These professionals bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the organization globally renowned for thought leadership in facility management (FM) and workplace strategy.
“I am pleased to announce we had an overwhelming response to fill the limited vacancies on the IFMA global board for 2018-19,” said Tier. “I would like to thank all the applicants for their dedication and service to the profession and IFMA. As incoming chair it is essential that I ensure the organization is supported by a well-rounded board of industry professionals to shape the future of IFMA and further advance our global leadership position. Our new board members are outstanding additions who complement the seasoned team we have in place. I look forward to working with them in raising the industry bar and defining FM globally.”
The new board, including the executive committee, represents the global geographic footprint unique to IFMA as well as a broad range of industry subject matter expertise, including unique insight into the evolution of the strategic workplace.
