Tina Gassman has been named the new president of the Greater St. Paul Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA).
Gassman, who has more than 20 years of experience leading professional organizations, was hired to replace Joe Spartz, who is retiring June 30. Gassman took over on June 9.
As President, Gassman will lead St. Paul’s commercial real estate industry through four key areas of advocacy, education and learning, professional networking, and research. Prior to joining BOMA, she was Managing Director of the Captive Insurance Companies Association and Chief Operating Officer of National Cooperative Procurement Partners. Gassman also worked as a public relations director for the Minnesota Multi Housing Association for over 12 years.
“Tina impressed the search committee not only with her breadth of association management background, but she also struck us as a thoughtful leader who shares our commitment to building on the strong foundations laid by her predecessors,” said said BOMA Board Chair Heide Kempf-Schwarze.
In a statement, Gassman said she was honored to continue the good work of Sparta “and to foster the community that leaders have worked tirelessly to build.”
BOMA was founded in 1971 and is affiliated with BOMA International. She represents owners, managers and service providers of all types of commercial buildings.
