The BOMA Hero Awards recognize members in our organization that have displayed hard work, dedication and were real stand outs among our membership.  


2017 BOMA Heroes


Holly Thode is the Business Development Manager for Paul Davis Restoration.
Holly is a member of the Industry Partner committee and is highly involved in helping with events. Holly has taken on major volunteer roles at BOMA events such as the Golf Tournament, Oktoberfest and  Baseball and a Brew. She led the volunteer efforts for the Oktoberfest event this year and last helping with the layout and day-of set up. She never hesitates to lend a helping hand and has a calm, kind demeanor under pressure that our members appreciate. 

Crystal Gamon is a Property Manager at Wright Runstad & Company.
Crystal is a huge advocate for BOMA education. She leads by example and quickly completed all of the BOMA classes in succession for her RPA designation and highly encourages other BOMA members to do the same. She generously offered the conference space in their building to hold classes and has helped assure the classes run smoothly. 

Mick Newell is a Property Manager at Washington Holdings.
Mick is a member of the Emerging Professionals Committee. It was clear early-on that he had leadership qualities and he has demonstrated those qualities throughout his time on the committee. He has shown himself as a leader to the EP community by reaching out to new members of the EP group and making people feel very welcome. He has stepped up as the lead for many Emerging Professional events this year. He was the first to volunteer to be featured on the BOMA video, demonstrating his desire to advocate for BOMA and create awareness about the Commercial Real Estate industry. Mick has a very bright future in this industry and we are excited to see where his leadership abilities take him. 

Jackie Roethel is the Associate Partner, Director of Marketing at Evolution Architecture, LLC.
Jackie has  led the way in the efforts for BOMA’s first Women in Commercial Real Estate event which was a huge success. She is a co-chair of the Membership Committee and an active member of the Education committee. We see Jackie at most BOMA events. She is one of BOMA’s biggest supporters in helping to bring in new Principal Members and helps current Industry Partner members maximize their BOMA benefits. Jackie is a joy to be around and we really appreciate the time and effort that she puts into the projects that she is a part of.

2017 President's Award

Susan Cole is the Director of Accounting at BOMA Seattle King County
Susan has been with BOMA for 14 years and during that time, she has been the Manager of Education, PAC and maintains all of BOMA's bookkeeping. She is the most organized and ethical person we have ever worked with. She genuinely cares for the organization and its members and always demonstrates an excellent member service attitude. Susan is truly a pleasure to work with and BOMA appreciates her very much!

2017 Chairman's Award

Tom Sante is the Vice President at Kidder Mathews.
Tom served on BOMA's Board of Directors for several years and was the Chairman in 2009. It was Tom who envisioned the BOMA PAC of Washington and led its establishment in 1992. Tom was the driving force behind growing the PAC from $2,000 in fundraising the first year to over $80,000 at its peak. He has chaired BOMA's Government Affairs committee and as an advocacy leader for BOMA Seattle King County, has traveled to Olympia and other locations to represent our industry testifying before lawmakers. In addition to his involvement in a number of committees, Tom has been a Mentor to many BOMA members.
