Helbling conducts facilities management retained executive search and secures senior facility executives as well as mid-level and related professionals within this sector.
Over the past several years, facilities management has become highly complex, and organizations that have significant real estate assets must develop and execute strategies to maximize budgets, reduce operating costs, and leverage new technologies.
These types of objectives command teams of professionals who have broad skill sets that span from strong technical abilities, financial aptitudes, and business acumen to knowledge and understanding of the latest technologies and advancements within energy management, sustainability, and alternative construction methods.
Many entities are embarking on large capital construction programs, which dictate needs for individuals who are adept at overseeing construction processes, monitoring budgets, implementing cost-saving measures, and employing other strategies to ensure projects are successful and generate a high return on investment.
Other organizations are looking to leverage their real estate asset portfolios by monetizing them or by leasing non-core assets to generate funding for primary objectives.
Regardless of their goals, organizations need professionals with expertise in these areas, as well as critical intangible traits such as strong communication and presentation skills; abilities to build, lead, and empower teams; and the persona necessary to develop relationships with board members, executive leaders, and end users.
