We're excited to announce the promotion of veteran City Hall government relations expert Ken Cleaveland to Vice President, Public Policy, and Legislative Assistant John Bozeman to Manager, Government and Public Affairs.
“Cleaveland will be spending more time building external political alliances, and strengthening collaboration with other business groups whose support can help BOMA achieve its public policy objectives,” said BOMA Executive Vice President Marc Intermaggio.
Bozeman “will take on additional responsibilities supporting several of our advocacy committees, and in particular, developing and coordinating BOMA’s stance on public policy issues that impact our members,” Intermaggio continued.
Both have been and will continue to be registered lobbyists for BOMA San Francisco, but are now being given broadened responsibilities at the 1,300-member organization that represents most of San Francisco’s commercial building owners, operators and companies that provide services to commercial office buildings.
Cleaveland has been most recently engaged in the creation and operation of the Alliance for Jobs and Sustainable Growth, a coalition of union and business groups dedicated to growing the city’s economic base and creating new jobs. Bozeman recently successfully completed the highly-acclaimed Leadership San Francisco training program which connected him with many aspects of city government.
Cleaveland, 64, has represented the legislative, political and regulatory interests of BOMA members since 1995. His advocacy experience on behalf of the commercial and residential real estate and construction industries spans 35 years and extends from the local to state and national levels.
Prior to joining BOMA San Francisco, Bozeman worked in the California State Senate as a Legislative Aide for Senator Carole Migden, and at E*TRADE Financial as a General Securities Principal/Team Specialist.
Cleaveland said, “I am proud of the work our association and its members have accomplished over the years, particularly in the area of sustainable practices, advocacy for commercial tenants, and protection of private property rights in San Francisco. I look forward to continuing to serve BOMA and its members in forging greater external partnerships that will help build our city’s economic base while creating new jobs and opportunities for its residents.”
Bozeman said, “I am extremely grateful and proud to represent BOMA as its new Manager of Government and Public Affairs, and look forward to developing even greater member involvement in advocacy on behalf of commercial real estate at all levels of government.”
