Facilities Management

Think outside of the footprint.

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

Facilities Management can involve more than traditional maintenance and operations of buildings and grounds. Helbling understands that the facilities management executive of today must have boardroom and leadership skills, as well as the ability to manage teams and complex capital projects at a senior level. He or she should also be aware of industry advances, such as energy management, sustainability, and alternative project delivery.

The person with these critical skills may not be in your own department nor even in your market sector. The right person to take your program forward may be outside of your network at another type of organization. We can find that leader for you, wherever they may be.
