Get to Know A BOMA Buffalo Member!

Sherry Lyn Hartel, Director of Industry Development & Technical Services, IMI - International Masonry Institute

What is your favorite thing about Buffalo?

The incredible variety of delicious food options!

What is your favorite time of the year?

The Fall – love the change of seasons here with all the color, the temperatures a bit milder so that many outdoor activities can be enjoyed like hiking and biking but can still get out on the water

What is the tallest building you have been to the top of?

Digressing from topic a bit but a fun story: after college a friend and I moved to Boston, MA together. As we searched for jobs we went to the tallest buildings, went to their directories and applied with those companies. We were both successful in getting into the tallest building in Boston – the John Hancock Tower. Worked as an actuary and worked on the 33rd The building would sway on windy days!  My boss’ window cracked one day, which I still have a piece of.  The windows all had to be replaced early on as the tower created such a wind current it would pull them out - they had to replace them with shatter proof windows-which is what I have a piece of.  There were also days that were so windy we had to take an underground tunnel to get to the subway system so that we literally wouldn’t get blown away.

Where is your favorite place to vacation?

Toss up between ski vacations (I love the mountains) and beach vacations-swimming with turtles on St. John Island-the Carribean my favorite so far.

What accomplishment are your proudest of?

My Hamilton College Degree.

What is your favorite thing about your career?

Meeting the variety of people that I have. I’ve met so many wonderful people within all levels of the industry I find it fascinating to see the different view points as well as the variety of personalities – so many fun people in this area!
