2023 Education Partners 1
2022 SQ Tom Henkey

Thomas Henkey, CEM
Director of Emergency Management at Titan Security Group
(312) 902-3400    |

Throughout a career cycle, education is vital to evolving as a safety professional. I hold a couple of degrees, and that is great, yet they are a foundation and not a final destination. With the support of Titan Security, I’ve continued learning via programs from the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM), BOMA International, and ASIS International, as well as via agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Homeland Security. And aligned with the Titan values of continuing growth, I hope that I give something back to the community in my role as Adjunct Faculty at DePaul University. Titan Security supports such lifelong learning, and is once again a proud Education Partner of BOMA/Chicago.

Bear Construction believes that lifelong learning is the key to success for our staff and our company as a whole. The construction industry is constantly changing and new technologies are constantly emerging. Bear stays ahead of the curve by understanding and embracing these emerging trends in order to provide top-of-the-line services to our clients. Our commitment to education and client satisfaction are two of the reasons why we have helped three Chicago buildings win a TOBY award. We also enjoy teaching our clients about construction, which is why I helped create BOMA/Chicago’s Construction Drawing Series. Bear is proud to be a Education Partner and we look forward to meeting and working with you.

Education is the lifeblood of our industry. It is the anchor that drives innovation, technical advancement, and growth.  Each generation builds upon the previous.  It is all of our duties to spread the knowledge we have obtained over the years to others in the industry and those in the next generation.

The future of our industry (and the world) is energy efficiency, sustainability, and decarbonization, with a drive to net-zero buildings.  Being a leader in facility optimization, we pride ourselves on being a thought leader, pushing the envelope and continuously reinventing the market.

We are honored to be an education partner and are eager to spread our knowledge to the members of BOMA/Chicago.
