Gaedeke’s Property Management Professionals Win Top Posts for BOMA Southern, Southwest Regions

May 20, 2014

The Southern and Southwest Regions of the Building and Owners Management Association International has elected two executives of Gaedeke Group LLC to leadership positions in their respective regions.

Marvin L. Mouser, Gaedeke’s senior property manager for the southeastern U.S., has been named president of BOMA’s Southern Region, which represents 17 local associations, one state organization and 3,000 members in nine states. Dan S. Yates, Southwest regional manager and green program officer, was elected secretary/treasurer for BOMA Southwest, comprised of 13 local organizations in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

Mouser and Yates are BOMA-designated Real Property Administrators, with a combined tenure of more than 50 years in the international organization. And, both professionals have led their respective BOMA chapters as president.
“For a company our size, it’s a little unique to have two of us serving simultaneously at this level in BOMA,” says Mouser, who is based in Nashville.

Mouser has oversight for 1.25 million sf of class A office space in Tennessee, Florida and Washington, D.C., for Dallas-based Gaedeke. He has served three terms as president of BOMA Nashville and held various leadership positions in the past 20 years. He has been a member of the Southern Region’s executive board since 2004, also serving as secretary/treasurer and vice president. He is marking his sixth year on the BOMA International Government Affairs Committee and is actively involved in the yearly National Issues Conference.

Yates, based in Dallas, is responsible for 1.9 million sf of class A office space in Texas and Arizona for Gaedeke. His BOMA tenure includes being named 2011 “Outstanding Member of the Year” for the Southwest Region and BOMA Dallas, which he led in 2010-11. He also has served on the executive board of Texas BOMA and has been a member of the BOMA International’s codes and compliance and government affairs committees.  He most recently chaired the Southwest Region’s finance committee and the BOMA Dallas bylaws and policies and procedures review committee.

Early in their careers, Mouser and Yates looked to BOMA to advance their careers through education, networking and advocacy. Today, they view their active involvement as a way of giving back to their profession. Both believe they have received far more than they’ve given.

“BOMA has helped me to develop more completely as a person,” Mouser emphasizes. “If I am going to belong to an organization, I need to contribute. With BOMA, I wound up learning and benefiting more than I was able to give.”

BOMA’s impact on legislation, codes and property standards is immeasurable for the commercial real estate industry.  “What BOMA does for a company is far beyond what most people think. They don’t realize the value of the membership,” Yates says. “Glenn Lickstein (Gaedeke’s president) and Sabine Gaedeke Stener (CEO) understand the benefits of our involvement and the bigger picture, not just the impact on the buildings we own.”

Mouser joined Gaedeke Group in 1996 as an assistant manager, earning his promotion to senior property manager for the southeastern U.S. in 2010. Yates was hired in 2001 as regional manager for the Southwest and subsequently was named green programs officer leading the company’s sustainability efforts and LEED certification process, resulting in five buildings having achieved the coveted award.
