Get Started Steve Weeks, FMP, CFM Manager, Captial Initiatives, Amsted Rail “Since getting the FMP, I’ve gone from facility manager to being on the executive team for the company. Having the credential has really helped me be a good leader in my company and my salary has tripled.” Matthew Kuhlmeier, FMP, SFP Facilities & IT Director, Haematologic Technologies “The SFP program as well as the FMP program have been very beneficial to my development by providing the knowledge and tools to enhance my workplace by providing creative and new ideas. These programs have also shown to my leadership the benefits by providing confidence and weight to the ideas brought before leadership.” Mary Gauer, CFM Founding Member of IFMA “The CFM gave me a lot of confidence in myself, because I always perceived that I wasn’t smart enough or not good enough as other people were, women especially. So, for me, it was it made me feel really good and so I started to behave that way with other people.” Stewart Livsie, CFM, FMP Manager, Maintenance & Construction, The University of New Mexico “The process of achieving both the FMP and CFM credentials has contributed significantly to my practice of the FM profession, and driven a desire to achieve true operational excellence.” Sarah Reiter, FMP Office Administrator; Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver “I learned so many things that I can immediately take back to my organization. I kind of fell into being an FM without a lot of prior knowledge. I can now confidently return to my org with best practices and recommendations.” Estrella Martinez, FMP Facilities Operations Specialist, US Court of Appeals for Veteran Claims “Because of getting my FMP, I was able to now create a list of what we were going to ask for in our contract, upcoming contract, when we renew. Without the FMP I wouldn’t have been able to know as far as some of the services amenities.” Geoff Williams, CFM, FMP, SFP, IFMA Fellow Director, Operations, Angus Consulting Management Limited “I undertook becoming an IFMA Qualified Instructor because I am convinced of the value that IFMA credentials bring to the future leaders of our industry. I am proud to share my applied knowledge in teaching both the FMP and SFP courses!” Jan Cunningham, CFM Facilities Manager and Director; Waters & Kraus LLP “It really made a difference in my job search. Now, I am taken more seriously. It’s like your CPA, only this is the facilities equivalent of a CPA.” Cynthia Smith Facility Manager; Bradshaw District at County of Sacramento Department of General Services “I can represent any of the core competencies because of my experience in the training that I’ve gotten.” Mohammed Elageed Senior Facilities Manager “As an FM leader, you have to be a lifelong learner through continuous training. Training isn’t an option anymore, it’s a must-have! It allows employees to acquire new skills, sharpen existing ones, boost productivity, and be future leaders.” Darlene Pope President Planon North America “Planon has been fortunate to work closely with IFMA over the years to help real estate professionals and facility managers improve their businesses. We truly value our partnership and membership with IFMA as global leaders in the FM industry. Through IFMA educational events, tradeshows, and other networking programs, we’re able to not only provide thought leadership, but also solutions that contribute to the digitization of FM and help move the industry forward.” McKenzie Lautt Demand Generation Marketing Manager, Velosio “Over the past year, our engagement with the IFMA community has been highly rewarding.
