I had the honor of interviewing Thor Emblem of the GSH Group for this month’s Leadership Spotlight. Last month, he was inducted as our Chapter’s President. His experience throughout the years at the Committee level and on the Board of Directors gives him a global perspective on BOMA’s impact on the commercial real estate industry. He is passionate about learning and growing on a personal level, which in turn helps him focus and encourage our members to do the same.
