ABM CEO Wins Business Achievement Award

ABM, provider of facility solutions, is pleased to share that President and Chief Executive Officer Scott Salmirs has received a Business Achievement Award from the international business honor society Beta Gamma Sigma.

“It’s an honor to receive this award from Beta Gamma Sigma and to be recognized along with such amazing corporate leaders,” said Scott Salmirs. “I am grateful to the faculty at SUNY Oneonta, whose relentless focus on applied learning and excellence continues to set a high bar for me and my fellow alumni.”

“As the most prestigious business honor society, we receive nominations from around the world for our Business Achievement Award. We are proud to honor Scott Salmirs’ leadership and business acumen,” said Christina Carosella, Chief Executive Officer at Beta Gamma Sigma.

Scott is the seventh person to hold the position of president and CEO of ABM Industries in the company’s 110-year history. Under Scott’s guidance, ABM has flourished; the $6.4 billion Fortune 500 company has more than 140,000 employees across the world and a focus on long-term growth. Since Scott began his tenure in this role, and initiated an enterprise-wide business transformation, ABM has received many accolades; last year, Forbes named it one of the best employers for new graduates.

Before joining ABM, Scott held leadership positions managing building portfolios at Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, and CBRE. After getting his bachelor’s degree in business economics from the State University of New York College (SUNY) at Oneonta in 1984, Scott earned an MBA in finance from the State University of New York at Binghamton.

Scott is a member of the business advisory council for the School of Economics and Business at SUNY Oneonta. He also serves on the board for The Outreach Project, an organization that helps adolescents and families dealing with substance abuse addiction. He is also a founding board member of Donate Eight, a nonprofit focused on increasing organ donation awareness and registration in the State of New York.

Beta Gamma Sigma’s Business Achievement Award honors individuals for significant achievement in business through the traditional corporate route. The achievement may be demonstrated over a career or by a singular achievement that has advanced the field of business and contributed to a community and to humankind. Scott was nominated for this honor by his undergraduate alma mater, SUNY Oneonta.
