Ann Arbor, MI McKinley is pleased to announce that Albert M. Berriz, CEO of McKinley, has been invited to be the keynote speaker at the upcoming Energy Conference and Exhibition, May 2 at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI.
Mr. Berriz will speak on the topic "Energy Efficiency, An Economic Tool for Businesses" and provide attendees an overview of how energy efficiency and green sustainability efforts have impacted his real estate business at McKinley, as well as ways in which energy efficiency will continue to impact businesses locally and regionally. In addition, Mr. Berriz will outline energy efficiency opportunities that exist for businesses through utility energy efficiency programs and how business leaders that value energy efficiency will improve their efforts to compete in the global marketplace.
"This is a fabulous conference and I am honored that the DTE and The Engineering Society of Detroit have asked me to present the keynote speech this year," remarked Berriz. "Energy consumption and conservation is a huge issue to the entire team at McKinley given the fact we own and manage more than 33,000 apartment units and more than 8 million sq. ft. of retail, office and industrial space. At McKinley we are constantly looking for ways to reduce energy consumption and waste at all our communities and commercial properties and I hope to be able to pass along some these best practices to conference participants."
