SIMA Chief Executive Officer Martin Tirado, CAE, said the association’s growth necessitated the move.
“The new office allows SIMA the flexibility to grow over time, and it gives us a permanent home,” he said. “Financially we found an option to purchase that was similar to leasing, except now SIMA receives the benefits of ownership.”
The association had been leasing space in the same Milwaukee office for close to 8 years. The new headquarters is three miles north of the current office.
SIMA closed on the sale of the headquarters office building in August 2015. Since then, remodeling and updating work have been under way. The majority of SIMA’s professional staff will be working in the new office. In addition, SIMA maintains staff in IA, OH, and NY.
“Having SIMA professional staff in multiple locations allows us to interact and meet with members and affiliated companies throughout North America. Yet, with our base office in Milwaukee we can continue to offer centralized services and benefits to help snow and ice companies grow and succeed,” Tirado said.
The new address is:
Snow & Ice Management Association, Inc.
10140 N Port Washington Rd
Milwaukee, WI 53092
