Able has expanded nationally and currently services over one billion square feet, but San Francisco is and always will be our home," says President Mark Kelly. "Being part of BOMA SF is very special, because we have the most active chapter
in the country, as well the most innovative. I travel to meet clients in other parts of the country and they often inquire about BOMA SF's activities. BOMA SF is a beacon for the rest of the country, with programs ranging from the CREATE program designed specifically for work force development. From a sustainability angle at the recent BOMA International Expo, Able showcased new smart bin technology at its booth, helping a startup from Seattle bring their product to market with the goal of diverting waste.
Since the conference, they've already partnered with a BOMA SF members to place the smart bins in their lobby. "You have to create new value for your tenants and visitors" Kelly adds. "Business as usual doesn't cut it" Many BOMA members know Kelly as the Chair of the active Associates Committee, which plans social and networking events like BOMA at the BALLPARK, the holiday party and golf tournaments. "The marketplace collaborates at BOMA. I've realized that we are in the same boat and share similar concerns regardless of which companies we work for. Dedicating time to be a committee member is a serious endeavor which contributes to building long-term relationships and consistently driving more value to the membership" observes Kelly. All of this adds to the Environmental Social Governance. Coming together outside of day to day work to make a difference.
