Ian Fielder has announced his resignation as chief executive of the BIFM with immediate effect. He had been in the post since 2004.
He oversaw the transition of the BIFM into new governance arrangements, the development of it as an awarding organisation and a growth in membership from 7,000 to more than 12,000.
He was also instrumental in establishing the arrangements with our partners to deliver FM World and BIFM Training, bringing many benefits to BIFM members. He leaves at a time when seeking a Royal Charter status for the BIFM is a viable option.
“Ian wishes to pursue new interests outside of BIFM and we wish him well in his chosen future career,” a statement on BIFM’s website says. Chairman Ian Broadbent has appointed chief operating officer Gareth Tancred as acting chief executive.
