Progress continuing in IFMA collaboration with RICS

09 July 2018

Four new appointments have been announced to the International Facility Management Association (IFMA), all of whom are members of the RICS FM Professional Group.

The move was recently announced as further evidence in the ongoing collaboration between the two bodies.

New IFMA board members are Vinci Facilities commercial director Rory Murphy, who is also a RICS world regional board member for UK & Ireland, along with Gen2 Property chief executive officer Dennis Markey, RICS Global Property Standards director Paul Bagust and Arcadis director corporate real estate Stephen Shallcroft.

The addition of the new members takes the number of directors to 11, six of whom are RICS Fellows and seven being chartered FM surveyors.

Response to the IFMA/RICS collaboration has been praised by members of the PFM Editorial Advisory Board as a positive move for the FM sector.

IFMA chapter president Martin Pickard welcomed the new board members, praising their seniority and respected status.

"This shows just how serious we are to work in true collaboration with the RICS here in the UK to advance and promote the FM profession," he said.

The first IFMA UK chapter breakfast networking event will take place on 25 July at RICS Westminster office, running from 08.30 till 10.30 and will see the launch of the RICS Procurement in FM Professional Statement.

Those wishing to sign up to attend the event can do so here.
