Ms. Piper has more than 30 years of experience in property management, according to a press release.

Her career includes positions at LBA Realty as a senior property manager and Cushman & Wakefield as executive director, client solutions — facilities and property management.

“BOMA has been so good to me,” Ms. Piper said in a prepared statement. “It’s been a foundation for me for 32 years and has been a vital part of my career. I have a great appreciation for what an organization like this can be and do for those in the industry.”

While at LBA, she oversaw a Phoenix portfolio of 4.7 million square feet of industrial and Class A office space. She spent 16 years at Cushman & Wakefield, including seven years in Asia Pacific establishing the C&W Property and Facilities Management Service line in nine countries, including China, the release noted.

“Karen Piper is truly a jewel in our industry, and I am grateful for my association with her. She has been a mentor and a source of wisdom as we served together,” said Darwyn Harp, general property manager with Hines, who took the gavel as BOMA Greater Phoenix President for 2018, in a prepared statement.

“I truly appreciate her willingness to share the benefit of her experience with anyone who would seek her counsel. I am better for having the privilege of knowing her, and the honor from BOMA is certainly well deserved,” Mr. Harp said in a prepared statement.
