According to APPA Fellow Douglas Christensen, advocate, office of administrative services for physical facilities at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, Reynolds “is truly an example of what this status stands for—exceptional leadership characteristics, skills, and performance.”

He has served APPA as president, director of the Facilities Management Institute, co-director of the Center for Facilities Research, vice president of Educational Services, and dean of Track I of the Leadership Academy.
