PHOENIX, ARIZ. — BOMA Greater Phoenix, the industry group that advances the commercial real estate industry through advocacy, influence, and knowledge, named Daniel Mazzon and Jessica Allen as chair and vice chair of its Young Professionals Group for 2018.
Mazzon, Sales Marketing Manager for Allied Universal Janitorial Services, has been a BOMA member since 2016 and will serve as YPG chair this year. Allen, a member of BOMA since 2014, is a property manager with Lincoln Property Company. She manages Luhrs City Center in Downtown Phoenix.
“Our goal in 2018 is to create original concepts that benefit both sides of the business,” Mazzon said. “We will achieve this through quarterly events that appeal to professionals of all levels in the commercial real estate community.”
The first BOMA and YPG community impact event of 2018 is this Saturday (Feb. 10) in conjunction with the nonprofit group Rekindle. “Second Chance Saturday” begins at 1:45 p.m. at 76 S. 12th Ave. in Downtown Phoenix.
“We’re encouraging attendees to bring cases of water, clothes, beverages, backpacks, and supplies to hand out to the homeless,” Allen said. “2018 will be a big year for community impact, building relationships, and business growth.”
YPG’s 2018 events include BOMA Battle of the Buildings; BOMA Bidding Wars; BOMA Battle of the Bands; Young Professionals Summer Splash; and Young Professionals are coming to town Toy Drive during the holiday season.
Rekindle invites the public to the homeless shelter the second Saturday of each month to volunteer. It’s an opportunity for other local groups and individuals to team up BOMA to host their own table at the homeless shelter.
“We bring our own tables and set up our own services,” Allen said. “One table will have backpacks/bags, the next one will have socks, the next one washcloths. We get donations of food as well as ice cold beverages, popsicles, a massage booth, and haircut station. The idea is to get people clothed, looking good and feeling good and bring kindness to the world.”
