The appointment completes CEO Linda Hausmanis’s plan to strengthen her leadership team at BIFM following the appointment of Jaqueline Balian as Commercial Director last autumn.
The introduction of the role further strengthens BIFM’s aim to be the voice representing the FM industry, and the professionals within it, and its intention to build upon the progress made during 2017 with the research programme and policy arm. The role will look to ensure the Institute keeps a finger on the pulse of the ever-changing FM landscape, is ahead of the latest trends and provides leadership for the profession.
This will be Moriartys’ second spell with BIFM either side of a period at workplace effectiveness benchmarking organisation, Leesman. Returning as a key member of the Executive, where he will provide strategic leadership to enhance the Institute’s value proposition, his work will develop and enrich BIFM’s voice and authority on some of the key challenges facing FM.
Moriarty brings extensive professional body experience as well as a track record in delivering industry wide thought leadership and policy campaigns on top of strategic marketing and sales experience as Managing Director for UK & Ireland at Leesman.
Prior to his first spell at BIFM as Head of Insight and Corporate affairs, where he worked to establish the Institute as the voice of the sector, he was Head of Corporate Affairs at the Chartered Institute of Marketing.
BIFM CEO, Linda Hausmanis, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Chris back to the Institute. His knowledge of our industry combined with his customer insight expertise will be a great asset to BIFM and to our membership.
“Chris will play a significant part in helping to develop and enrich BIFM’s voice at a critical time for our industry. His expertise will ensure we shape the right products and services for members and boost our efforts to advance the sector as a whole.”
