After nearly four years as the IWFM’s director of insight and engagement, Chris Moriarty is set to leave the Institute in the Autumn.
In a statement, the IWFM announced that Moriarty has decided the time is right “to satisfy a long-held ambition to pursue a number of personal projects and opportunities beyond IWFM”. It is understood that these projects will be within the workspace sector.
Moriarty will continue full time until the end of July, at which point he will be employed by IWFM on a part-time basis until the end of October.
IWFM chief executive Linda Hausmanis said: “When he joined IWFM in 2018 at a critical point in its inception, we said that Chris would ‘look to ensure the Institute keeps a finger on the pulse of the ever-changing FM landscape, get ahead of the latest trends and provide leadership for the profession, influencing the products and services that the Institute offers’. Today’s supercharged insights programme, a key asset for IWFM in today’s tough competition for attention, attests to his leadership in this area”.
”Chris has given sterling service to IWFM over the last three and a half years and has helped us to move forward into the new territory. I look forward to working with him both in the coming months and in the longer term as a friend of IWFM”.
In its statement, IWFM also spoke of its continuing focus on “ creating a relevant offering to facilities professionals rooted in professional development”, with a strong research and policy-driven insights programme aligned to a suite of skills and qualifications products at its core.
“The recent appointment of Abi Field in the new role of director of professional development is a strong signal of intent to step up IWFM’s capability in the key area of professional development with new offerings,” the IWFM said, “gearing up the Institute to meet its mission to empower and enable every workplace and facilities professional to reach their full potential and have a rewarding, impactful career”.
