Meet Glenn Martin of John Hancock.  Chances are already met him if you’ve attended any of our BOMA San Diego events over the past few years.  Glenn is one of our most active Principal Members and currently serves on the BOMA San Diego Board of Directors.

• What is your Company name, your role and what type of buildings do you manage? 

The name of our company is John Hancock.  I joined the organization in March of this year as a Property Manager & oversee 355,000 square feet of mid-rise office and 700,000 square feet of industrial properties in San Diego.  

• What is the most surprising and meaningful experience you’ve had as a BOMA member? 

I remember the first year I joined BOMA San Diego back in 2006 and joined the Community Service Committee.  Getting involved with the summer work party, the back pack drive and the toy drive was a great opportunity to help others and develop great relationships with numerous property managers and service providers alike.  Many of these individuals have become sincere friends and am very thankful to have the opportunity to work with them and partner with them on various BOMA committees.  It is very inspiring to see their involvement and continued success with each passing year. 

• How has your participation helped you advance in your commercial real estate career? 

San Diego is truly a small town and opportunities are all around us.  Being involved with BOMA has been instrumental in my success.  BOMA has given me the opportunity to interact with so many people in varying roles,  led to increased building and market knowledge as well as giving me the inside track when I was looking to make a career change.  The old saying that “it is not what you know but who you know is so true”.    

• What kind of music do you listen to and who is your favorite singer/band? 

I truly like all types of music from Big Band to Blues; Mozart to Metallica and Louis Armstrong to LL Cool J.    Boy I wish they would bring back the show “Name that tune”.
