The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) has added to its executive committee and board of directors for the 2014-15 fiscal year. The association’s executive committee and board of directors now includes industry leaders from around the world including Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Nigeria, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United States.
“No longer are individual practitioners left to fend for themselves in the face of increasing expectations and challenges. With IFMA’s help, we can identify the best solutions from around the world and put them to work for us. I am tremendously excited about our shared potential and honored to be given the opportunity to build on IFMA’s past success,” said IFMA chair James P. Whittaker.
