In alignment with its values diversity, equity and inclusion are at the forefront of our business. Bozzuto’s efforts for greater diversity begin at the top. CEO Toby Bozzuto works closely with Bozzuto Management Company president Stephanie Williams to ensure opportunities are made available for those who want to pursue them. This year has tested the company, catapulting it out of its comfort zones and forcing it to adapt to new protocols with a sense of urgency. In these times, its strength is revealed. Managing the homes of more than 100,000 residents while maintaining safe workplaces for 2,400+ associates remains its top priority. Bozzuto began as a small family company in Baltimore. It’s grown to 80,000 apartments and 2.5 million square feet of retail space under management up and down the East Coast. But it’s most proud of its ability to persevere with kindness. The company doesn’t want to be known for how many buildings it’s developed or how much square footage it manages. It prefers to be known for its meticulous attention to detail. This is how it creates sanctuary.
