Facility management professionals impact virtually every aspect of their organizations, and in recent years the scope of this work has expanded even further and in new directions. And in January 2018, Facility Executive magazine will recognize one of these leaders with its 16th Annual Facility Executive of the Year Award. Since 2003, this facility management award has recognized a member of the profession for his or her work on a strategic initiative that is effecting real change for the facilities they oversee — and their organizations overall. Or, they have skillfully executed a new construction or renovation project.
Our editorial staff is currently seeking nominations for the 2018 Facility Executive of the Year Award. Materials are due by October 17, 2017.
With a featured profile in its first issue of 2018, Facility Executive will highlight the winning nomination, including an interview with the winner.
Facility executives may nominate themselves for this award, or they can be nominated by others. Each nominee must approve his/her nomination and should be currently be employed by the organization for which the project took place.
Most recently recognized as the 2017 Facility Executive of the Year was Fred Reddig, director of facilities for Ford Field in Detroit, MI. The Facility Executive February 2017 article that profiled Reddig examined the impact he’s made for this facility in a relatively short timeframe.
