Facilities Management

Facilities Management
Helbling represents organizations with significant physical assets and real estate portfolios in conducting executive searches related to facilities management and capital construction programs.

Let us help you think outside the footprint.

The facilities management executive of today must be more than a practitioner with technical skills. He or she must now have boardroom and leadership skills, as well as the ability to manage teams and complex capital projects at a senior level. Beyond those qualities, they must be knowledgeable of the quickly advancing fields of energy management, sustainability, and alternative project delivery.

The candidate with these critical skills may not be in your own organization. And, with the scarcity of qualified talent in this discipline, he or she may not even be in your sector. The right person to take your program forward may be outside your network, working at a nonprofit, a university, a healthcare institution, or a corporate center.

We can find that leader for you, wherever they may be.

With nearly two decades of experience in facilities management search across various market sectors, we can cross boundaries to match the right candidate to a position and facilitate their transition from one segment to another. It is one of the unique capabilities that enables Helbling to realize opportunities where other firms do not or cannot.
