BOMA Canada’s Don Fairgrieve-Park has been named in the 2018 class of BOMA Fellows.
The executive vice president was honoured for displaying “exemplary and sustained contributions to the commercial real estate industry, the profession, the community and BOMA at all levels and having continually answered the call to leadership and service throughout his career.”
Fairgrieve-Park and other nominees will use the “BOMA Fellow” credential after their names and will be called upon to serve the organization in a variety of capacities, including teaching, mentoring new members and young professionals, identifying future leaders, authoring articles and serving as thought leaders to address industry trends.
Fairgrieve-Park is one of ten BOMA Fellows named this year. He is the second Canadian named to this highest honour, joining Kim Saunders, BOMA Fellow, of Newfoundland and Labrador, who was recognized in 2016.
“The ten individuals honored as BOMA Fellows this year have demonstrated exceptional leadership qualities, as well as a significant commitment to both BOMA and the commercial real estate industry,” said BOMA International chair Rob Brierley. “Through their service as BOMA Fellows, they will continue to advance the industry and help guide the next generation of property professionals.”
“An advocate for BOMA programs and providing great tools to the industry to advance better management practices, Don is a valued resource, advisor and mentor to BOMA Canada” said the association’s current chair Anne Marie Guevremont. “I am delighted he is being recognized.”
“It is no surprise that someone as dedicated as Don would be recognized, He is a remarkable leader who is tirelessly dedicated to the commercial real estate industry,” said Benjamin Shinewald, President and CEO of BOMA Canada.
