Director of Operations
Michael Guzan comes to BEI after 17 years a low-voltage electrical systems integrator, which installed and serviced large-scale VoIP communications, data network, and physical security systems within the Greater Chicagoland, Northwest Indiana, Southeast Wisconsin, and national commercial real estate, education, industrial, and municipal markets. For the last four years, Michael served as the Director of Compliance & Audit, reviewing, coordinating, and implementing best practices across all areas of the organization, with particular focus on field installation and service operations. Prior to that, Michael served ten years as Security Division Service Manager, managing $4.5 million in annual revenue and twelve direct reports, eleven of which were IBEW union service technicians. Michael has also fulfilled marketing and in-house legal counsel responsibilities.
Michael recently served as the Chairman of the BOMA/Suburban Chicago’s Emergency Preparedness Committee for over four years, participated regularly in BOMA Chicago, ISPA (Illinois Security Professionals Assoc.), InfraGard’s Chicago Chapter (the public-private partnership between U.S. businesses and the Federal Bureau of Investigation), and will soon complete his three-year tenure as the Treasurer for the Chicago Chapter of ASIS International, as well as maintaining his membership in the Chicago, Illinois, and American Bar Associations.
As BEI’s Director of Operations, Michael’s responsibilities include overseeing all aspects of facilities and property maintenance, proposed tenant and base building build-out and remodeling projects, as well as supporting his team, including a recently hired Service Coordinator, and long-tenured Maintenance Technicians, as well as a host of highly qualified and reputable subcontractors. While striving to exceed the operational and service expectations of BEI tenants, Michael is working closely with the BEI Sales & Leasing Teams to develop BEI’s third-party real estate management program.
When not working, Michael tends to enjoy the outdoors, taking trips to a family cabin located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, to enjoy fishing, hunting, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. Having grown up in the southwest suburbs, and living in Chicago for two decades, Michael now resides in Downers Grove, IL with his wife Katie, their son, Theo, and their dynamo dog, Annie Oakley, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever.
