Welcome to our New Executive Director

BOMA Nova Scotia recognizes 22 years of exceptional Executive
Director Service and welcomes its new Executive Director.
The Building Owners and Managers Association of Nova Scotia (BOMA NS) is pleased to share this important association news on behalf of our members.
BOMA Nova Scotia’s greatly respected Executive Director, Christine Corbin, of Association Solutions, who has diligently served us for more than 22-years, is officially finishing her contract with BOMA this month and will be moving on to new personal and professional interests. Christine has been a tremendous association manager for BOMA, providing solid guidance, trusted executive services, and the positive communication, education, governance, and event support that we have relied upon since her arrival in September 2000.
We must also acknowledge and thank Christine for her guidance and support of the “BOMA Transition and Search Committee” which led the recruitment and evaluation of applicants to fill the void she leaves behind. Speaking on behalf of its BOD and members, President Kevin Nettle affirmed that “we want to thank Christine for her patience and assistance in this transition and for her many years of loyal service and her dedication to our organization. Her stabilizing influence, steady guidance, and thorough understanding of the needs and the challenges facing our industry will be truly missed.”
On Monday, April 3rd BOMA NS officially welcomed Christine’s successor, Hugh Bray (he/him) as its new Executive Director and will look forward to working with him to manage our programs and to execute a very positive strategic plan in the months ahead. Hugh comes to BOMA with years of senior experience serving government, commercial, industrial, real property, and not-for-profit organizations.
When it comes to understanding BOMA’s mandate and the programs and services it delivers, Hugh will hit the ground running. While serving Colliers Project Leaders as its Atlantic Business Development Manager for more than 11-years, he attended many BOMA events such as facility tours, education events and topical business luncheons, and he maintains many personal and professional relationships with BOMA O&M members and their supplier firms. Over the last 3-years Hugh has also had success delivering management consulting mandates to sector relevant commercial and not-for-profit organizations (i.e. Colliers International, DCI Nova Scotia respectively).
Hugh’s own not-for-profit association volunteerism includes his many years of service with the Acadia University Alumni Association, his 4-years on Acadia’s Board of Governors, as well as his work on the Executive Leadership Committee for the “BMO QE II Ride for Cancer”; a critical community organization that he still actively supports and rides for each year.
His association management and governance experience will be natural complements for the range of business skills that he offers BOMA including membership growth and development, event management, marketing and communication strategy, as well as stakeholder-committee development and facilitation.
As Hugh said, “Christine has been the solid foundation for all that BOMA NS has accomplished over the last 22-years. I am very excited to succeed her and to continue building upon the legacy that she and BOMA NS have created. As we put the last 3-years of COVID behind us we all know that there is much work to do, and this Board has a positive strategic vision for its future. I am so looking forward to supporting them and being part of their continued success.”
In closing, President Kevin Nettle shared these words “our Board of Directors welcomes Hugh with much enthusiasm and excitement, and we look forward to working closely together to attain our strategic objectives on behalf of our industry’s members!”
