Lincoln Property Company (LPC) announced the appointment of Senior Property Manager Megan Watkins as 2015 President of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA)–Greater Phoenix. With 315 current members, BOMA-Greater Phoenix serves as one of the Valley’s leading organizations providing education and advocacy for the commercial real estate industry.
Watkins joined BOMA-Greater Phoenix in 2004. She was elected to the Board of Directors in 2013 and served as Vice President in 2014. “Being elected to this position by my peers is an honor,” said Watkins. “I’m extremely excited to help the organization continue to educate and grow in 2015.”
A 15-year industry veteran, Watkins has been involved with the management of more than 1.3 million square feet of Arizona real estate. She is part of the award-winning LPC Desert West Region property management team, which manages approximately 7.0 million square feet of office, industrial and retail property throughout the metro Phoenix market.
“Lincoln is passionate about supporting our property leaders and their involvement in industry organizations like BOMA,” said LPC’s Director of Management Services Alisa Timm. “We are very proud of Megan’s accomplishments and know she is an excellent choice to lead BOMA in 2015,”
Watkins earned her Real Property Administrator (RPA) designation through the Building Owners and Managers Institute (BOMI) in 2008 and her Facilities Management Administrator (FMA) designation from BOMI in 2010. Earlier this year, she attended BOMA’s “The Outstanding Building of the Year” (TOBY) awards in Orlando, Florida to accept an International award for LPC’s management of the Arizona Game & Fish (AZGF) Department Headquarters in Phoenix. The building was among only fourteen buildings from across the world to earn the International honor.
As 2015 BOMA-Greater Phoenix President, Watkins will encourage member participation, continue to advance BOMA’s industry impact, deepen its relationships with public and private sector leaders, and grow the organization through new membership. “We’re always working to improve our value to constituents and connect with those who would benefit from a BOMA relationship,” said Watkins.
